Season Passes

Planning on skiing 10 or more times next season? You should consider buying a season pass for the best deal and quickest access to the trails.

Our regular Season Passes give you access via skis or snowshoes. New this year we are also offering discounted snowshoe-only and fat tire bike/fat bike add-on season passes.

A season pass is the best value, and comes with some great perks:

  • Access the trails, and track your number of ski days with a quick scan of your pass each time you ski.
  • “Early bird” access our trails and the new locker and wax rooms from 7 a.m. on non-storm days
  • Access to wax room, restrooms and showers until 5:15 p.m.
  • Upgrade to a Cross Country/Downhill “Combo Pass” and also enjoy season long ski benefits at Downhill ski area.

FAT BIKES – This is a new stand-alone pass or can be an add-on to an existing season pass. Access allowed only on specified Fat Tire Bike Trails when conditions allow. Please note Trails will be closed to fat tire biking in soft conditions, warm temperatures and fresh deep snow. Fat Tire Bikes are asked to give way to skiers and snowshoers. See the grooming report for the open/closed status of fat bike trails.

SNOWSHOEING – Access allowed on all ski and snowshoe trails. Snowshoers are encouraged to travel on the snowshoe routes (especially in soft conditions) to minimize damage to the ski trails. Snowshoers are asked to give way to skiers and not to walk on the classic ski tracks. See our snowshoe page for more information.

DOGS – Dogs must be well behaved on and off leash around people and other dogs. Proof of rabies, distemper and parvo shots must be provided. Access allowed only on specified Dog Trails. Some restrictions on Weekends and holidays. See the Dog Trail page for full details.


Season passes come with even more benefits this year. How does 10% off food and merchandise at Cross Country or Downhill sound? Plus, if you buy a combo pass, you’ll get 10% off at Pizza on the Hill and The Lodge Restaurant and Pub through spring 2017. Additionally, with your pass you will enjoy free access to Snowplay.
