(Press Release)

(Teton Village, WY. July 23, 2013) Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) announced today the 2014 Grand Pass® will be available starting on August 1st. New this winter, the Grand Pass® is smarter than ever, with direct to lift access technology built into the pass. JHMR has integrated advanced RFID lift ticket technology so passholders can access the slopes faster and with fewer hassles. With this new system, guests pass through the lift gates, which will recognize the Grand Pass® and open the lift access gate automatically. No more fumbling around looking for your pass to get scanned. With Resort Charge capabilities linking a credit card to the Grand Pass®, guests no longer have to carry cash at the mountain while receiving discounts at all mountain restaurants and retail outlets.

The added value of the Grand Pass® keeps growing with the Mountain Collective™, providing Grand Passholders access to six leading ski destinations. The Mountain Collective™ has added three premier independent ski resorts to its roster of resorts for the 2013-2014 winter season. Mammoth Mountain, Snowbird and Whistler Blackcomb join original members Alta, Aspen/Snowmass, Jackson Hole and Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows in this unprecedented collaboration of resorts. Grand Passholders enjoy unlimited 50% off lift tickets at all of these locations and exclusive lodging deals throughout the winter season.

The Adult Grand Pass offers unlimited skiing and riding for a scheduled 130 day season with no restrictions for $1275. The Senior Grand Pass will be offered for $879. The Grand Pass® also offers attainable options for youths, providing unlimited access to the next generation of skiers and riders. The Junior Grand Pass for ages 6-14 will be $170, the Student Grand Pass for ages 15-18 will be $299, and kids under 6 ski for free.

All Grand Passes® include a free START bus pass, complimentary summer Aerial Tram access, discounted Bike Park pass, discounts at JHMR restaurants, retail and rental stores, as well as complimentary Jackson Hole Ski Club membership.

JHMR President Jerry Blann stated “Presently, there is great synergy and momentum in our resort community which makes this time of year exciting as we look ahead to winter. With three years under our belt, the Grand Pass® programs continue to be the best received products in the history of JHMR passes. We are glad to be able to continue to offer this level of unrestricted access for less than $10 a day, and provide added value with the Mountain Collective™.”
