Higher Education College Season passes for five mountains are currently on sale for college students. The passes run for $319 and can be used at Mount Snow, Attitash, Wildcat, Crotched and Jack Frost-Big Boulder. This season pass gives unlimited riding at any of the mountains and also includes two midweek, non-holiday, Bring-a-Friend lift tickets for $40.00. You may use this bonus for friends or family members. Anyone who wants to purchase these season passes has to be a full-time student and needs 12 or more credits for the fall 2011 semester.
This discounted passes will be great for students who are looking to go snowboarding or skiing over the winter and want to save money while doing it. Normally a lift ticket would run for about $83 on a normal weekend. This means that a person without a college season pass would snowboarding or skiing go only four times and spend the same amount of money as a season pass which is unlimited. Clearly, this is a better choice for college students with an interest in winter sports. Also, with the two midweek Bring-a-Friend lift ticket discounts, students can enjoy the low prices with their friends.
In order to prove that you have the right amount of credits, students have to give a letter from the school’s registrar office. The letter needs a letterhead to show evidence of a full-time enrollment in the school and also provide photo identification. Prices for the season pass will go up on December 13, 2011, so students should take advantage of this sale before time is up. Visit the Registrar’s Office to get your letter and grab one of those passes before time runs out!
