Epic / IKON Corporate Promo




In a nutshell

If you have an Epic or IKON pass and are associated with or know someone at the 97 participating companies or universities, ie, The List, you can claim up to $150 ski bus savings coupons. If you got both passes, it's $300 for you.


Friends & Family Plan

If your company or university is not on The List, don't worry! You can still take advantage of our Friends & Family Plan. Simply have a ski buddy, friend, or family member who works for or is a student at one of the companies or universities vouch for you. Follow the steps outlined:

1. Have your friend send an email using his/her company or school email to info@nacski.com confirming your relationship. If work email is not allowed for personal use, an employee / student ID can also be used as proof of affiliation.

2. Get your friend to register on our website using your referral link (My account | Refer Friends).

Once both steps are completed, notify us, and follow the normal claim procedure. Please visit our booking page and pay the $0.50 coupon processing fee where their company / school logo is displayed. We will process your $150 coupons claim as if you were their employee / student and reward your friend with a one-time $20 coupon as a thank you.

These 97 companies have a combined workforce of nearly 9 million people, chances are, you know someone there. By the way, your friend doesn't even have to be in the Bay Area!

Where are my coupons?

After completing all the necessary steps, it normally takes 3 business days to process your coupon claim. Once processed, you can find the coupons under:

My account
Account Balance

If you do not see the coupons there, it is likely that you have missed some required steps. The most common issues include:

1. Not paying the $0.5 coupon processing fee.
2. Not providing your complete pass purchasing order confirmation or submitting a partial screenshot.
3. Forgetting to update your NAC SKI account profile or having a profile that does not match the pass receipt in name, address or pass type.


I have both Epic and IKON passes

Then you can claim 2 sets of bus savings coupons. For example, you work for Starbucks, which is one of the 97 companies on The List, and you have a Tahoe Local Pass and IKON Base pass, you get $150 x 2 = $300 in ski bus coupons.

Same goes if you have both passes and you don't work for any of the 97 companies on The List, but you know someone who does, and he/she is willing to vouch for you, you are all set to claim $300 savings coupons.

Can a round trip bus ticket be used on different days?

Short Answer: No.

Long Answer: Round trip bus tickets are good for the day of the trip.

For example, if you plan to ski for Saturday at resort A and Sunday at Resort B, to use our service, you need to check our "Day trips" tap, to make sure we have trips to the two resorts on the two days you had in mind. Then you need to book a 1-way resort bound bus ticket on the Saturday trip to resort A and book a 1-way home bound bus ticket on the Sunday trip for resort B.

Early Bird: $69
Regular: $79
Full fare: $89 = Regular + $10 late booking charge


How to secure $69 bus fare ?

Short Answer: Don't wait, book early while it is still $69.

Long Answer: In California, most ski trips have 3 bus fares:

Early Booking Rate: $69
Regular Rate: $79
Late booking: $89



On each bus, the first 10 to 15 seats are priced at $69. The regular rate is $79. Late booking is $89.

My account | Order History | change pick-up location
My account | Order History | e boarding pass





Can I buy lift ticket only?

No. NAC SKI is not a ticket re-seller therefore we do not sell lift ticket without the bus fare. If you forgot to order a lift ticket or other product, you can place a second order, at the checkout ignore the warning message as long as your prior order has the bus ticket(s).


Are we on the same bus?

My friends and I booked the same trip with the same Trip ID but we will board at different locations. Are we on the same bus?

YES. If you two have the same Trip ID, you are on the same physical bus. Let's take a look at the naming convention of a Trip ID. Example:

CA-NSTR-R-040514-N1

CA - State code for California
NSTR - Resort code for Northstar
R - Regular public trip
040514 - April 5th, 2014 is the trip date
N1 - #1 bus for this resort on this day

If we send 2 buses to the same resort on the same day, they will have different Trip IDs:

CA-NSTR-R-040514-N1
CA-NSTR-R-040514-N2



when do I get my ski ticket, rental equipment?

Short Answer: At the resort

Long Answer: When the bus arrives at the resort, the tour lead will get the tickets and rental vouchers and hand them out to the passengers by name.




Child on board

Children under 3 are not allowed to board the bus for safety reason. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by adult. Passengers age 13-17 traveling alone require signed parental consent form. All ski resort requires parent/guardian to sign for a minor when renting equipment. Therefore parent/guardian must accompany their children if they need rental equipments.

Detailed instructions can be found at the end of the document:
Parental Consent Form.


I'd return on another day

Yes, this option is available by booking one way bus fare to the resort one day and return on another day. The one way bus fare will be available on a trip once a trip has met the minimum passenger requirement. There is some rules that apply. 1. The trips that you book one way bus fare must be confirmed since unconfirmed buses are subject to cancellation. The terms and conditions state for bus cancellations, that in such event, NAC SKI will issue full refund to all the paid passengers within 6 hours of such decision. I/WE will not hold NAC SKI responsible for any cost incurred due to the travel plan change caused by the trip cancellation beyond the refund of my original trip booking.


Is there a waiting list?

When a trip is fully booked, it shows open seats as zero. People may still book the trip, but they will be put on the waiting list and the open seat count will show negative numbers.

If you eventually don't get in, you get a FULL REFUND. Gift Certificate should not be used to put you on a waiting list since they will not get replaced if you don't get in.


Sorry, I didn't get the email

Most notices from NAC SKI (weather, pickup location / time changes, etc.) will be communicated to you via email, therefore it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to maintain an active email address with sufficient capacity, and free from any blocking and filtering and always check your email several times before any trip. Avoid using hotmail or msn, we have observed multiple cases where customers complained not receiving order confirmation emails.


Can my friend take my place?

Yes, You can change the passenger name any time prior to the trip:

Log in | My Account | Order History | change passenger name

Gold Member is not allowed to have others take your place.


I booked for me and my friend, does he need a boarding pass?

No. When you purchase multiple trip packages, it is indicated on our trip roster and on your boarding pass. So, your friend(s) do not need a boarding pass or driver's license as long as you have your photo ID and your boarding pass that shows the number of tickets you bought. To minimize confusion, we strongly suggest that all members in your party board the bus together at the same pickup location.


Refund Policy

If NAC SKI cancels a trip, we will issue FULL REFUND within 6 hours..

During the trip




Lost & Found

Within 2 business days after the trip, the tour lead files the trip report. If any personal items was found, it will be indicated on the trip report. Then we will send a lost & found notice email to all passengers on the bus. If the item bellows to you, you should claim it online by giving detailed descriptions:

Log in | My account | Order History | lost & found

Once we establish that you are the rightful owner, we will put you in touch with the tour lead for you to pick up your item. We don't ship. If you don't see our email notification regarding lost & found after 2 business days. It means our tour lead did not recover anything. In this case, you should contact the charter bus company to see if their driver or cleaning crew have recovered it. Just give them the trip date and ski resort name. You can find the charter bus company's name on your boarding pass and google it to find their contact information.

Child on board

Children under 3 are not allowed to board the bus under any circumstances. Children under 12 must be accompanied by someone over 15 years of age. Ski resort requires parent/guardian to sign for a minor when renting gears, therefore parent/guardian must accompany their children if they need rentals. Passengers regardless of age must have a seat by law. Bus fare for children and adults are the same.


Can I park there?

Most pickup locations either have parking space available or have easy public transit access. In the case of SF Bay Area, Boston, New York, we have used the pickup locations for years without customer complains. However, NAC SKI DOES NOT assume any responsibility for vehicles being ticketed, towed, stolen or otherwise damaged.

One-way trips?

You can take a one-way trip. This either involves a bus ride only, or a full package. If you are planning to meet friends or family and stay and therefore not return home on the bus, please notify the bus's tour leader so that they can adjust the headcount for the ride home accordingly.
