2013-2014 Student Senate Ski Package

Each year area mountains are invited to submit ski-package proposals that are then voted on by Plymouth State students.  The winner for the 2013-2014 PSU Ski Package is with…Cannon Mountain!


What all PSU community members need to know:

  • Allowing another person to use their ID to obtain a lift ticket is a theft of service and violates PSU policies in addition to NH state laws.
  • The privilege of accessing the ski package will be immediately revoked for misuse of an ID and will remain in force for the entire season pending the outcome of a PSU judicial process.
  • Seizure of a student’s ID is a consequence of misrepresenting one’s identity, and students who do not claim their ID will be responsible for obtaining a new ID at the $25 rate in order to continue their meal plan or flex cash service.

Please be advised that you will NOT be admitted without the following:

  • Verification that your Name is on the PSU Undergraduate Student Ski Package List:     Check to see if you are on the list, PRIOR to heading to the mountain!  You can do this by logging into my.Plymouth, selecting the service tab at the top of the page, and the lists are under ‘General Resources’.  If you do not see your name on the list, and you’re currently enrolled in classes, contact Jenn White @ jlwhite@plymouth.edu.
