Jay Peak
Our Season Pass prices are set with both our bottom line, as well as the pockets of our guests, in mind. The two aren’t mutually exclusive, believe me. And, we get lots of fan mail from smarter-than-thou GM’s wondering why our prices, specifically our Triple Major College Pass, are set so low. Well, they don’t so much wonder as they whine about the disservice we’re doing to the collective core of mankind. $569 for an unrestricted Adult pass-good every day of the season. $269 for college kids gets you access to Jay Peak, Bolton Valley and, new this year, Mad River Glen. A midweek option at $319 and a few family passes. You won’t need the Rosetta Stone to sift through our Pass brochures or our website and you won’t need the better part of a week to look at restrictive mice-print; you’ll just need to adjust your expectations. Skiing and riding doesn’t have to be prohibitively expensive, period.
Both literal and figurative. Means that if the impetus behind your ski and snowboard vacation isn’t, actually, skiing and riding, you may want to head someplace else. How many resorts are in a position to say that? Not many. Hey, we have our share of pubs, eateries and quaint country stores (3, 3 and 1), but this place isn’t for midnight buffeters and those looking for pony rides. It’s for folks looking to challenge themselves at every level. We are who we are. We don’t have to be all things to all people. We're for those that get it. And we’re all the better for it. Rant off.
