DISCOUNTED LIFT TICKETS, RENTAL GEAR, & ACTIVITIES

Click here to book online. The promotional code is NWAO24. Here are the steps for booking:

  1. For the arrival date, you’d need to enter the first day you’d like to use the lift ticket and/or rentals. Departure date is the last day for the lift ticket and/or rentals. 
  2. Select the product you want, ski or snowboard and the type – Sport equipment is for beginners to novice level / Performance: Intermediate level / Demo: Expert level. Helmets are not required but are highly recommended.
  3. The quantity is the number of days you would like to have the rentals. If you want to use it for 5 days, select 5 under quantity. Click add.
  4.  Then click on Add to cart.
  5.  An insert will appear asking if you’d like to include damage waiver. This costs C$5 (before tax) a day. This is not required but recommended as in the event of damages, it’s cheaper this way than claiming it from insurance. If you are booking the rental equipment for 5 days, then you’d need 5 days or damage waivers too. Click on Add (or No Thanks, depending on your preference).

At the end, it should say, “Your itinerary (itinerary #) has been successfully confirmed . You can jot down the itinerary number for your reference.

Equipment booked can be picked up after 4pm the day before you are using the rentals. Just bring along the booking confirmation. We’ve arranged the rentals for your group at Summit Sport which is conveniently situated within the Hilton hotel.
