Mount Snow Celebrates Spring With The New Vernal Eternal Spring Pass And Six Weeks Of Events, Parties, Festivals and Deals

February 22, 2012

Mount Snow in southern Vermont is presenting a six week Vernal Eternal celebration which includes a brand new spring pass and a jam packed calendar of events that includes festivals, parties, freestyle events, live music and lift ticket deals starting February 26 all the way through the end of the season.

Many snow sports enthusiasts wait until the month of March to head to the mountains because that is when the sun is higher in the sky, the snowfall is traditionally ample and the après ski scene gets kicked up a notch which is a big reason why the resort has come out with the new Vernal Eternal Spring Pass.

The Vernal Eternal Spring Pass provides unlimited access to skiing and riding at Mount Snow every day starting February 26 through the end of the ski season for $299. The pass is available for purchase online starting Saturday, February 25 and will be available for purchase at the resort starting Sunday, February 26. With huge annual events planned along with some new events that have been added to the schedule, the last six weeks of the ski season are simply loaded with reasons to visit the mountain.

“We pride ourselves in throwing the best parties, events and festivals around”, says events manager, Tim Dolan. “Starting with our Mardi Gras celebration the last weekend of February, all the way through to the Winter Brewer’s Festival on Easter Weekend, our guests know that springtime is event time here at Mount Snow.”
