Carpool with 3 or more people in the car or else ride the UTA ski bus and you'll enjoy the benefits. Earn a few rewards on your R.I.D.E. ticket and turn it in for a beverage. Or fill up your ticket and get a 1/2 price lift ticket.

The goal is to educate skiers and riders on what they can do to reduce CO2 emissions and give them an incentive.

R.I.D.E. is an acronym for Reducing Individual Driving for the Environment.

Resorts in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyon are partnering with Protect Our Winters (POW), Breathe Utah, the National Ski Area Association Climate Challenge (NSAA), the Utah Transit Athority and Canyon Transportation

Each resort has its own spin on R.I.D.E. This program is new, so realize there could be some adjustments as the program rolls along.
