The Welcome Pass is given by participating shops, catalogs, and internet retailers to new skiers who purchase any new skate or stride ski package. The Welcome Pass is good for three FREE visits to any of our participating ski areas. Your Pass will be punched at the ticket counter of the ski area with each visit. The Welcome Pass is non-transferable. The value of the redemption is the price of a trail pass from the redeeming ski center. You may be asked to show your new ski equipment at the ski area. We look forward to welcoming you to our ski centers. Have fun on our trails!
