“Our pricing and programs really focus on families,” said Johnston. “The discounts on daycare, tubing and rentals plus the super low pass prices for kids and teens means the whole family can afford to spend the day on the Mountain.”

Lest anyone thinks the skiing and snowboarding is only beginner focused Johnston reminds readers that the value for the terrain is huge. “Compared to resorts of similar size, with similar terrain and snowfall our pass and ticket prices are the best deal around,” he said. “We received more than 30 feet of snow last season, we have more than 3,600 acres of lift served terrain and one of the longest seasons in North America.”
