Tickets & Passes


PASSES TO FIT EVERY OCCASION

All pricing below is current as of November 1, 2021, for the 2021-22 season. To start the 2021-22 season with the new Discovery Lift Card system — enabled with RFID technology — season passes purchased online before opening day can be picked up at Guest Services in the lodge or at preseason events to be announced (sign up for our newsletter to receive more information about these events). On opening day season passes can be picked up on the mountain at Guest Services. Daily lift tickets can be picked up on or any time after opening day at the Ticket Kiosks. Season passes purchased online after the mountain opens for the season can be picked up at a Ticket Kiosk in front of the lodge.

Buy online at any time to save on all daily Discovery Lift Cards and skip the purchase line when you arrive. Buying online always gets you our best pricing — and you can go straight from your car to the lift with just a quick stop at a Ticket Kiosk to pick up your card. So more snow time for you!

As always here at Discovery, children age 5 and under (at time of pass purchase) ski free when with a paying adult. Please add the child pass (cost $0) to your shopping cart when purchasing an adult daily lift card. Your child will need to carry his/her Discovery Lift Card when on the mountain.

Ticket prices purchased at the Guest Services window on the mountain are listed below for the 2021-2022 season. Purchasing tickets online will always be less expensive.

*Our youngest powderhounds ski free when with a paid adult. They do need a Discovery Lift Card, there's just no fee.

Each year new season passes and season pass renewals will be available for purchase starting March 1. As always, the earliest purchase dates offer the most savings.

2021-22 season passes purchased online before opening day can be picked up on the mountain at our Guest Services office or at to-be-announced preseason events. Purchased after the mountain opens, season passes will be picked up on the mountain at the Ticket Kiosks.

Note: All age restrictions are based on the age of the passholder at the time of purchase, not their age during the ski season.

Children age 5 and under (at time of pass purchase) ski free at Discovery when with a paying adult. Please note to add the child season pass (cost $0) to your shopping cart when purchasing an adult season pass. Your child will need to carry his/her RFID-enabled Discovery Lift Card when on the mountain.

Five days of Montana goodness for yourself — or to give as a most-appreciated gift. The Discovery 5-Pack saves you serious money compared to our standard day lift tickets. A good deal! Our 2021-22 season 5-Packs are available for purchase only online between November 1 and December 25. Pick up your Five-Pack at a Ticket Kiosk on the mountain, and then use it any time during the 2021-22 snow season. To buy as a gift: just assign the skier / boarder to the pack at purchase; it is not otherwise transferable.
