>SKYKOMISH, Wash. - Looking forward to the upcoming 05-06 season, Stevens Pass Winter Resort announced today plans for its Spring Season Pass Sale on April 1-30. Stevens will be honoring last year's spring prices on all 05-06 season passes purchased next month. In addition, the resort will be offering value-added benefits for 04-05 pass holders who renew for the 05-06 season during the April sale.
"Given the low snowfall last season, our groomers did an incredible job of providing 40 days of great skiing and snowboarding," said Stevens Pass General Manager John Gifford. "History shows that we never have experienced two poor snow years in a row. That's good news for everyone already looking forward to next season, including all of us here at Stevens."
Stevens Pass is offering an "added value benefit" based on the amount paid by a 04-05 season pass holder. The benefit will be awarded to 04-05 pass holders who renew their passes for the 05-06 season. It can be used in any of the Stevens Pass restaurants and retail stores, as well as the Stevens Pass Ski & Snowboard School or rental shop. The added value benefit can also be used to purchase lift tickets for friends or family next season.
Stevens Pass offers a wide variety of season-pass products, sold at a range of prices based on when skiers or riders prefer to visit the mountain. The added value benefit will be awarded based on the purchase price of the 04-05 season pass product. For example, pass holders who last season paid $199 to $319 for a season pass will receive an added value benefit of $50. Those who paid $329 to $499 for an 04-05 pass will receive $75 in added value benefit, while guests who bought passes for $519 to $809 will receive $110.
"We value our guests tremendously and want to do something for those who didn't get to ski or ride as much as they wanted," added Gifford. "It's our way of saying thanks to all our loyal guests, especially our season pass holders."
The Stevens Pass added value benefit will only be offered with season passes renewed between April 1-30, 2005. Season passes are available for purchase on the Stevens Pass Web site at www.stevenspass.com, by phone at (206) 812-4510 or at the guest relations desk at the Stevens Pass Granite Peaks Lodge from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
