ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — People who buy season passes at Aspen ski resorts will have to pay $25 to $50 more this year because of the improving economy.

Aspen Skiing Co. officials said Thursday customers can absorb a modest increase in pass prices to help cover the increasing cost of doing business.

According to the Aspen Times ( ), the company is raising the price of the Premier Pass from $1,549 last season to $1,599 for the coming season.
