The 9th annual Turkey for a Ticket is Friday, Dec. 11 at Big Sky Resort. This event will once again encourage guests to give to local food banks in exchange for a FREE day of skiing. 

The 9th annual Turkey for a Ticket will be hosted by Big Sky Resort at the Madison Base Area starting at 8:30 am. The Turkey for a Ticket food-raiser will help Gallatin Valley Food Bank, Madison Valley Food Bank, and the Big Sky Food Bank to provide food for people and families in need this holiday season. As the holidays approach, the need from our area food banks increases.

Participants will receive a free lift ticket valid for December 11 in exchange for a minimum 13 pound frozen turkey OR 20 cans of non-perishable food. Specific canned items the Food Bank's are in need of are fruit, tuna, chili, tomato sauce, and soups.

Gold, Bronze, and Moonlight Area Season Pass holders are encouraged to give in exchange for a $20 Moonride demo ski or snowboard rental to be used between December 11 - 25, 2015 (a regular demo ski rental is $69).
