Please bring a copy of your purchase confirmation email to the Snow Summit ticket windows on July 4. You will be issued a color-coded wristband indicating your chairlift and dining venue for the event. Guests with blue wristbands will ride Chair 1 and dine at Skyline Taphouse, while guests with red wristbands will ride Chair 2 and be served at Hog on the Rocks, with both venues serving identical menu items.

There will be two viewing areas for the Fireworks Spectacular, with matching amenities and live music at both locations. Guests may choose either location, but are encouraged to arrive early to allow for enough time to eat and find seating. Daniel Bonte & The Bona Fide will be playing at the Chair 1 viewing area with Honey Country playing at the Chair 2 viewing area.

To provide the best experience and quickest download possible, at the conclusion of the Fireworks Spectacular we ask that guests take the same chairlift they rode at the beginning of the evening. For more information, see FAQ below or call 844.GO2.BEAR.
