Ascutney Mountain Resort
3rd Grade Pass Program
Each third-grade student in Vermont and New Hampshire is eligible for this free unlimited season pass. Principals in all elementary schools will receive information packets for students to bring home for their parents to sign. The students will then bring the packets back to their principals, who will return the lists to the resort.
This pass from Bolton Valley allows skiers unlimited weekday and night skiing. If bought in a group of five or more, each Smart Pass costs $179 per person. If bought in a group of less than five, each pass is $199 per person. You can also upgrade your pass to include any single weekend or holiday for only $20.
Cost: $179 (if bought in group of five or more passes), $199 (if bought individually or up to four passes)
Restrictions: Only valid weekdays and nights; holidays are not included in the weekday pass.
College Season Pass
To sign up for this great college pass, students need documentation from their registrar's office. It's worth it, though: there are no blackout dates. After Dec. 10, the price goes up to $359.
Deadline: December 10
Midweek Super Pass
This is another solid deal, especially for people who don't mind taking the day off from work or school. With it, you can ski unlimited weekdays minus holidays for the entire season. The price increased $150 on September 15.
Restriction: not valid on weekends or holidays
