Mammoth Mountain, CA – The countdown is on – - only a few days until the 2001/02 Mammoth Mountain Value Pass goes on sale. The special edition pass is only $399, a 75 percent savings off the regular season pass price, and is good for unlimited skiing and boarding throughout the 2001-2002 season and for spring riding beginning May 1 for the remainder of this season.

Built on the overwhelming success of last year’s Value Pass, picked up by more than 26,000 avid Mammoth fans, it offers tremendous savings with unlimited skiing and boarding, and the convenience of going directly to lifts, bypassing the ticket window.

Available April 1, 2001, the pass is priced at $399 for adults, $299 for teens (ages 13-18) and $199 for children (ages 7-12) and seniors (65 and over).

The $399 Pass pays for itself in only seven days of skiing or riding and allows access to Mammoth’s famous spring skiing at no additional cost. With Mammoth’s base depth of 9-10 feet, spring skiing will likely go through June. That’s a bonus month of Mammoth’s second season, voted the best spring skiing in the country by industry publications.
