Vermont’s Magic Mountain Holds To ’09 Prices; ‘Keeping It Simple’
"Magic prides itself in keeping it simple,” says Magic Mountain Ski Area President Jim Sullivan. Newly announced lift ticket prices reflect that mantra, holding steady since 2009.
“We are focused on delivering an exciting ski and ride challenge on the region’s best natural terrain, augmented by an expanded snowmaking system covering up to 75 percent of the area, and a warm, friendly central base lodge. Our goal is for parents with kids in tow and 20-something new workers to have an affordable winter home to grow with, and be challenged by, for the rest of their lives.”
Ticket pricing for the 2012-13 season stays at $59 for adults, weekends and holidays, and $39 for non-holiday weekdays. Teen and junior prices are $51 and $39 respectively on weekends and holidays; $35 and $25 weekdays. Children under age seven are free. Season passes are all under $500, but the best deals are available until Oct. 10.
The ski area is selling an all-holiday “White Out” pass for $249 which covers all 19 holidays, making it just $13 per day if one skied on all of those days. Magic’s unrestricted college pass is $149.
Magic’s officials say “it is still important for the industry to have an affordable alternative which delivers a rewarding ski experience at a reasonable price, recognizing the needs of young adults, families, and even those top earners who appreciate a good value.”
