Lift Tickets & Rentals
General Mountain and Lodge Info
Q: How much are your lift tickets?
A: We utilize dynamic pricing, so our lift tickets will be different prices, based on what day you purchase tickets for and how far in advance you buy your tickets. Generally speaking, lift tickets will be cheaper on weekdays and more expensive at peak times, like weekends and holidays. See our calendar for pricing and purchase tickets here: https://shop.nordicmountain.com/lifttickets
Q: Do I need to purchase tickets, rentals, and/or lessons online in advance?
A: We strongly recommend purchasing everything online in advance to reserve your spot. For weekends and holidays, we recommend purchasing tickets at least two weeks in advance. Tubing and lessons sell out regularly. If our online store says that we are sold out, we are also sold out in person and will not sell any walk ins.
Q: Do I need a lift ticket if I stay on the bunny hill?
A: Yes! Although it is called a "lift" ticket, it is not specific to our chair lift. A lift ticket is basically an admission ticket for anyone who is going to be out on the snow, skiing or snowboarding. It will give you access to all of our lifts, including our conveyor belts, rope tow, handle tow, and chair lift.
If you are planning to only ski/snowboard on the bunny/beginner hill, we do offer a beginner area ticket. This ticket will give you access to our two beginner areas, serviced by conveyor belts. Children 6 years old and younger can receive a free tot ticket, with the purchase of an adult ticket (redeemed at the ticket window upon arrival).
All lift tickets can be purchased here: https://shop.nordicmountain.com/lifttickets
Q: Is there a height or age requirement for skiing / snowboarding lift tickets?
A: Nope! Anyone is welcome to come skiing or snowboarding. If you are worried about purchasing rentals in your size, you can always call ahead to double check our inventory, and one of our rentals staff would be happy to assist you.
If you have a little one, just starting out on skis, you may be interested in our Parent and Tot multi-week lesson program. More info can be found here: https://www.nordicmountain.com/multi-week-lessons/
Q: Is there a lift ticket for the beginner hill / bunny hill?
A: Yes! If you are planning to only ski/snowboard on the bunny/beginner hill, we offer a beginner area ticket. This ticket will give you access to our two beginner areas, serviced by conveyor belts.
Beginner area tickets can be purchased here: https://shop.nordicmountain.com/lifttickets
Q: How do I reload my RFID card?
A: In our online store, select the day you would like to come skiing or snowboarding and the quantities of each type of ticket you would like to purchase. Check the box to agree to the Terms & Conditions and select "Add to Cart." On the next page, under "My Order," select "Assign to RFID Pass."

Q: Is there somewhere I can keep my stuff while I'm out on the hill? Do you have lockers or cubbies for guests?
A: We encourage all guests to only arrive with what they need to ski/board/tube and to leave everything else at home or in their car. We have a limited number of cubbies and lockers, reserved for guests renting equipment. Any unattended items found in our lodge will be moved to the cubbies in our rentals building.

A: No, we only allow one rider per tube, for safety reasons.

Q: Do I need to walk back up the hill? How do I get back up the hill for tubing?
