Joint Pass Deals Move East: New England College Students Benefit
The flurry of western resorts offering joint passes has crossed the Mississippi (actually the Hudson) and moved to New England. College students now have their own deal with the all-new “4.0 College Pass.”
Four New England resorts – Mount Sunapee, N.H.; Killington Resort , Okemo Mountain Resort, and Pico Mountain in Vermont - are partnering to offer undergraduates and graduates unlimited skiing and riding at their mountains.
The cost of the pass is $399 (plus tax), available for purchase through Dec. 15, 2013. The pass also includes five pre-loaded 50 percent off college buddy tickets and more. Passes can be ordered at each resort’s website or at the ski areas.
Mount Sunapee, Killington, Okemo, and Pico Mountain collectively have 378 trails, or 150 miles, of skiable terrain with 8,727 vertical fee, 19 terrain parks, and 59 lifts through this pass.
“This is an unprecedented partnership between four of New England’s top resorts that will offer more for college pass holders, while at the same time allowing us to explore other partnership ideas with Killington and Pico for the future,” says Okemo’s Bruce Schmidt.
Pass benefits vary at each resort. For example, those who purchase through Mount Sunapee will receive a $25 credit pre-loaded good at any food and beverage location at Sunapee, 10 percent off retail in the Snow Sports Shops, $15 off rental equipment, and an free 3-jump AcroBag Airbag, in addition to the discounted College Buddy Lift Tickets.
Killington plans to open in early November, Okemo mid-November, Mount Sunapee late November, and Pico mid-December.
