Allow at least 48 hours for processing to get the discounted lift ticket set up. Purchasers of the ticket will get a voucher number in a confirmation email. That voucher number must be redeemed at the ski area’s ticket window to receive the actual lift ticket. A valid ID must also be shown at the ticket window as the vouchers are not transferable.
The discounted tickets went on sale Dec. 2. They are on sale for 99 days, through early March.
Make A Hero, a non-profit organization, aims to help local adaptive sports organizations financially and assist skiers or snowboarders who have suffered debilitating injuries to get back on the slopes or first timers experience the thrill of adaptive skiing. Donations go towards enabling skiers to attend adaptive camps and lessons.
The Movement film, which just got invited to the Sundance Film Festival, highlights the Make A Hero organization. Check out the updated trailer to the film:
