Not only do K-Tickets offer significant savings over window ticket rates, but with the purchase of seven Unlimited K-Tickets, skiers and riders receive a free lift ticket, valid any non-peak day of the 2013-14 season. Tickets are non-refundable and can be used all at once by sharing with friends and family or on separate dates throughout the season.
