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

The Michigan Snowsports Industries Association (MSIA) has produced a card that allows the holder to ski at 35 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 2016/2017 ski season. In addition to the 35 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 $1,500!

The cards are now available at participating retail stores throughout the state and we will have a limited number to sell from this website soon. You save the $8 shipping fee (per order not per card) by purchasing at your local ski shop. We only have 400 to sell and they sold out fast last year!  See the list below for a retailer near you.

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, 2016 through January 2, 2017.  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 the over 47 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.
