West Virginia Ski Areas Offer 2011/12 Mountain Pass

Charleston, WV – All of West Virginia’s ski resorts are preparing to open for the upcoming season including Canaan Valley and Timberline in Tucker County, Snowshoe in Pocahontas County and Winterplace in Raleigh County. Again this year the resorts are offering a Mountain Pass that allows everyone to enjoy skiing and snowboarding at all of the state’s resorts.

The Mountain Pass is a booklet of tickets that includes 30 vouchers for skiing or snowboarding at Timberline, Snowshoe, Canaan Valley and Winterplace and 10 vouchers at the state’s nordic areas. Each voucher (140 total) is for one visit (or lift ticket) and can be used anytime during the 2011/2012 season which traditionally gets underway around Thanksgiving.

A West Virginia Ski Areas Association Mountain Pass costs $2400. “The pass provides a family or company a chance to enjoy the whole state during the winter season,” says Terry Pfeiffer, President of Winterplace Ski Resort and the West Virginia Ski Areas Association. “It really is perfect for a company to use as an incentive for its employees to enjoy fun in the outdoors during winter.” Anyone interested in obtaining a WVSAA Mountain Pass can call the association at 304-720-5471.
