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 Michigan Snowsports Industries Association (MSIA) has produced the White Gold Card. The card allows the holder to ski at 34 different Michigan ski areas this winter for just $269.  The MSIA White Gold Card 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.

Fourth & Fifth Graders Ski Free with MSIA Cold is Cool Passport!


The Michigan Snowsports Industries Association (MSIA) wants to give Michigan kids an opportunity to get out, have fun and get healthy this winter. This is why MSIA has established a state-wide program that provides every 4th and 5th grader the opportunity to ski for free. Students can obtain a “Cold is Cool” Ski & Ride Passport that gives them up to three free lift tickets or trail passes over 25 participating ski areas, plus additional discounts on the slopes and in Michigan ski shops.  MSIA charges $20 for the passport (to cover printing and shipping.)

In addition to the lift tickets donated by the participating ski areas, the Cold is Cool Passport also includes a coupon for 20% off a helmet purchase and $20 off the purchase of $100 at participating ski shops across the state.  Some ski areas have also included coupons for equipment rental and free or discounted lessons.

Proof of 4th or 5th grade status is required.  One page of a report card or progress report is sufficient.  If the child is home schooled, the parent or guardian can include a note stating the child’s grade equivalent.  Please note!  Put your child’s name and address in the “Ship To” column if you are ordering online.

MSIA charges $20 for the Cold is Cool Passport, to cover printing, shipping and postage fees.

In order for fourth & fifth graders to use the free lift or trail pass coupons, a paying adult must accompany them. “We feel that fourth and fifth graders should be supervised by an adult while on the slopes and trails. Our intention is to make this a fun, affordable and safe activity for the entire family,” says Mickey MacWilliams, MSIA executive director. With the Passport, up to two kids can ski free with each paying adult.  The Passport is valid through April 30, or the end of the 2017/18 ski season.
