This is winter – enjoy it with a shiny

September savings on season pass to Mount Washington

Early birds will get good deal on a variety of packages for upcoming snow season


Winter is coming. That’s about as sure a thing if there ever was one. And with winter comes snow. And with snow comes skiing!

Mount Washington Alpine Resort notes that purchasing a season pass is by far the best way to take advantage of the impending snowy winter. Don’t contemplate too long because September is the time to take advantage of the savings.

“We’re offering up to 20 percent savings off regular rates when you purchase your pass in September,” explains season pass coordinator Maureen Thomson. “Don’t wait, early bird rates end at midnight on Sept. 30.”

The coveted season pass is by far the most popular product on offer at Mount Washington with thousands of people signing up to become members each winter.

“The more you use your pass, the more you save,” explains mountain spokesperson Brent Curtain. “I know a lot of pass holders that end up riding for under $20 a day when you divide the price paid vs. the number of days on the mountain.”

The value goes beyond just enjoying the snow on the mountain. Passholders receive exclusive deals and promotions throughout the winter. These include everything from free season pass holder barbecues to savings in retail and on-mountain restaurants.

“We plan on communicating our pass holder deals just before they happen at the beginning of each month throughout the season,” Curtain adds.

Mount Washington’s season pass lineup is varied and offers something for every type of snow slider. If you want it all, then the Gold Pass is for you. For visitors to the popular Nordic Centre, season passes are very affordable for cross-country skiers and snowshoers.



Back in the alpine, the Alpine Pass is your no-frills, seven-days-a-week option. The Midweek Pass offers value for those looking to ride during non-peak periods. Deeper discounts exist with the Student Pass, and Super Seniors who are 75+ get their pass for free.

Kids who are never-ever, first-time skiers and boarders get the best deal. The Rookie Year pass combines an unlimited season pass, unlimited ski or snowboard rentals, plus unlimited afternoon group lessons in Mountain Kids, all season long. The Graduate Pass is another great deal available to all kids who graduated from the Rookie Year. The Graduate includes unlimited skiing and rentals for the entire winter season.

Go to to discover the additional savings with family discounts and to find out more on Mount Washington’s new 100-Day Winter Assurance for all season pass holders.

The time is definitely now to get your season pass. Purchase online through the MyMW store, visit the Season Pass office at the mountain or stop by one of the Island locations during the Season Pass Roadshow this month.
