Big Sky Resort Announces Pilot Fast Pass Program2/28/12
BIG SKY, Mont. — Big Sky Resort is excited to announce the pilot Fast Pass program, where guests can get a complimentary pass for a reserved timeslot on the Lone Peak Tram. On Saturdays and Sundays during March of 2012, guests may show their season pass or lift ticket at a Fast Pass window to reserve timeslots from 10:45am through 3:00pm, running in 15-minute increments, weather depending.
“Riding the Lone Peak Tram is the signature Big Sky experience, and we want to make sure everyone gets a chance to do that,” said Meg O’Leary, Big Sky Resort’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “With the Fast Pass, you’ll be able to have a great Tram experience, and spend your time skiing instead of waiting in line – just like with every other lift at Big Sky Resort.”
Fast Passes are distributed the day-of on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests are limited to one Fast Pass per day, and are given a 30-minute grace period from their assigned timeslot until their pass expires. Fast Pass timeslots will take up 1/3 of available Tram capacity, ensuring that both Fast Pass holders and skiers without a reserved timeslot will be able to get on the Tram quickly and efficiently.
“We’re excited to use this pilot run to help us make Fast Pass into a successful product that makes everyone’s experience at Big Sky even better than it already is.” said Chad Jones, Public Relations Manager.
Skiers must have a day lift ticket or a season pass in order to get a Fast Pass. Guests may pick up their individual Fast Pass only, and may not pick up Fast Passes for friends or family who are not present. Guests who are interested in taking a scenic tram ride and do not wish to ski down may visit the Tram between 3:00pm and 3:30pm, after the Tram is closed to skiers. No Fast Pass is required for this time.
