To add even more value to your Mt Ashwabay Season Pass, we've created reciprocity agreements with several area ski hills. Show your Mt Ashwabay Season Pass at partnering ski areas, and receive one complimentary Daily Ticket. Your 2015/2016 Season Pass will have punch spaces for these partnering areas to punch your pass when you redeem it at their ticket counter.
The exchange is a huge additional value, and a great way for our pass-holders to experience other ski areas. Mt Ashwabay Season Pass-holders will receive one complimentary Daily Ticket at the following ski areas:

Get geared up for winter with our Ski + Snowboard Swap held annually the first Saturday of November. The Swap offers a chance to trade-in, or trade-up, with 15% of the purchase price benefiting the Ashwabay Outdoor Educational Foundation. Cross-country, Downhill, and Snowboard equipment are all welcome.
How does the Swap work? Sellers determine prices for their gear, and a small 15% commission benefits the Ashwabay Outdoor Educational Foundation. Shoppers get great gear at great prices.
What should you bring to the Swap? We welcome equipment for Downhill Skiing, Snowboarding, Cross-Country Skiing, Telemark Skiing, Ice Skating & Hockey.
Please: New or gently used quality gear only. We reserve the right to reject outdated or unsafe equipment.
