Ski Day / Ski Passes
With temperatures peaking in the negative degrees and towering snow drifts PSU keeps the fun alive in the winter. Each year in mid-February classes are cancelled and students are given free passes to Waterville Valley. It’s a full day of skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, tubing, fat-biking, and more including a cookout at the lodge with live music. Plymouth State University provides round-trip transportation during the day.
Each year area mountains place bids for a contract with Plymouth State. Students vote on which mountain they prefer and then get huge discounts for the season; I’m talking $5 lift tickets and $15 rentals! You can’t find a better deal anywhere else. If you’ve never skied or snowboarded before then this is the perfect opportunity because lessons are greatly discounted as well.
