We gladly ship your Lift Ticket Card to your door when you purchase online, 9 days in advance (14 days for international). If purchasing within 9 days of your trip (14 days for international guests), simply pick up your card at the Express Lift Ticket Pickup location.

Should I keep my Lift Ticket Card? 
Absolutely! Skip the ticket lines and head straight to the slopes on future trips by adding new Lift Tickets to your existing Lift Ticket Card. When purchasing, simply select "Have a Card" online, choose the existing card #, and assign your new lift ticket.  

All lift tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable. Any Lift ticket adjustments needed may be made in-resort and will be based on the window rate ticket on the day of the adjustment.
