The Freedom Pass Is Now Free
The Pass Unites Thirteen Ski and Snowboard Areas From Alaska to Maine
LEADVILLE, CO. (Sept. 27, 2016)
Big changes are in store for the Freedom Pass. The pass is now free for all season pass holders at partner mountains, and the number of partner mountains has more than doubled from last season.
The Freedom Pass was created two seasons ago with the goal of offering flexibility and added value to pass holders at six New England ski and snowboard areas. There was a $50 additional charge for each pass holder to upgrade to the Freedom Pass. This year the up-charge has been dropped and the number of partner mountains has increased to thirteen, spanning the country from Alaska to Maine.
The concept is simple. Pass holders at participating mountains are now able to get three complimentary lift tickets at each partner mountain this season. There is no additional charge so all full pass holders at each partner mountain are automatically part of the Freedom Pass. Pass holders simply take their pass to a partner mountain to receive a complimentary lift ticket for the day. There is a limit of one ticket per pass holder, per day and a limit of three tickets per pass holder at each partner mountain over the season.
“We feel the new format adds a tremendous amount of value for our pass holders” said Josh Arneson, VP of Sales and Marketing at Bolton Valley. “By eliminating the additional charge, and doubling the number of mountains involved, all pass holders at our partner mountains will now have even greater flexibility. Some may even elect to take a trip to an area on the other side of the country, knowing they will have complimentary lift tickets when they get there.”
Patrick Torsell, Director of Marketing, IT, and Slope Maintenance at Cooper adds: “We’re really excited to join the Freedom Pass, and to offer our pass holders the opportunity to explore more ski areas across the nation. Each of these areas shares Cooper’s passion for providing an authentic and family-friendly skiing experience. And as the only Colorado resort on the Pass, we look forward to introducing pass holders from our partner resorts to the unparalleled experience of Colorado skiing.”
