NEWBURY, New Hampdshire — The NH College Breakout Pass has a new look for 2008-2009, but remains the best college season pass deal in New England. For only $239 full-time college students can enjoy unlimited skiing and riding with no date restrictions at Mount Sunapee, Gunstock and Wildcat resorts. Wildcat has teamed up with Mount Sunapee and Gunstock, which gives the NH College Breakout Pass even more skiing and riding for 2008-2009.
Wildcat offers a classic New England big mountain experience with over 2,100 feet of vertical, 47 trails and 4 lifts. Rated with the best scenery in the East by SKI Magazine, Wildcat’s proximity to Mt. Washington and elevation contributes to an average 200 inches of natural snow annually and a long season.
Gunstock offers the longest day at a big mountain in New Hampshire with night skiing and riding Tuesday through Saturday. The mountain boasts 51 trails, 7 lifts and 2 terrain parks. The views off the summit of Lake Winnipesaukee and Mt. Washington are spectacular.
Mount Sunapee with 65 trails and 10 lifts is consistently ranked with the best snow surfaces in the East by SKI Magazine. Choose from three terrain parks including The SoBe Freeride Zone with a 4,000 watt sound system and its own dedicated triple chairlift.
All three resorts offer over 6,000 foot long base-to-summit high-speed quad chairlifts that whisk riders to the summit in just 6 minutes.
Not only does the NH College Breakout Pass offer a wide variety of skiing and riding, it offers the most accessible big mountain skiing and riding in New England. Mount Sunapee (1,510 vertical) and Gunstock (1,400 vertical) are less than two hours from Boston minimizing travel time and expense.
One low price of $239 until December 24, 2008 gives full-time college students 163 trails and 677 acres of terrain to explore at three of New Hampshire’s most popular winter resorts.
The NH Breakout Pass is available to full-time college students only. A valid picture college identification and an original signed letter from the Registrar’s Office (embossed with the school seal) stating full-time status through spring 2009 must be presented before a pass will be issued.
