Maybe during a holiday break or long weekend. The perfect gift for your family visiting from out of town this winter, or someone who frequents northern Michigan.

Pick Your Happiness Card Type

When are you planning on skiing for the first time? Will it be a midweek day (Sunday-Friday), a peak day (Saturday/holiday), or at night? This decision will determine the initial Happiness Card type you select. 

After selecting your card type during the check out process, you'll be prompted to select the number of pre-loaded dates you'd like on your Happiness Card. (You can add on any type of ski dates to your card AFTER the initial card purchase.)

All days on Happiness Cards MUST be used by the end of the winter 2021/22 season or they expire. There is no refund for unused days.

Open-to-close add-on days for the Happiness Card are date specific, and if you select more than 1 day ticket to add-on, the days need to be used consecutively (unlike the initial Happiness Card you purchased that allows non-consecutive usage). If you're not looking to ski consecutively with your add-on dates, select 1 day ticket and pick your date on the calendar, and add to your cart. You can repeat this process for each day you'd like added on your card.
