For those flying on Alaska Airlines this winter for a ski trip, you are in luck! Alaska Airlines has partnered again with 13 ski resorts where you can get a free lift ticket just by showing your boarding pass. Just make sure to keep your Alaska Airlines boarding pass, or print out extra copies, and show your pass at the mountains sale office to redeem your complimentary lift ticket. This is by far one of the best ways to ski for free!

Note: Some of the offers are not yet updated for the 2019/2020 dates, but with winter approaching soon, we should see them available soon.
