It's probably too early to talk about snow, but if you like snow and you want to have fun on the mountain this winter, it's never too early to talk about the coveted Mount Washington Season Pass.
“Season Passes are on sale right now at the early bird rate,” explains Season Pass Coordinator Maureen Thomson. “The deadline is September 30 and as a bonus, if you purchase by August 31, you will be entered into the draw for a weekend getaway to Middle Beach Lodge in Tofino and a $100 Mount Washington Gift Card.”
Season Pass members who purchase their passes before the September 30 deadline also receive up to 20 percent off regular season rates. For example, the mountain's premier Gold Season Pass for adults sells for $952 plus HST if purchased before the the early bird deadline. As of October 1, the Gold increases to $1190 plus HST.
Families receive even further discounts which range from 15 to 25 percent off the already reduced early bird rates. Discounts vary depending on the number of family members.
“An extensive lineup of passes are available; Gold, Student, Night, Nordic, Midweek, Super Senior, we have something for everyone,” Thomson adds.
The Student Season Pass has increased in popularity in recent years after the removal of all blackout dates, making the Student pass a true full-winter, seven day a week season pass. The Student Pass includes Alpine, Night, and Nordic skiing, all for just $496 plus HST at the early bird rate.
Mount Washington's Night Pass is another popular and more economical option at $143 plus HST at the adult rate. The Night Pass gets, quite literally, an additional lift this winter. The mountain is adding Sunday nights to what was previously a Thursday to Saturday night program. The mountain also runs Night Skiing every night during holiday periods.
With huge savings and a chance to win a sublime getaway to Middle Beach Lodge beckoning, don't delay. Get your season pass today!
