Free Daily Lift Ticket Handling
We receive a limited number of free daily lift tickets for chaperones, emergency drivers & greeters. These lift tickets are a courtesy which is provided by the ski area. These tickets are DATED & ONLY valid on the days they are handed out. All Program Coordinators, Bus Chaperones, Emergency Drivers &/or Greeters receiving a free dated ticket must agree their ticket may not be sold, traded or given away & that it is expressly for their sole use.
Single Day Bus Tickets
If there is a vacant seat on one of our buses, the head chaperone may sell $55 single ride tickets to anyone wishing the single day transportation option.
Program Coordinator Tickets / Discount Season Passes
Every Program Coordinator will receive one (1) free dated ticket for each week they come to the mountain OR if they have at least 30 paid bus participants in their program, they may choose to receive one (1) Staff Application form allowing them to purchase ONE $60 + tax Staff Season Pass. If you have at least 40 paid YSS bus participants YSS will reimburse your $60 + tax pass fee. Please keep in mind that this season pass is only good for the named Program Coordinator and there may only be one PC per program!
Every bus may receive up to three (3) free dated tickets. The Program Coordinator is considered one (1) of the three (3) Chaperones. If the Program Coordinator has elected to take the staff season pass, then the available Chaperone tickets is reduced down to two (2) tickets per week. As an added courtesy each bus may have a fourth (4th) Chaperone seat on a space available basis. This Chaperone does NOT qualify for a free dated ticket on that trip. No other non-paying passengers are to be allowed on the bus for any reason without the advance permission of the Ski School Director.
EACH Bus is allowed one (1) Emergency Driver. The Emergency Driver receives one (1) free dated ticket. Emergency Drivers must report to the ski school meeting hut upon arriving at the mountains (before the buses arrive). They are to go to the ski patrol at least once every 2 hours to check for injured participants. Finally, they must NOT leave the mountains until all participants are accounted for and all the buses from their program have left the parking lot for the return trip.If an Emergency Driver wants a season pass instead of the comp ticket they must: Agree to go up as an Emergency Driver all six weeks your program operates and they must pay the $160 + tax support staff season pass fee. We do anticipate receiving a few Emergency Driver season passes that the ski area is going to waive the additional $100 + tax fee on. Please contact us ASAP if you are interested in learning more about getting one of these special season passes.
We want one (1) or two (2) greeters for most sessions we teach group lessons. Greeters may earn one (1) free dated ticket for agreeing to work at least two sessions on that day.

We will then select the greeters as needed for each session.
