With the Dec. 7 storm and more expected earlier this week, officials at the Arizona Snowbowl are very excited and currently preparing the mountain for an opening soon.

The Season Pass office is open Tuesday through Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., for season pass pictures and picking up your pass. Get your pass early and avoid the lines.

Peaks Card

The new Peaks Card is for the skier and snowboarder who wants to ride at Snowbowl only a few days each season, but cannot commit to a season pass. This card is valid for any five days of the 2009-2010 season.

The cost of the Peaks Card is $50, but you receive your first day for free. Then you receive daily discounts, with up to four more visits. Midweek (Monday through Friday) you receive $10 off an adult all-day lift ticket, weekends/holidays are $5 off.

The Peaks Card is only available for adults (ages 13-64). The Peaks Card can be used once per day and is non-transferable. Only one Peaks Card per person, per season. The only blackout dates are Dec. 26, 2009 through Jan. 3, 2010.

Purchase your card online at the Arizona Snowbowl Web site. The first time you visit Snowbowl, stop at the Guest Services office, located in the lower level of the Hart Prairie Lodge, to have your picture taken. You will be given you Peaks Card and your first free lift ticket.

Each visit thereafter, simply present your Peaks Card and a photo ID to any ticket window and receive your discounted lift ticket.

The Peaks Card makes a great Christmas or birthday gift. Get yours today and enjoy riding for less this season at the Arizona Snowbowl.

This is a limited time offer — the Peaks Card available only until Dec. 24, 2009.
