Youths Are Served With Powdr Corp., Woodward Combo
Six Powdr Corp. resorts have hooked up to give youngsters more reason to hit the slopes – and to hone their terrain park skills during the offseason.
The Park City-based multi-resort owner now offers free skiing and riding at any of the participating half-dozen mountains with a youth pass from any of the resorts. In addition, youth/teen pass holders who have a 2013-2014 season pass in hand by May 1 get $200 off the cost of a week at any of Powdr’s Woodward summer action camps.
“Powdr and Woodward know that the youth are the future of our industry,” said John Cumming, chief executive officer of Powdr.
Pass holders 17 and under (18 and under at Killington and Mt. Bachelor) merely show their home-area pass at the ticket window and get a day pass. Even adult pass holders get into the deal: They receive 20 percent off the daily lift ticket price.
Woodward, which was purchased by Powdr in 2011, has four camps across the country. Copper and Boreal host the Woodward camps at winter resorts, while camps also run in Woodward, Penn. – the original location – and Tehachapi, Calif.
The $200 savings on a week at one of the Woodward camps represents 15-20 percent off of the full fees, which range from $949 to $1,199 depending upon when the camp is run.
At Park City Mountain Resort, the under-18 season passes begin at $135 for ages 7-12, and $180 for teens if purchased before May 16. Preseason prices for adults begin at $695.
