Lessons are 10am-3pm. Advance lessons may also be purchased at the Ski School. Ski lesson reservations, fees and all lessons are provided by the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation.

Lift Tickets: New This Year – Your Dickson Productions Wristband comes equipped with your lift pass built-in. This means faster, smoother access to lifts, more time on the slope and no more paper lift tickets or keeping up with cards.


  • Wristbands are valuable and should be treated like cash.  Should your band become Loose or damaged, for replacement,  you must have the wristband in hand and bring it to Dickson Productions desk.  If you do not have your original wristband, you will receive NO reimbursement.  We strongly recommend you take a photo of your Wristband immediately upon receiving for your records.
  • Additional days may be purchased only at the Main Ticket Office In One Steamboat Place for $65/day.  You must present your  MusicFest wristband to purchase.

Wristbands are issued at check-in and must be worn the entire week. This is your ticket to all exclusive DP activities, discounts, and concerts by Dickson Productions, as well as your 4-day lift pass. If broken, take the broken wristband to a Dickson Productions representative for a replacement.  WRISTBANDS WILL NOT BE REPLACED IF LOST OR STOLEN OR TAMPERED WITH IN ANY WAY.

Damage and Credit Card Authorization: Upon checking in, the room leader will need to put a credit card on file for any incidentals. Within one hour of checking-in to your room, report any item that is broken or out of order. If not reported to your hotel, you may be held responsible for past tenant’s damages.  Each unit will be checked prior to your departure and damage settlements made before you checkout.  You and your roommates must pay all phone and miscellaneous charges before departing or RISK CHARGES ON YOUR CARD. If you and your roommates do not meet all of the reservations requirements as outlined in Dickson Productions’ MusicFest Tour Terms & Conditions (“Agreement”) or by the hotel, you risk obtaining incremental charges. Clean up-charges may apply where applicable.
