Celebrating its 40th, The Gant Shows its Gratitude with a Series of Deals & Perks

Starting in October, offers will include $40 lift tickets, 40% discounts, 4th night free and more.

ASPEN – On Dec. 27, 1973 The Gant opened its doors for the first time welcoming guests and new homeowners to Aspen’s first, hybrid hotel- condominium resort. Forty years later, this award winning resort remains at the forefront of the Aspen lodging community and has hosted upwards of one million travelers from around the world. Recognizing that The Gant could not have reached this milestone without the patronage from its guests, the resort is launching a 40 and Climbing promotion to show their gratitude. The new promotion, which will run Oct. 8-Dec. 28, will countdown to The Gant’s 40th anniversary with a different weekly offer. Each deal will be available to book for 40 hours and will feature a variety of ways to save, such as 40 percent lodging discounts, $40 lift tickets, fourth night free, $40 American Express card and more.

“For 40 years, The Gant has had the distinct privilege of being part of countless vacations, meetings and special events,” said Donnie Lee, general manager at The Gant. “As such, it was only fitting to share our anniversary milestone with our past and future guests. After all, we wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for our guests.”

Starting Oct. 8, The Gant will launch its anniversary-inspired 40 and Climbing program, which will showcase a different deal every other week leading up to the property’s 40th anniversary date,Dec. 27.
