Lift tickets are just $47, Ski or Snowboard rentals are $26, and Learn to Ski or Ride packages are only $62 – including rental equipment, lessons, and a learning area lift ticket.

The Student Activities Office has made arrangements for BreakShuttle.com to continue to offer transportation to the Boston, Hartford, and New York City for many of the college’s breaks.  More information and a link will follow.  We have made this transition to allow for more options and additional trips to what we were able to offer previously.  Pricing information and the schedule are available here: http://www.breakshuttle.com/bates-college.html

Additionally travel to the Jetport is available from Mermaid Transportation.
