Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort announced today it will offer a free one-night stay at the Cliff Lodge, a free summer season Tram pass, a free Mountain School lesson and discount coupons to skiers and snowboarders who purchase season passes by July 31, 2002.

The Little Cottonwood Canyon resort with the longest ski and snowboard season in Utah also announced it will not raise day or season ticket prices for the 2002-03 season. Also new for the upcoming season is a $99 Student (K-12) Unlimited Season Pass when purchased in conjunction with an adult season pass (K-12 Unlimited Chair Season Pass is $199 when purchased separately).

“This is the earliest and most competitive season pass pricing Snowbird has offered in 30 years,” said Snowbird President Bob Bonar. “People can ski or ride Snowbird for as little as $29 a day and still get a free room at the Cliff, a lesson, a summer Tram season pass and discounts on merchandise.”

Snowbird’s Unlimited Season Pass sells for $899 with no restrictions and includes all of the “Early Bird Freebies” – one-night stay at the luxurious Cliff Lodge until Dec. 19, 2002; a free 2002 Summer Tram Pass; a free group Mountain School lesson to be used before Dec. 19, 2002; and a coupon book for an additional 10 percent off summer and winter merchandise at Snowbird Ultimate Mountain Outfitters until Oct. 31, 2002. The “Early Bird Freebies” also are included with the purchase of an Unlimited Chairs Season Pass ($799), the $299 Perfect 10 Chairlift Pass, the $399 College Student Unlimited Chairlift Pass as well as any of Snowbird’s Season Ticket Programs. $99 and $199 Student Pass purchasers receive all “Early Bird Freebies” but the night’s stay at the Cliff Lodge.
