    The Descente 2013 Passport list....

    http://www.descente.com/contact/passport-details/

    Looks like the only addition is Snow Summit in Southern California. However on Facebook they mentioned Whiteface and Gore would be on there this year. So not sure how accurate it is yet. Assuming it is accurate, for losses we have Windham, The Canyons, Sunday River, Spirit MN. Bit surprised Apline Meadows is still on there after Squaw bought them out.

    Looks like they fixed the list. Added Gore, Whiteface, Shawnee ME, and Brundage ID for this year. Also put the Canyons back in. Was a bit surprised that one was missing before since they're still in the Geigerrig Passport.

    What can I say, I'm devious.

    Last year I made a Google Map of all the "participating gas stations" throughout ski country that are in the program, and I'll update it and post a link here once it's out for 2012/13. The link can be opened on a smartphone, and so you can use GPS with it, definitely helped me score more gas stamps last year on stations that I would have missed out on.

    Is there a link to the actual passport so we can see the individual details/restrictions for each mountain?

    That would be nice, but unlike Geigerrig they've never done that in the past, so I wouldn't expect it this year. I always check it out at the Ski Barn before buying. Hope it not mostly M-F like the Geigerrig this year. I'm sure somebody will post the detals here or on epicski at some point.

    For those of you who like to plan really early, Liftopia has a bunch of $9 days at Wildcat and Attitash.

    Edit: Make that two days at each place, thought there were a couple more.

    ACE Ski and Board Club (my club) will offer ACE members with EICSL affiliation special "awareness days" at select New England ski/board areas in 2012-13. The details are being worked and will be announced at the first club meeting on September 8th. Email and members-only discount news will be issued two weeks after each meeting. This is in addition to the usual club-only discounts to Stowe, Whiteface, etc.
