Las Vegas (March 11, 2011)Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort (LVSSR) is offering a chance to get in on the great spring skiing conditions and huge savings with its Sunshine Card. The pass is available for $150 starting Saturday, March 12, 2011 and is valid for unlimited skiing and boarding through the end of the season. Sunshine cards can be purchased at LVSSR’s ticket window located at the base lodge.

“We’ve had a great snow year and the spring skiing is fantastic. Adult full-day passes are $50, so for those planning to ski during spring break, or at least four times during March and April, it’s a great deal,” says Curt Sheffield, LVSSR’s director of business affairs.

Also on March 12, LVSSR kicks off its 2011/12-preseason pass sales, offering savings up to 30 percent on its seven 2011/12 season pass options.
