Ski Cooper season pass holders can spiff out friends and family this season. All pass holders can purchase a discounted Buddy Ticket during the 2008-09 ski season for $25 Monday through Friday.

It's a one-per-day deal and must be used the same day as purchased, but it's worth hooking up with a season pass holder if you can't be one yourself.

Blackout dates where the Buddy Ticket will not be available for purchase are Christmas Vacation Dec. 25, 2008 – Jan. 4, 2009; Martin Luther King Day weekend Jan. 16-19, 2009; Presidents’ Day Weekend Feb. 13-16, 2009; and Spring Break March 13-29, 2009.
