Sun Valley, Chamber revive business pass

The Sun Valley-Ketchum Chambers and the Sun Valley Resort have partnered once again to offer transferrable ski passes to local employers. The transferrable ski pass program has proven to be a valuable employee benefit for businesses. New for the 08-09 season is a 20 day transferrable pass available for $1,000. The transferrable season pass will continue to be available for $2,500.

The revenues from the transferrable ski pass program are divided equally to support the Fly Sun Valley Air Service Opportunity Fund for the Horizon Minimum Revenue Guarantee (MRG), and a new daily motor coach bus transportation to and from Boise for the 08-09 winter season.

Transferrable ski passes allow more than one person to use the pass throughout the season. Passes can be purchased by calling Stefany Mahoney, Membership Services Director at 725-2105.
