Gold Pass Buddy Tickets

Skiing is better with friends! Every Big Sky Resort Gold Pass comes with 8 Buddy Lift Tickets at $95 each.

Get your Buddy Tickets online and head straight to the lifts! Follow the instructions below to purchase your tickets online, and pick up your pre-loaded Sky Cards at our Sky Card Express Boxes on-resort.

Winter 21-22 season Buddy Tickets will be available to redeem starting June 2021.

Gold Pass Buddy Tickets will not include access to the Lone Peak Tram for the winter 2021-22 season. More information will be coming soon on how Buddy Ticket holders can purchase Tram access. Read our FAQ for more information on how access to the Tram is changing this season.

Accessing your Buddy Ticket Voucher Codes

  1. Log onto your Big Sky Resort Shop account using the account you used to purchase your Gold Pass.
  2. Once logged in, click on "My Account" in the navigation bar.
  3. Click on "Big Sky Redemption Codes" on the left side of the page.
  4. You should see your Buddy Lift Ticket Vouchers with IDs and expiration dates. Note that if you purchased multiple Gold Passes on this account, all of your vouchers will be available here.
  5. To use a voucher, you'll need the ID code listed. This is visible here, or below the barcode on the "View/Print" page.


From here, send the voucher ID code to the person you'd like to share your Buddy Ticket with. To purchase a lift ticket, they'll have to have a profile with Big Sky Resort and a valid RFID Sky Card. Sky Cards can be purchased during checkout.


Vouchers are valid for one $95 Buddy Lift Ticket. Vouchers expire at the end of the 21-22 winter ski season. 

Redeeming a Buddy Ticket Voucher

  1. Access the Buddy Ticket page in the Big Sky Resort Shop.
  2. Add your desired dates & quantities and proceed to checkout. Note that Buddy Tickets are good for one individual for one day each.
  3. Assign your Buddy Tickets to the appropriate members of your group. If you are purchasing tickets for someone outside of your group, please provide the code to them so that they are able to connect their lift ticket to their profile.
  4. Select the appropriate Sky Card or add a new one to your purchase.
  5. Enter your Buddy Pass Voucher code. If you are purchasing multiple Buddy Tickets, each ticket will need a unique voucher code.
  6. Finish the checkout process.


If you chose to reload an existing Sky Card with your Buddy Ticket, the holder of that ticket will be able to go straight to the lifts on the day of their ticket. If you purchased a new Sky Card, you can pick it up on-resort at one of our Sky Card Express boxes.
