Media Visits

  • Please contact us as early as possible to schedule a visit. We will need to know the purpose of your visit, your media affiliation, when and how long you will be visiting, and what assistance you will need from the resort.
  • You may be asked to submit a letter of assignment on company letterhead from your editor, publisher, news director, assignment editor or producer that includes a date when your piece is expected to run.
  • Complimentary lift tickets will be issued only to those directly responsible for producing a story. Due to the large volume of visiting media, we are not able to offer complimentary lift tickets to spouses, significant others, children or friends.
  • During holiday periods we traditionally do not offer complimentary lift tickets and/or other services. 2010/11 holiday dates include December 18-31, 2010. January 1-2, 15-17, February 19-21, 2011.
