Being a season pass holder at your favorite resort is a lot like being in an exclusive club. You get discounts, the satisfaction of belonging, and even the occassional high-five from a fellow member. When New Hampshire skiers and riders join the Powder Pass Club at Pats Peak, (that's a mouthful) they get discounts on a lot more than just skiing and riding. Their loyalty to the club is honored throughout the community at shops and businesses and for an even bigger feeling of reward, early bird purchasers can save themselves even more by joining the club before Nov. 4.

Prices for passes bought on or before Nov. 4 are $529 for Adults (18-64) and $429 for Juniors (6-17) and Seniors (65+).

As if unlimited skiing, snowboarding AND tubing weren't enough, this pass includes discounts of 10-50 percent off at other fine southern New Hampshire establishments. Have you heard of Waterville Valley Ski Area? Powder Pass Club members receive half off midweek lift tickets and the list of discounts goes on from there to include a host of restaurants, sport shops and even fitness clubs and local gyms.

This isn't to say there aren't benefits to enjoy right at Pats Peak. When pass holders get hungry, they save 20 percent on all food in the Cafeteria. When they need some extra layers or new equipment, they save 20 percent in the Finish Line Ski & Board Shop. When they need to store they're smelly gloves or a dufflebag, seasonal locker rentals are 20 percent off, no questions asked.
