How The East Was One: Peak Resorts Debuts 2019-20 Peak Pass

Same Great Pass, Same Great Price, Now With More Resorts

Company Release - 3/6/2019 8:00 AM ET

WILDWOOD, Mo., March 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Peak Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ:SKIS), a leading owner and operator of high-quality, individually branded U.S. ski resorts, today announced the debut of the Peak Pass – its popular multi-mountain season pass – for the 2019-20 season. All six Peak Pass options for the upcoming season are available for sale effective today, March 6, 2019.

The Peak Pass is “How The East Was One” thanks to its truly unlimited, multi-mountain access to Peak Resorts’ broad array of Northeast and Midwest resorts, all within reach of some of the country’s largest metropolitan areas, including Boston, New York, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and Cleveland. Peak’s destinations offer varied terrain, world-class snowmaking, expansive dining and retail offerings, and leading terrain parks, including the #1 and #2 parks in the East (Carinthia Parks at Mount Snow and Big Boulder Park). In addition, Peak Resorts prides itself in having some of the industry’s earliest opening days every season due to its ongoing commitment to state-of-the-art snowmaking upgrades.

“At a time when the value and complexity of multi-mountain season passes create more questions than answers for many skiers and riders, Peak Resorts is thrilled to announce that all of our Peak Pass offerings return for their fourth season with no price increases through the spring pricing window,” said Jesse Boyd, Vice President of Operations of Peak Resorts. “We believe our guests will appreciate the simplicity of our unlimited Peak Pass offerings, and that by keeping prices unchanged through April 30, we are ensuring that the Peak Pass remains the industry’s most compelling season pass value. Skiers and riders with a 2019-20 Peak Pass will have access to our resorts from Ohio to New Hampshire, including the newest resorts to join the Peak Resorts family – Liberty, Roundtop, and Whitetail – in Pennsylvania.

“We look forward to welcoming season passholders at Liberty, Roundtop, and Whitetail to the Peak Pass for the 2019-20 season and to building on three years of strong momentum while keeping our early season prices flat, all while offering more access to skiing and riding than ever before on our Peak Pass. Across our resort portfolio we have spent the past several years investing in new on- and off-mountain additions and improvements, terrain expansions, and advanced snowmaking capacity, all in an effort to deliver on our commitment to providing the best winter recreation experience for our guests. We look forward to closing on a strong 2018-19 ski season and soon thereafter welcoming returning and new Peak Passholders to our resorts for the 2019-20 season.”

Peak Payment Plan
Guests may purchase any Peak Pass outright or take advantage of Peak Resorts’ convenient $99-down payment plan during the spring pricing window.

Those purchasing a Peak Pass with a payment plan will also gain access to spring skiing and riding for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.

Peak Pass Protection Program
The Peak Pass returns for the 2019-20 season with the popular $40 Peak Pass Protection Program, which allows passholders to protect their ski season against injury, illness or relocation, which might keep them off the slopes. Now in its third year, the Peak Pass Protection Program’s $40 pricing makes it a valuable offering for skiers and riders of all ages.

Peak Pass Discount Dining
Discount Dining cards also return for the 2019-20 season. Peak Passholders can purchase cards with values of up to $500 for use at dining locations across all Peak Pass resorts. $100 cards include a $10 bonus credit, $250 cards include a $37.50 bonus credit and $500 cards include a $100 in bonus credit, making these offerings ideal for the whole family! Hurry, though, because the offer for discounted Dining Cards ends April 30, 2019.
