LUDLOW, Vt. – It can be difficult for college students to stay focused as they pass the midway point of the fall semester. One way to beat the dreaded mid-semester slump is for students to reward themselves for their hard work as they strive for a high GPA. Okemo Mountain Resort has the solution with 4.0 The College Pass for full-time undergraduate and graduate students. Priced at just $379, plus tax, through December 15, 2015, this season pass provides unrestricted skiing and snowboarding at Okemo Mountain Resort, Killington Resort, Pico Mountain at Killington and Mount Sunapee Resort during the 2015/2016 season.

Added benefits for students purchasing their 4.0 The College Pass at Okemo include five 50-percent off college buddy tickets and, with this year's introduction of RFID ticketing, the convenience of direct-to-lift access for all passholders.

Okemo Mountain Resort plans a mid-November season opening with lifts running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. midweek and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekends and holiday periods. Killington Resort was the first resort in North America to open for the 2015/2016 season. Lift hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. midweek and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekends and peak days.
