Alaska Airlines and Whitefish Mountain Resort have partnered up to benefit skiers and snowboarders. Those who fly from Seattle into Kalispell, Montana can get a lodging and lift ticket discount to ski the Whitefish slopes.

Flying via Alaska Airlines can get you 10 percent off lodging and 10 percent off lift tickets at Whitefish Mountain Resort. The lodging discount is for on-mountain properties, and the lift ticket discount is off ticket window rates.

Getting the discount requires keeping your boarding pass rather than tossing it in the trash. You’ll need to show the boarding pass at check in.

The discount program rewards those who book early. In order to get the lift and lodging discount, reservations need to be made by Nov. 25, 2012. Trips need to be scheduled for this winter between Dec. 13, 2012 and Feb. 15, 2013. Other restrictions may apply; ask for a clarification when booking.

You’ll also need to use codes when booking your trip. When making your lodging and lift ticket reservations with Whitefish Mountain Resort, use the code “AKA.” When booking your flights with Alaska Airlines, use the code “EC8856.”

Two Alaska Airline flights go between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and Glacier Park International Airport in Kalispell (FCA) each day. Flights depart Seattle at 1:15 and 9:45 p.m. Flights depart Kalispell at 6 a.m. and 4:10 p.m.
