NEWRY, MAINE — In less than two days Sugarloaf, Sunday River, and Loon Mountain will end their annual spring sale for the New England Pass, good for skiing and riding at all three resorts during the 2011/2012 season. Deadline for the spring pass sale is tomorrow, Saturday, April 30 and passes can be purchased online or over the phone.

With the new payment plan, guests can pay just $50 at the time of purchase to lock-in the spring-sale pricing, and then complete the purchase in four equal, automatic installments on June 1, July 1, August, 1, and September 1. The payment plan option is available for phone, mail, or in-person purchases only, through April 30.

This year’s pass features a new and improved payment plan for guests only available to those who purchase their passes before the April 30 deadline. Come Sunday, the New England Pass will still be available to purchase but prices will be higher and the payment plan will not be available.

Also new for the 2011/2012 season, the three resorts will offer a “Graduate Pass.” Any recent college graduate who had a 2010/11 New England College Pass is eligible to purchase the Graduate Pass, which offers unlimited skiing and riding at all three mountains, at a lower rate than the standard adult Gold New England Pass.

With prices starting at $369 for access to a combined total of 337 trails; 1,960 acres; 16 terrain parks; and 6 halfpipes; all served by 43 lifts, the New England Pass is the best value in the Northeast.

Each New England Pass also includes free or discounted skiing/riding at Boyne Resorts’ Western mountains, including Big Sky, MT., Brighton, UT., Crystal Mountain, WA., Cypress Mountain, British Columbia; Boyne Mountain, MI., Boyne Highlands, MI., and The Summit at Snoqualmie, WA.

The three levels of the New England Pass available for purchase include:

-The Bronze New England Pass, available for $369, is an all-ages season pass that includes midweek, non-holiday access to all three resorts.

-The Silver New England Pass, available for $629 for adults (ages 19-64), offers access every day of the season excluding 13 black-out dates.

-The Gold New England Pass, available for $949 for adults (ages 19-64), offers unrestricted access to all three resorts for the 2011/2012 season.

-Senior (65 and older), teen (ages 13-18), and junior (ages 6-12) versions of the Gold and Silver pass are also available for purchase. Gold passes are also available for children 5 and under and seniors 80 plus.

-The College New England Pass is available for $349 for full-time college students and includes unlimited skiing/riding at all three resorts for the 2011/2012 season and is on sale at this low price until November 30, 2011.
