Author thumbnail By M. Scott Smith, DCSki Editor

West Virginia ski areas have once again partnered to offer a statewide $2,400 “Mountain Pass,” which includes 30 vouchers each for skiing or snowboarding at alpine areas Timberline, Snowshoe, Canaan Valley, and Winterplace; and 10 vouchers each for West Virginia’s nordic areas, White Grass and Elk River Touring Centers. In total, the Mountain Pass includes 140 vouchers. Each voucher is valid for one visit or lift ticket and can be used anytime during the 2011-2012 winter season.

“The pass provides a family or company a chance to enjoy the whole state during the winter season,” said Terry Pfeiffer, President of Winterplace Resort and the West Virginia Ski Areas Association.

To purchase the pass, contact the West Virginia Ski Areas Association at 304-720-5471.

I know you're just the messenger. I'm having a hard time seeing how this is a good deal. Valuing the 10 cross-country vouchers at $25/ea (average of ERTC and Whitegrass day ticket with equipment), I get a cost of $71.60/ea for 30 downhill tickets, which is more expensive than weekend day rates for anything other than Snowshoe, and that's only for a 1-day walk-up ticket with no lodging involved.

I think it is a total of 140 vouchers so 30 for each alpine area, and 10 each for the nordic. This would be just over $17 for each voucher. Or am I wrong?

Joseph is right. Before publishing this story, I verified that 140 vouchers are included -- 30 for each alpine area. This works out to about $17 per voucher, which is a good value, if you're able to use a large number of the vouchers.

My math was right, but I read it as 30 vouchers good at any resort, not 30 per resort - that makes a big difference! Now we need a ski club to get enough people to put up the cash up front and buy one.
