AUGUSTA (AP) — A Maine ski area is offering cut-rate season passes to honor roll students to promote scholarship and physical fitness.

Saddleback’s program on Wednesday drew support from Gov. John Baldacci, who joined Saddleback General Manager Warren Cook for the announcement of the so-called PEAK Program at the State House. PEAK stands for Promoting Education and Activity for Kids.

Saddleback promises to provide discounted season passes for all Maine honor roll students, who will be eligible to purchase season passes for $49.

Baldacci Saddleback’s program encourages youths to not only work hard at school, but to get outside and have fun.
