Hardcore Skiers and cold-blooded snow fiend - listen up:

Ski Utah announced its 2011-2012 Yeti Pass today - one that will enable pass holders to ski one day at every Utah resort (that's 14 if you're counting) for $499. (Which equates to $35 per day....if you're counting).

The pass was created in correlation with the Ski Utah 5th and 6th grade passport program, where students ski free at each resort - making it an ideal accompaniment for parents of these students. For the kid-free or even beginners, it's a great opportunity to explore all the state's resorts without being stuck to just one or to help find a favorite.

In addition, Yeti pass holders are invited to take part in the first-ever 'Yeti of the Year' contest - challenging pass holders to ski at all 14 resorts. First person to complete the challenge will receive an 'unforgettable heli-ski day with Wasatch Powderbird Guides' - which, of course, is meant for advanced skiers, beginners will be awarded a prize of equal value. All you have to do is grab the smart phone and snap a pic of you at each resort tix window w/your yeti pass and post it to the Ski Utah Yeti Facebook fan page and tag the Ski Utah Yeti in your photo.

Passes go on sale Aug. 1 with only a limited amount available. Resorts include: Alta, Beave Mountain, Brian Head, Brighton, Canyons, Deer Valley, Eagle Point, PCMR, Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, Snowbird, Solitude, Sundance and  Woolf Mountain.
