The past week sure has felt like winter. We've picked up over a foot of snow in the past seven days, thanks in large part to 7"-9" that fell on Thursday night. Our snowmakers have been hard at work since Sunday making snow around the clock. We are on track to open on December 8th. So, what can you do to prepare yourself for Opening Day? I'm glad you asked.
Today we'll be printing and selling season passes and Powder Passes at the Richmond Holiday Market from 9:00am - 3:30pm. We'll be located in the Teen Center on the bottom floor of the Town Hall. This is a great opportunity to pick up your pass early and avoid having to do it on your first day at the mountain.
The Powder Pass is a great option for the person not yet ready to commit to a season pass, it gets you five All Access Lift Tickets for just $199 for adult and only $149 for youth/college/senior. The tickets are valid any day with no blackout dates and you may redeem multiple tickets in one day. This also makes a great gift.
Yeah, I said "All Access Lift Ticket". Yes, this is new this year. The All Access Lift Ticket not only gets you on the lift for the day but it also gives you access to 100km of Nordic and backcountry terrain as well as access to the Sports Center with pool, hot tub, sauna and games for the kids. Now you can enjoy a free soak in the hot tub after a day on the slopes.
Next week we'll be "popping up" in two shops in Montpelier and selling a limited number of $39 All Access Lift Tickets. These tickets are valid all season long with no blackout dates. Again, a great gift, or something to keep for yourself. We'll be at SlopeStyle Ski and Ride on Tuesday, December 4th and Onion River Sports on Friday, December 7th. Both sales run from 4-7pm or until we sell 250 tickets. Limit two tickets per customer.
