FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mt. Baldy, BC (Wednesday, July 17 2019)
What’s a better experience than learning the thrills of playing on the mountain with your friends and enjoying a lifetime of laughter and love on the slopes? Passing that love for the sport and lifestyle on to your kids! For the 2019/2020 season Baldy Mountain Resort will be launching a brand-new Parent Pass option, the first ski area in the Okanagan to do so, AND a new Baldy Mt Family Pass.
“People have asked what the best ski day of my life was, and the answer isn’t that big pow day, or the time I landed that huge drop,” explained Marketing Coordinator Andrew Zwicker. “It’s the 2 days I first introduced my sons to the sport I love. Seeing their faces light up as they slid down through the fresh mountain air, and the endless family fun since were by far the best two days I’ve had on the mountain.”
When we looked at the data, we noticed a real decline in season pass holders for folks with young families. We know well ourselves the challenges, time, financial and other pressures parents of young kids face and so we wanted to do something to specifically help those parents with kids 12 and under to still get up to the mountain, and even better, introduce their kids to the mountain at an early age.
“With a kid of my own on the way, I can personally understand the needs young families are facing,” added General Manager Andy Foster. “We want to make sure Baldy is accessible for all ages, and are specifically looking to welcome parents and their young kids this year.”
For the 2019/20 Baldy Mountain Resort will be launching The Okanagan’s first Parent Pass. The basic gist? Parents of young kids rarely have the opportunity to get out and ski together. Someone has to watch the kids right? With the Baldy Mt. Parent Pass, 2 parents with children 12 and under can share one season pass for far less than the cost of buying 2 seasons passes. 2 Adult Season Passes at our early bird rate for 2019-2020 would cost $778. The Early Bird Parent Pass will be just $583. Nearly $200 in savings…That’s a lot of diapers.
It’s not just parents of young families we’re looking after though. We’re also bringing back the Family Pass. Families of all shapes and sizes were at least one adult will get 15% off their season passes at Baldy this season. Family Passes start as low as $380 for a family of 3. Special offers on season long rentals are also being offered this year to make the experience that much more affordable.
Early Bird Season Passes including the New Parent Pass are only available until July 31st.
