New Cali4nia Season Pass Provides Unrestricted Access to
Bear Mountain, Snow Summit and June Mountain
California’s ski/snowboard season is less than
two months away and there’s already major news coming out of the mountains.
Officials at Mammoth Mountain and Bear Mountain/ Snow Summit announced a new
joint pass that will provide unrestricted, season-long access to Mammoth
Mountain, Bear Mountain, Snow Summit and June Mountains.
“This is all about providing the best value we can to
California skiers and snowboarders,” said Rusty Gregory, CEO of Mammoth Mountain.
“The Cali4nia Pass cuts through the clutter. It is far and away the best
product for California skiers and riders, as it allows you to ski when you want
and where you want,” said Gregory.
“This new pass will offer Southern California skiers and
snowboarders the best of both worlds; the convenience of Big Bear,
plus the big-mountain experience of Mammoth,” says Chris Riddle VP
of Marketing at Big Bear Mountain Resorts. “We are extremely happy to announce
this unprecedented partnership which will provide a versatile Season Pass
option that will first be available at Hot Dawgz and Hand Rails, our winter
kickoff party at Bear Mountain on September 27.”
The pass went on sale September 27th at
a preseason price of $689 for a limited time. Mammoth MVP pass holders who've already renewed for the upcoming season will automatically be upgraded. Current
Bear Mountain/ Snow Summit 2014-15 winter pass holders will have the
opportunity to upgrade to the new Cali4nia Pass.
