Lift passes for the 2015/16 winter season at White Pine Ski Resort are now on sale. Priced at $280 for an adult (18-69 years old), pre-season lift purchases represent a 30% saving on the price of a season pass on opening day. The early discount continues through to August 31st. Student (13-18) and Senior (70+) season passes are $230.00, Junior (6-12) are $180.00 and child (5 and under) is $45.00.
To help promote the early discounts, White Pine Resort will be holding "Funday Sunday" on Sunday August 2nd at the resort, offering complimentary hamburgers and hot dogs. The lifts will be operating for mountain bike enthusiasts and hikers wanting to enjoy a free ride up to the top of Fortification Mountain and make their own way down. "Everyone is invited. This was so popular last year that we decided to repeat the Funday again this year," says co-owner Roy DeWitt. "It is going to a great weekend at White Pine with the Family Music Festival on Saturday August 1st."
The Family Music Festival offers entertainment from noon to 10pm with a mix of local and out-of-state bands. Kidís favorite is sure to be Alex and the Kaleidoscope featuring local celebrity Samatha Rice who will have kids and grandparents dancing to their fun action songs. A Bouncy House, face painting and crafts will all be set up adjacent to the lodge for the 2nd annual Childrenís Discovery Center fundraiser. Band line up also includes Sublette County stars Jared Rogerson and 6 Foot 2 as well as Utahís Rick Gerber Band. "As a member of a number of Salt Lake City supergroups, Rick Gerber has established himself as a crowd-pleasing, full-tilt rocker with a stage presence that canít be beat," promises the bandís promotional material. Tickets are Adult $30, Child $10, Family $75.
White Pine has tents, RV spaces and cabins available for rent for those wishing to stay overnight and make the most of the weekend.
Available again is the winter season pass cancellation waiver which provides a full refund to cover the unexpected incidences such as injuries or job transfer which would prevent use of the season pass. Priced at $10/person when purchased with a season pass, a full refund is available up until November 30th no questions asked.
White Pine Resort will also be offering ski rental season packages. "As parents of young children, we know how quickly our children outgrow their shoes, and at White Pine we want to cater to that need by making equipment changes available throughout the winter as part of the equipment package," says DeWitt. "We have a shipment of skis and snowboards arriving shortly for all age groups." Ski rental season packages start at $99.00.
And for those who are tired of lugging gear up to the mountain, White Pine will be offering a number of 6í ski lockers available for rent. Priced at $110 for the winter, it will mean somewhere to leave ski equipment safe but close to the lifts.
