Nov. 19, 2012. Winter’s off to an early start in Dixie. With two North Carolina Ski Areas making their mark by opening on October 31, sales in the South’s winter markets are up; a boost to an otherwise slow economic time of year in the North Carolina mountains.
Gold Card sales are no exception. Going fast, thirty North Carolina Ski Areas Association Gold Cards remain for sale for the 2012-13 winter season. Typically, gold cards sell out by mid-December. But, when winter comes early, passes can sell out as early as Thanksgiving.
With the purchase of a NCSAA Gold Card, skiers and riders can take their pick of where and when to ski or ride in North Carolina. The Gold Card gives skiers and riders access to each of the six North Carolina ski areas throughout the winter season regardless of holiday or weekend rates. That means unrestricted slope access to Cataloochee Ski Area, Sapphire Valley Ski Area, Beech Mountain Resort, Appalachian Ski Mtn., Wolf Ridge Ski Resort, and Sugar Mountain Resort.
The exclusive pass is limited to 100 pass holders per season and is available for $800 each. Purchase now, they’re almost gone. For more information or to purchase a Gold Card, please visit www.goskinc.com/goldcard. Or call 828-898-4521 any day from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
