SUGARBUSH, VT. (August 22, 2012) – Earlier this week, Sugarbush Resort began its fall season pass campaign, launching sales of 2012-2013 season passes at their lowest available prices through September 12th.

Sugarbush continues to offer four standard passes – the All-Mountain Pass for unlimited skiing and riding at Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen; the Mt. Ellen Pass; the Mt. Ellen Plus Pass; and the Fancy Pass.

New this year, Sugarbush and neighboring Mad River Glen are unveiling the Threesome College Pass for only $359 through Nov. 7, 2012. With unlimited skiing and riding at Sugarbush’s Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen, and unlimited skiing at Mad River Glen, the pass offers college students affordable access to the unrivaled terrain of the three mountains of the Mad River Valley.

Sugarbush is also returning with their ultra-affordable season pass option for skiers and snowboarders between the ages of 19-29. Known as the “For20s Pass,” the option provides unlimited skiing at both Lincoln Peak and Mt. Ellen for only $319 if purchased by Sept. 12, 2012. Purchasers of the For20s Pass can also opt to “Add Mad” for an additional $80, which gains them midweek access to neighboring Mad River Glen.
