Pass Purchases and Program Procedures

Gold Passes may be obtained through the office of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Foundation, the non-profit fundraising arm of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard. Gold Passes are granted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Each pass is numbered for control purposes and recorded on a master list of pass owners, which is then sent to the participating ski areas' ticket offices.
