Thank you all for your hardwork.

We want to issue all of the vouchers you have earned. If you have not done so already, please email to start the voucher request process.

Please include the following information:

Name….Date of Birth…..number of days that you boot packed ….and…..type of credit you prefer:

credit toward a season pass….

credit toward a parking pass…or

credit toward single day lift tickets.

You may not mix and match different types of credit.

Boot packer credit can only be issued for one type of voucher to each boot packer.

Boot Packer credit is transferrable and may be issued to family and friends. If you want a voucher issued in the name of a family member or a friend….please include their NAME… DATE OF BIRTH…mailing address, phone number and email.
