Aspen Skiing Co. announced pricing for 2019-20 chamber season passes on Friday.

Passes for members of the chamber of commerce will go on sale Monday, Aug. 12, according to a press release from SkiCo. The passes are divided into three tiers the same way they have been in the past.

The Premier Pass, which will cost $1,470 for chamber members through Sept. 13, allows for unlimited skiing and riding on all four Aspen/Snowmass Mountains.

Ikon Base passes will also be included with any ­Premier pass this year, which was announced in early April. Ikon passes include unlimited access to 12 destinations as well as five days at select destinations including Steamboat, Copper Mountain, ­Arapahoe Basin, Jackson Hole and others.

The other two passes have a similar pricing model when purchased by Sept. 13. The Double Flex Pass, which will cost $1,299 for chamber members, and the Flex Pass, which will cost $939 for chamber members, allow for two days a week and one day a week on the mountain respectively.

After the Sept.13 deadline, prices raise for all passes and they raise again after Nov. 15. The passes are all eligible for early- and late-season openings and include a variety of perks in addition to their role as lift passes. They can be added to Aspen Cards, which are used to speed up lift lines, and cost $5 for a new one.

According to the SkiCo release, the planned operating dates for the four mountains are: Snowmass: Nov. 28, 2019-April 19, 2020, Aspen Mountain: Nov. 28, 2019-April 19, 2020, Aspen Highlands: Dec. 7, 2019-April 12, 2020 and Buttermilk: Dec. 7, 2019-April 5, 2020
