Cindy Dady, Echo Mountain general manager, shares the impact these fires have had: “We’ve had employees, season pass holders and daily customers affected by this tragedy and want to help those people out. When disasters like this hit so close to home, it really takes a toll.  We’ve got a special, unique opportunity to contribute to the relief efforts.”

The season passes sell for $159 at retail and are not yet available to the public. The 2012-2013 Echo Mountain season pass includes three days of skiing at the partner resorts of Ski Cooper, Sunlight, and Powderhorn. Buyers also get two $25 buddy passes added to their season pass for a limited time only.

Echo Mountain will be collecting cash donations at the mountain throughout the remainder of this season.
