The Freedom Pass Is Now Free

The Pass Unites Thirteen Ski and Snowboard Areas From Alaska to Maine

BOLTON VALLEY, VT (9/23/2016) -

Big changes are in store for the Freedom Pass. The pass is now free for all season pass holders at partner mountains and the number of partner mountains has more than doubled from last season.

The Freedom Pass was created two seasons ago with the goal of offering flexibility and added value to pass holders at six New England ski and snowboard areas. There was a $50 additional charge for each pass holder to upgrade to the Freedom Pass. This year the up-charge has been dropped and the number of partner mountains has increased to thirteen, spanning the country from Alaska to Maine.

The concept is simple. Pass holders at participating mountains are now able to get three complimentary lift tickets at each partner mountain this season. There is no additional charge so all full pass holders at each partner mountain are automatically part of the Freedom Pass. Pass holders simply take their pass to a partner mountain to receive a complimentary lift ticket for the day. There is a limit of one ticket per pass holder, per day and a limit of three tickets per pass holder at each partner mountain over the season.

“We feel the new format adds a tremendous amount of value for our pass holders” said Josh Arneson, VP of Sales and Marketing at Bolton Valley. “By eliminating the additional charge, and doubling the number of mountains involved, all pass holders at our partner mountains will now have even greater flexibility. Some may even elect to take a trip to an area on the other side of the country, knowing they will have complimentary lift tickets when they get there.”

Participating mountains include Black Mountain, NH; Bolton Valley, VT; Dartmouth Skiway, NH; Eaglecrest AK; Granite Gorge, NH; Lost Valley, ME; Magic Mountain, VT; McIntyre Ski Area, NH; Mount Bohemia, MI; Pajarito Mountain, NM; Plattekill Mountain, NY; Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort, NM and Ski Cooper, CO.

Bolton Valley All Access Season Passes, with the complimentary Freedom Pass upgrade, are currently on sale at a discounted price through September 30. More details can be found at
