XC Season Passes – Now Available at Stowe Mtn. Resort
With your club membership this year you will receive a new Stowe Nordic membership card which gets you a bunch of great discounts, including 40% off your season ski pass at Stowe Mountain Resort Cross-Country Center  (note that the new Epic Pass no longer includes access to the XC trails).
How to get your pass – there will no longer be a “list” at the Stowe Mountain Resort Pass Office, instead you will use your membership card plus a secondary ID such as a drivers license to get the discount.  The Stowe Mountain pass office (located in Spruce Camp lodge) is now ready to issue discounted passes to club members.
