Participating Resorts: Alta Ski Area, Deer Valley Resort, Snowbird and new this year - Solitude Mountain Resort

PARK CITY, Utah (July 6, 2017) – The Wasatch Benefit Program returns for its fifth consecutive winter season with the addition of Solitude Mountain Resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

The Wasatch Benefit Program is a collaboration between Alta Ski Area, Deer Valley Resort, Snowbird and Solitude Mountain Resort to offer two complimentary day tickets to the other three resorts to qualifying season pass holders. 

“We are pleased to provide Alta season pass holders with the Wasatch Benefit, which is an opportunity to ski two days at Snowbird, Deer Valley, and Solitude,” said Alta Ski Area’s General Manager, Mike Maughan. “The Wasatch Benefit facilitates skiing experiences at some of the best resorts in Utah.”

“The most important thing for us is to thank our loyal guests who continue to come back year after year,” said Deer Valley Resort President and General Manager Bob Wheaton. “We are pleased to be able to offer this benefit for the fifth year to our Deer Valley season pass holders. It’s a great way to show our gratitude and continue this partnership with three world-class Utah resorts.”  

“We feel the addition of Solitude Mountain Resort will be a very nice improvement to the already very popular Wasatch Benefit,” said Dave Fields, Vice President of Resort Operations at Snowbird.

We are thrilled to have Big Cottonwood Canyon represented as part of the Wasatch Benefit this year with the addition of Solitude,” said Kim Mayhew, Solitude Mountain Resort general manager. “The accessibility between resorts in the Wasatch is like no other and we are looking forward to offering our season pass holders access to neighboring resorts during the 2017-2018 winter season.”

This benefit is valid for the 2017 - 2018 winter ski season only. Qualifying Season Passes must be presented at the time of redemption to each of the other three mountain resorts' ticket offices in order to receive the complimentary shared privilege pass; there will be no exceptions.

One ticket per day, per resort, will be issued and the tickets are 100% non-transferable.

Eligibility requirements for the ticket benefit are particular to each resort. Supplies are limited, please purchase early.

This day ticket benefit will be honored seven days a week, including weekends, throughout each resort’s ski season with holiday blackout dates applying December 24, 2017, to January 1, 2018, January 12 to 15, 2018, and February 16 to 19, 2018.
