College students have extra incentive to keep their credits up this season thanks to [R107R, Alpine Meadows], [R209, Kirkwood] and Homewood resorts teaming up to offer the Triple Threat College Pass.

The Triple Threat is a three-resort pass for as low as $199. It's offered in both Limited and Unlimited pass options. Students can choose the $199 Limited Triple Threat, which is valid Monday through Friday, or the $329 Unlimited Triple Threat pass, which is valid daily. Both passes hold blackout dates at each resort. Early-purchase prices are available through December 13, 2011. 

In addition, the Triple Threat Unlimited pass offers added resort benefits, including 10 percent off dining and retail savings, two-for-one private instruction at Alpine Meadows, and two complimentary Kirkwood buddy tickets valid on or before December 25, 2011. Up to four discounted buddy tickets may also be purchased per day. Kirkwood offers a 20 percent retail savings bonus. All Triple Threat pass holders receive a $25 dining credit at Homewood's West Shore Café & Inn.

"With 5,900 acres of some of the country's most prized terrain, nine terrain parks, and famously deep powder, the Triple Threat offers unlimited terrain options as well as a superb value," said Deanna Gescheider, vice president of marketing and sales for JMA Sierra Ventures, LLC, parent company of Alpine Meadows and Homewood.

Students must produce a signed letter from their accredited two or four-year college or university school registrar, administration, or Dean stating they are enrolled full-time or are carrying the minimum of six credits or units. Students are required to bring a photo I.D. and college transcript when they pick up their purchased pass.
