How Do i buy a lift ticket?

You must buy your lift ticket online in advance of arriving at The Mountain Top . The lift ticket provides you entry to The Mountain Top and access to the ski lift for as many rides as you can enjoy. Lift tickets are valid on dates chosen only. Once an online sale is finalized, you will receive an email confirmation containing a confirmation number to be redeemed at the outdoor window or indoor kiosk.

Advance purchase lift tickets are non-refundable unless The Mountain Top is closed on the date of visit. A credit voucher will be issued if this happens. Please contact for more information.
