“This winter, we looked at all of our pass products across the Northeast, including the offerings of our newest acquisition, Hunter Mountain,” stated Tim Boyd, CEO and president of Peak Resorts. “We felt the variety of each resort’s on-mountain experience, as well as the proximity of our resorts, makes the Peak Pass a unique and affordable product for the vast majority of skiers and riders in the Northeastern U.S.”
The top-level Explorer Pass features access to unlimited skiing and riding starting at $399 for youths aged seven to 17, and only $599 for adults, if purchased by April 30, 2016.
