-New All-Holiday Pass Option for “Blacked Out” Pass Holders from Other
October 6, 2011, Londonderry, VT- For skiers and riders left in the dark during the holidays after purchasing those “value” season pass offerings from other resorts which come with all-holiday black-out restrictions, Magic Mountain Ski Area has introduced a very affordable and exciting solution. The new Magic White-Out Pass(SM) gives “value” pass holders from other mountains the opportunity to ski Magic during every major holiday period for one low price.
“When others black you out, we welcome you to ski and ride here at Magic”, said Jim Sullivan, Magic Mountain’s president. “I think that those who do not ski here regularly will really enjoy the diversity and excitement of our legendary terrain as well as the friendly community of Magic skiers. You don’t have to forfeit Vermont holiday skiing to save money; come over to Magic and experience an authentic Vermont challenge at a place where you can kick back, relax and enjoy the holidays.”
The first-ever White-Out Pass(SM) allows unlimited skiing at Magic over Christmas/New Year’s week, Martin Luther King Weekend and President’s Week. Now on sale for only $249 at www.magicmtn.com/holidaywhiteout/ ,that’s up to 19 days of skiing southern Vermont’s most challenging mountain for less than $15 a day-a great value which recognizes the economic realities facing today’s ski families. When skiers choose another resort’s “value” season pass, with no access allowed during high-traffic vacation dates, adding Magic’s White-Out Pass in combination with it can still save them hundreds of dollars over other resorts’ standard (no restrictions) season pass rates.
Plus, adding the White-Out Pass is a great change-of-pace from having to ski the same mountain all-year round. Magic over the holidays is a uniquely exciting and original ski experience. Magic’s 1960s-style Vermont trails, steep expert runs, exciting off-piste tree-skiing, and laid-back ski vibe will be a refreshing change from the crowds and corporate experience of many of today’s large resorts.
If White-Out pass holders catch the spirit of Magic’s skiing-first culture and want to do it year-round, Magic’s season passes never black out holiday periods yet are still significantly less than half the cost of nearby resorts. This makes Magic the best value for the most challenging ski experience in nearby southern Vermont.
About Magic Mountain Ski Area
Magic first opened in 1960 and will be celebrating this season its 50th anniversary of peak to bottom skiing dating from 1962, which to this day, is still one of the most exciting, challenging and authentic Vermont ski experiences. Different than the corporate resorts, Magic has stayed true to the original Vermont ski culture. Magic skiers enjoy a mountain emphasizing natural, diverse ski terrain in an atmosphere of shared camaraderie for the sport both on the slopes and in the lodge after a long, rewarding day. Magic has an authentic vibe because, in reality, it still remains first and foremost a ski area, not a “resort”-and a distinctly Vermont one at that. It’s a community spirit that keeps Magic thriving for those committed ski and riding enthusiasts who want to “carve their own trail” and experience real snow and obstacles that mother-nature puts on the hill. And, it’s why Magic skiers love the mountain so much that they are personally investing in the ski area via The Magic Partnership in order to enhance and preserve it for future generations to enjoy.
