How to redeem your online purchase

NEW for 2019/2020- RFID- Radio-Frequency Identification refers to a lift ticket technology that stores digital data encoded and captured by radio waves. Most notably is that RFID is able to be read outside the line of sight. You simply place the media in a pocket to spend less time fumbling for your ticket, and more time on the slopes.

If you already have your Big Sky RFID card, your purchase is pre-loaded onto the media. You now have direct lift access.  You do not need to stop by Will Call or any other Big Sky Resort Ticketing location unless you need a new piece of media.

For NEW media, please bring your order confirmation number and a photo ID when redeeming your online purchase You can pick up your RFID card with lift access by visiting our Basecamp Office or Ticket Windows in the Mountain Village Plaza or at the Madison Base Ticket Office.  You may pick up your lift tickets from any of these Big Sky Resort ticket outlets as early as 2PM the day before you intend to ski.
