White Gold Card – Michigan Snowsports Industries Association makes it possible to ski at 35 areas for just $269

They’re in! The White Gold Cards have arrived and we just shipped them to ski shops around the state! Ski one time at 34 Michigan ski areas, get your skis tuned, get a coupon worth $20 off $100 at participating retailers and receive 3 hot wax sessions for your skis or board all for $269.

The White Gold Cards should be available at your local ski shop by Thursday or Friday.

<>

The Michigan Snowsports Industries Association (MSIA) has produced a card that allows the holder to ski at 34 different Michigan ski areas this winter for just $269.  Called the MSIA White Gold Card, it entitles the purchaser to ski one time at each of the participating ski areas during the 2017/2018 ski season. In addition to the 34 lift tickets, White Gold Card purchasers also receive one complimentary ski or snowboard tune-up, 3 hot was sessions and a coupon for $20 off a purchase of $100 at participating retailers.  The retail value is over $1,600!

The cards will be available at participating retail stores throughout the state and we have a limited number to sell from this website. You save the $8 shipping fee (per order not per card) by purchasing at your local ski shop. However, if you want to pay for yours now, we will ship it to you when they have arrived.  We only have 400 to sell and they sold out fast last year!

The card looks like a credit card, divided into squares.  Each ski area is assigned to a square and one square is designated for the ski tune-up.  The purchaser takes the White Gold Card to the ski area’s lift ticket window, where the square corresponding to that ski area is punched out.  White Gold Card skiers are allowed to ski one time at each ski area, midweek or weekend.  The card is valid for the entire ski season, except for December 24, 2017 through January 2, 2018.  The cards are non-refundable and non-transferable.  To get the tune-up and hot wax services, White Gold Card purchasers take their skis or boards to one of our participating ski shops.

MSIA developed the White Gold Card as a fundraising endeavor and limits its production to 400 cards.  “We’ve found from past years’ sales that they go quickly,” says Steve Kershner, MSIA Chairman and Director of Snowsports at Shanty Creek Resorts.  He suggests that anyone interested in purchasing a card should do so as soon as possible.

You may pre-order them online via the MSIA website here, or purchase them at participating retailers (listed below) once they have arrived from the printer.
