Ski Vermont’s Mount Snow for $12

West Dover, VT – Mount Snow first opened for skiing on December 12, 1954 and has since enjoyed one of the most colorful and interesting histories of any resort in the ski industry thanks in large part to the resort’s visionary founder, Walter Schoenknecht.

To celebrate that history, Mount Snow has announced that December 12 will be known as Founders Day and skiers and riders can take advantage of $12 advance purchase lift tickets, plus a party in Cuzzins Bar and Grill, birthday cake and a display of memorabilia from its storied past. Lift tickets must be purchased online at least 48 hours before the day of the event to get the special price and there is a limited quantity of 1,000 tickets available at that rate, but there will be a discounted rate at the lift ticket window for those that missed out on the advance purchase price.

“We are so lucky to be part of a resort that is so steeped in skiing history it only made sense to make Mount Snow’s birthday an annual celebration,” said Director of Marketing and Events, Matt Gebo. “We’re planning to throw a party that would have made Walt proud while offering our guests a great deal to come celebrate with us.”
