(The club is not assigning people to hotel rooms.  To qualify for dbl. occ. per person rate, both occupants must indicate that they want to share the room with each other, and the second occupant must register within 5 days of the first.)


We are working on scheduling a “welcome” breakfast on Monday morning, or another group event.  The breakfast or other event is included in your registration price. 


Lift tickets:


Group-rate lift tickets are not available, so participants are responsible for their own lift tickets.  Skiers may buy tickets at the discount advance on-line price, or various passes (Epic Pass, W-B season pass, Edge Card), purchased in advance.  An additional suggestion would be to ask a friend on the trip using an Epic Pass if they will include you in their “ski with a friend” or “buddy” tickets.  Consult the W-B website and/or call 1-888-403-4727 for information regarding ticket and pass options.    

Every skier and rider will need an advance reservation for mountain access.  You must get that yourself.   You can't get on a lift without the access reservation.  Go online to , find the page for mountain access reservations, and reserve your dates.  If you have an Epic Pass, Edge Card, or WB season pass, you are ready after you reserve your dates.   The reservation system opens November 6.

Group lift tickets are unavailable for this trip.  If you need lift tickets buy online advance purchase lift tickets which include mountain access.  Lift tickets become available after December 8.
