We are thrilled to announce its partnership with Uphill New England to create the first ever multi-ski resort uphill pass.
Uphilling - the use of alpine touring equipment for uphill travel at ski resorts - exploded in popularity during the pandemic and continues to grow. Uphill New England formed to ensure access to uphilling by helping ski resorts responsibly manage this growth.
Guests who purchase the multi-ski resort pass get streamlined access to 12+ ski resorts across New England. The pass also includes access to a mobile app which provides guests with a digital check-in system, vertical stat tracking, mountain status updates, access to unique promotions, and a community of like-minded uphillers.
By joining the pass we hope to add a new and unique offering to our guests. And as one one of the first resorts to join, it positions Big Moose Mountain as a leader in uphill access. The coalition of participating resorts collaborate with Uphill New England to design uphill policies and norms that ensure a safe, responsible, and sustainable culture of uphilling in the region.
