During the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes achieved historic milestones. A hallmark of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard presence in PyeongChang was our competitiveness across nearly every sport. Out of that competitiveness came historic, breakthrough gold medal successes, including the first gold of the Games for snowboard star Red Gerard, Shawn White winning Team USA’s 100th Winter Olympic medal and the first ever Olympic cross-country gold from Kikkan Randall and Jessie Diggins, among eight athletes winning gold medals. In all, 16 medals were awarded to our U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes, with many more athletes scoring personal or sport-best finishes.

While the 2018 Olympic Games have come to a close the journey of many of our athletes continues on. For them the Olympics aren’t every four years but every day. You can help support the team through the Gold Pass program. Gold Pass donors are the team behind the team that help athletes like Nick Goepper go from a little kid skiing down the driveway to an Olympic medalists.  


The Gold Pass is transferable and may be used by anyone the owner designates. It's understood that everyone who uses the Gold Pass is aware of the rules and procedures for using it. Any abuse of these rules and procedures will result in the Gold Pass becoming invalid, with no refund to the owner. 


1. The Gold Pass may be used by only one person to obtain one lift ticket at only one ski area per day. Upon presenting the Gold Pass at a participating ski area, the bearer will be issued a one-day lift ticket valid for all lifts. 

2. The issued lift ticket is non-refundable and, under no circumstances can it be given away or sold. Misuse of the Gold Pass will result in the pass being revoked. 

3. The Gold Pass may be used 50 times at each of the participating ski areas below. 

4. The Gold Pass may not be commercialized in any way, such as being offered as a bonus in connection with the rental of accommodations. 

5. The Gold Pass may not be resold to another individual. 

6. The Gold Pass will not be honored for summer activities. 


In the 2012-13 ski season, U.S. Ski & Snowboard made advancements in order to grant you the most widely accepted and technologically advanced pass in the country. The RFID Gold Pass is the first of its kind, leveraging UHF technology, HF technology and barcode scanning all within one pass. These technologies have made it possible for Gold Pass holders to experience direct-to-lift skiing and snowboarding at over 250 resorts across the country.


No athlete reaches the podium alone. It takes family, friends, coaches, wax technicians and resort partners to reach the top. Each year resorts across the country not only strive to provide unique guests experiences but also are invested in the development and growth of grassroots and local club programs to support our elite athletes.
