MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Digital identity solution provider ID.me today announced a partnership with Snowshoe Mountain, the premier destination for Mid-Atlantic and Southeast skiers, snowboarders, and winter enthusiasts. Snowshoe Mountain will be offering a “Patriot Pass” for all active U.S. military, veterans, and their immediate dependents. The Patriot Pass, a discounted season pass that grants access to all three areas of the mountain, is exempt from blackout dates and includes military-specific benefits as well as benefits reserved for season pass holders.
Snowshoe Mountain is a year-round mountain resort located in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia. The mountaintop village sits nestled among 11,000 acres of privately owned wilderness, and offers a variety of amenities. In addition to skiing and snowboarding trails for every skill level, Snowshoe also offers a spa, motorized tours, a snow tubing park, dining and shopping, and several other planned activities for visitors and guests. The resort is also equipped with a variety of outdoor recreational activities that are appropriate for warm weather visitors.
Using ID.me, members of the military community and their immediate dependents can have their military affiliation instantly verified and relayed to Snowshoe to receive the discounted mountain passes. After successfully confirming their identity, users can log into ID.me’s Marketplace for access to discounts from Snowshoe Mountain as well as hundreds of other partnering retailers, while earning cash back on purchases.
“We believe that leading resorts like Snowshoe should have the ability to recognize military service through exclusive promotions with confidence that the customers who claim the offer did in fact serve in the military,” said Blake Hall, Co-founder and CEO of ID.me. “We are proud that our verification technology allows resorts like Snowshoe Mountain to honor military families without fear of fraud.”
With 38 military installations within a six hour drive of Snowshoe, the resort frequently develops programs and events to show appreciation to the large populations of active duty military, retired veterans and their families in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Snowshoe Mountain offers everyday discounts on lift tickets, lodging, and season passes to military, veterans, and their families.
“Snowshoe prides itself on offering easy getaways for military and their families shouldering the sacrifices that come with the job,” explains David Dekema, Marketing Director, Snowshoe Mountain Resort.
Founded by two Army Rangers, ID.me is a digital identity network that enables brands to securely offer promotions to specific communities by verifying group affiliations. Previously, retailers had no way to offer exclusive discounts online, as there was no widely adopted solution where brands could easily see if a consumer was eligible for a particular promotion.
To take advantage of this exclusive pass from Snowshoe Mountain, members of the military community and their dependents simply need to sign up online through ID.me, and then verify their credentials during checkout.
Veteran-founded and led, ID.me is the first digital identity network that allows consumers to prove who they are online while controlling how their information is shared with brands. For participating organizations, ID.me acts as a trusted intermediary, capable of verifying consumer identity and group affiliations in real-time. This allows brands to ensure a consistent customer experience across offline and online channels while reducing costs, fraud and security risks associated with manual verification. ID.me has partnered with over 130 leading brands, including Under Armour, Overstock.com, Uber, Dell and Starbucks. ID.me’s plug-in technology works with the leading ecommerce platforms, including Magento, Demandware and Spree Commerce.
