Here's news for college students interested in majoring in snow.

Bretton Woods, Cannon Mountain, Cranmore Mountain Resort, and Waterville Valley have joined forces to offer the 4-NH College Pass for $289.

The pass is for full-time college students, and is good for skiing and riding anytime during the 2009-10 season at the four resorts. The price is good through Nov. 30.

The 4-NH College Pass will offer unlimited skiing and riding on 255 trails, 37 lifts, 1,061 acres and 13 terrain parks, making it the college season pass with the most skiing in New Hampshire.

Enterprising students can get a free or discounted pass by signing up classmates for the College Pass. Any student who  sells 15 passes to other college students gets a free pass; any student who sells 10 to 14 passes gets 50 percent off the price of his or her pass.

Students must show a current student ID plus proof of full-time enrollment (12 credits as of fall 2009) with a letter from the registrar's office or with a current college schedule print out, to qualify for the 4-NH College Pass.

The four areas are all within a 2.5-hour drive of Boston and other parts of Southern New England.
