Adults, seniors, juniors, and children are eligible to have a WOW Card registered in their name. One card covers all eligible age categories; 6 – 74.

CAN I UPGRADE MY W.O.W. CARD TO INCLUDE DIRECT-TO-LIFT ACCESS?

Upon the first scan at the base of a Castle Mountain Resort lift, the credit card on file is billed the appropriate 50% off rate. Subsequent, same day scans DO NOT result in additional charges.

Unfortunately not. Your WOW card is non-transferable (to either another person or another season). It can only be used by one person throughout the season for which its valid. A cardholder may only register 1 card per season.

DOES THE W.O.W. CARD GET ME A DISCOUNT ON HALF DAY OR HUCKLEBERRY TICKETS?

Unfortunately not. WOW Card discounts apply only on full day, full mountain tickets unless otherwise noted.

CAN I GET A REFUND ON AN ALREADY PURCHASED, UNUSED CARD?

Wonders of Winter Cards are clearly marked as being non-refundable. No credits or exchanges will be issued under any circumstances.
