    Costco ski vouchers?

    Never done the Costco ski voucher thing. Mrs and I headed to Montana to hit up Whitefish in a few weeks. Costco sells a voucher for two adult tix that need to be used within 24 hours of purchase. Any issues with this? Can you just show an e-mail confirmation on your phone at the ticket window? Paper trail confirmation could be a problem. Never know what the hotel will have for that.

    Costco sells actual physical tickets. buy the two pack at costco, drive to the ski hill, get in line for the lift, and have the lifty scan your ticket which will activate it for the day. Super easy, pretty economic, and a huge time saver.

    Guess I should have mentioned that this is for on-line purchased vouchers. Unless there is a Costco store in Kalispell or Whitefish that is handy?

    I don't think you're reading this correctly.

    I suspect it can only be used starting 24 hours after purchasing.

    eDelivery

    Buy it ahead of time, print voucher, bring to ticket window, profit. The comments on costco.com say you must print the voucher and that they will not scan your phone. This seems insane but whatever.

    It does not sound like eDelivery to phone to present at tix window to redeem will fly. Need paper. On line purchase allows you to be a non-member to buy, with a 5% surcharge which is like $6. That is no problem. So I could drive to the Kalispell Costco but you have to be a member to walk through the door. Don't want to pay $60 for that. Reasonably safe to say any hotel we stay at is going to have a printer were a printout can be made.

    If you know you're going, get someone here to buy for you and email you the vouchers. You print at home and bring printout with. Easy.

    I have a Costco membership and will do it for you if you want.

    And if you don't use them Costco will take them back (AFAIK).

    If you plan to ski 5 or more days, the freequent skier card is a better deal.

    D'oh! Nice work reading the fine print. Or just reading the page in general...

    Reading comprehension? Huh?

    24 hours after sounds good. Will purchase and print them out at home prior to travel day.

    Getting pretty excited to head out. Ski itinerary is two days at Whitefish, drive to Fernie for two. Drive back south ski 1/2 at Blacktail. Finish with two at Whitefish.

    Thanks for responding,
    Cheers.

    Fernie’s a way better hill. One day at Whitefish would be plenty.

    This worked for me for Killington passes last year, I never used them and they took them back, more than a month after I bought a 3 pack.

    There is a Costco in Kalispell if you're heading that way. It's right on 93, isn't it?
    No longer stuck.
