On Saturday, officials from the Sugarbush and Mad River Glen resorts held a news conference in Warren to announce what is being described as the first partnership in the 54 years since Sugarbush opened just south of Mad River Glen, then a decade old.
Five years after Sugarbush opened, the Glen Ellen resort opened on the same stretch of mountains above the Mad River Valley. Sugarbush and Glen Ellen merged in 1979.
Officials announced cooperation agreements to give skiers access to all three mountains, along with other amenities.
They said the ‘‘Ski The Valley Plus’’ ticket is available to skiers who book extended ski-and-stay packages. It includes unrestricted access to all three mountains along with extras at theaters, restaurants and shops throughout the Mad River Valley.
There’s also a new ‘‘Threesome College Pass’’ that gives full-time college students unrestricted access to Mad River Glen as well as Sugarbush’s Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen.MORE IN National / World BusinessNEW YORK — Wal-Mart is replacing the chief of its U.S. Full Story
