It's a Why Not Wednesday- so lift tickets are just $52 when you purchase online or bring an unopened Dasani Water donation to the ticket window!  We are in the midst of an active weather pattern, with mixed precipitation in the forecast for a bit longer- but with that we're expecting a healthy amount of snow too!  Reload your SKI3 Card online in advance for direct-to-lift access, or buy online for great savings.  Freestylers- we hope you've been practicing on our new professionally designed competition-level cross course on Wild Air and Pot Luck, as well as a nice lineup of stuff on Lower Sleighride.  Check out a super stash of beginner features open on Jibland!
