A consistent trend is developing in the Alpine Ski Industry; year after year, the cost of participating in this amazing sport is on the rise. Headlines usually focus on how the cost of Alpine Skiing has grown to an unreachable price, and that the sport just isn’t accessible anymore. These are the pillars that we focused on when we set our prices for the 2016-17 Early Bird Season. Our message is clear – “Searchmont Resort is a growing family, and we want YOU to be a part of it. “. Searchmont Resort is making skiing accessible and affordable to all. From March 10th 2016, to April 11th 2016, we’ve set our Early Bird Pricing for 2016-17 Season passes with discounts of up to 35% off. Adult Season Passes start at $399, and Junior passes starting at $149. (for full pricing and details visit www.searchmont.com). Season Pass holder benefits include reciprocity agreements with Caberfae Peaks and Nub’s Nob, and we’re actively working to exponentially expand this list through the off-season and in to next season to include agreements with several local and out of town partners. While mother nature was not on our side this year, long-term forecasts predict a bounce-back La Nina year in 2017 , which to us means “Snowmageddon 2017” – we can’t wait! We have a lot planned for the offseason and fully intend to continue on with the amazing work started in last year’s off-season. As the 2016 season comes to a close, we want to thank the many businesses and individuals throughout Sault Ste. Marie, Searchmont, and all of Ontario and Michigan, that supported us through the season. Naturally we want to thank you, the public, for your ongoing support and dedication both to Searchmont Resort, and this amazing sport we love so much. We’re continually monitoring conditions for the remainder of the year, and we will do what we can to stretch it out as long as possible! 2016-17 Season Passes can be purchased online at www.Searchmont.com, by phone: 1-800-663-2546, or at the Searchmont Resort Customer Service Office. Don’t miss out on early bird pricing, we can’t wait to see you next year!
