HIGHLY RECOMMENDED — ORDER
TICKETS IN ADVANCE, PAY ONSITE!
A 5% transaction fee (our cost) will be charged for any portion of a lift ticket payment that needs to be refunded by credit card. Avoid these charges by avoiding the need for a refund. See below for instructions on how to order in advance but pay onsite, and for answers to other frequently asked questions.
Exceptional group rates are available through the symposium for registrants and accompanying family and friends. Adult 4-, 5-, 6-, and 7-day tickets include a free day of skiing. Child, teen, and senior tickets are all the same price. Children 6 and under ski free, only the $5 charge for radio frequency card applies (note that these tickets are not sold through the meeting and can be obtained at any lift ticket window). Over 69? — contact us for information on additional ticket options, as needed.
Two ways to defer lift ticket payment until you arrive onsite and pick up your order: Either of the following two options will allow you to reserve lift tickets and create a balance due for onsite payment. The associated balance due will be cleared after you arrive onsite, confirm your final order, and make payment.
Additional discounts with lift tickets purchased through the symposium — Aspen Skiing Company Mountain Advantage Program: Our adult group lift tickets entitle you to savings on ski and snowboard lessons, as well as purchases or rentals at Aspen Skiing Company retail outlets, including ski and snowboard shops and participating on-mountain restaurants. These offers will come loaded onto your ticket and are only available onsite. You will need to show your lift ticket to qualify for these savings.
