WILMINGTON, New York — With Gore and Whiteface mountains now getting natural snow and making tons of their own, New York and New Jersey skiers and riders can capitalize on the good fortune that has befallen the Northern Adirondacks.

The Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA), managers of both resorts, is offering season pass holders in both states the opportunity to come north and enjoy outstanding conditions at reduced prices.

Just present your season pass from any New York or New Jersey resort for the 2006-07 season at a ticket counter at Gore or Whiteface and obtain one of our frequent skier cards for free.

The skier / rider, depending on their needs, will receive the Empire Card, the Student Card, the Snowball Card or combinations of the three at no up-front cost. All you have to do is present that card and enjoy these big mountain experiences at discounted prices.

The Empire Card (for adults) enables the guest to purchase a lift ticket for $12 off the weekend and holiday price and $16 off the mid-week, non-holiday price.

The Student Ski Card is geared toward teens 13-19 years old and college students taking 12 or more credit hours. Youngsters can carve turns for $35 any day of the season at either resort. To qualify, college students must show proof of credits by presenting their photo along with a current class schedule or a bursar bill.

The Snowball Card (juniors 7-12 years of age) allows the youth to buy a lift ticket for $27 at Whiteface and $20 at Gore any day of the season.

There are no blackout dates affecting these opportunities, and since the respective cards are issued free of charge, there are no free days of skiing attached to them.
