Now covered in a blanket of snowy goodness, winter is back in Mammoth Lakes, CA and opening day is just over two weeks away. To celebrate the 18-inches of fresh snow that fell over the past 24 hours, Mammoth Mountain is having a 24-hour season pass sale.

Purchase your season pass before midnight tonight, Oct. 23, 2012, and save $70 on your MVP season pass. The original cost is $799 until Nov. 11, but today only, you can lock in a season guaranteed with fun on the mountain for just $729.

As an added bonus, convince a friend to purchase a pass, and you’ll both be entered to win a luxury getaway with an approximate retail value of $3,000 as part of their MVP Refer-a-Friend Sweepstakes. Everyone that refers a friend will also receive a free t-shirt or retro beanie (while supplies last). To be entered to win, the pass must be purchased over the phone.
