Sunday River Season Passes

Gould students receive a discounted rate on season passes, provided that they purchase their pass before a designated cut-off date in late fall. Parents purchasing a pass for their child are expected to send in a photo and fill out the necessary forms for Sunday River.

Sunday River will print a new RFID pass for each new student / first-time pass holder who has purchased their pass and submitted a photo and signed waiver. The pass will be delivered to the boarding student's mailbox at school. Renewal passes for returning students will automatically be uploaded to their previously issued RFID pass.

Please note that all students participating in competitive and non-competitive winter mountain activities need a season pass.
