You run through the mental checklist; boots are still good, bindings are fine, I need a new beanie, and I hope that $20 bill is still in my snow pants. Life is good, until, “My pass!? I didn’t buy a pass yet!” As you stop mid-doodle, your mind wanders to all your favorite resorts and days on the hill. Where should you buy your pass this season?

The Strattitude Pass has no blackout dates, allowing you to ride whenever you want, or whenever you can convince your friend with a car into a ride.

Stratton Lodging Hot tubs and Pools


Stratton has a place to stay. With multiple lodging options just a short walk from the lifts, it’s the perfect campus getaway you’re looking for. With your Strattitude season pass, you can save on lodging in select Stratton properties, which means no need to drive after a long day of sending it, or a night out in the Village.

Bring the Friends and Family

The Strattitude Season Pass isn’t just for college kids either. The pass ranges from age 13 to 29, to allow your friends and family members to join you on ride days and weekends. Grab a pass for your younger, or older sibling, and ride together all winter break while you’re home from campus.

Beyond that, every Strattitude season pass comes preloaded with 2 single-day Friends and Family lift tickets. These are any time lift tickets to share with others at 25% off daily window rates, that come preloaded on your Strattitude Pass. Even if you’re friends can’t afford a full season pass, you can still save the day by saving them some cash on a daily lift ticket to come ski or ride.

Stratton chairlifts

6 Packs, But We’re Not Talking Beer.

Stratton is home to one of the best uphill capacities in the east. Moving 33,928 skiers/riders up the mountain per hour, Stratton is home to some serious uphill power. With an 8 person gondola, and four 6 person chairlifts, it’s easy to stay with your crew all day long. No more splitting up into different chairs, and breaking up the party. With the no blackout day lift access offered by the Strattitude Pass, never miss a joke or a good time on the lift again with the 8 person gondola and multiple 6 person chairlifts.

Apres Ski at Stratton Resort


There is only one way to end the day, and it’s with a solid après. The Stratton Village is home to some of the best apres to talk about your day, brag about your boardslide, or check out photos from the fire tower hike. Whether it’s live music at Grizzlys, dinner at Mulligan’s, a draft at Bar 802, or the afterparty at Green Door Pub, there is an event to keep the vibes high all night. When the apres is over, walk back to your room at the Black Bear Lodge, get a good night’s sleep, and get ready to do it all over again with unlimited days on your Strattitude Pass.

Still on the fence? Recently voted as a top 20 east coast resort, take it from others, there are just so many reasons to ride at Stratton and experiences to be had. From great terrain parks to renowned groomers, deep glades, and a famous Village to back it all up, there is no other pass like the Strattitude Pass to bring you value and rank as the best college season pass in New England. Every pass comes with Adventure Assurance, giving you the option to defer your unused season pass, no questions asked, to 22/23 in case something comes up. So go ahead. Lock in the winter of your life.
