The Ski Bum Pass

The first tier of Ski Bum Passes has sold out.

We are now at the second price tier and a limited number of Ski Bum Passes are on sale now for just $159. Once those sell out, more will be made available at a higher price. Once the next tier sells out there will be more at an even higher price. Get it? Limited quantities at increasing rates. Eventually, the price will max out at $269. Bottom line, the earlier you buy, the lower the price. Wait a few extra days to purchase and risk the price going up if we sell out.

Not good enough? Purchase now and if you don't already have a season pass for this year, you can ski the rest of this season for FREE with your 2015-16 Ski Bum Pass. True story. As many days, as many runs and as many face shots as you can possibly muster. All possible just 30 minutes from Burlington. 

The Ski Bum Pass is valid every day that Bolton Valley is open for skiing and riding from the time of purchase through the end of the 2015-16 Season with no blackout dates. The pass is for anyone age 18-25 and full time college students who fall outside the age restrictions. Pass holder age is determined by your age on 12/1/15.
