Are lift tickets required?
Yes and no! Lift tickets are required to enjoy the 50% off draft beer perk, but all are welcome to enjoy the Ferndale Project events and winter experiences and pay full price without a lift ticket. Pick up your lift ticket when you arrive.
Will there be food?
Our full food menu is available all month but throughout Après Ski, our awesome culinary team will be featuring a special ski-themed menu. S’mores and hot chocolate available all month and beer-themed cocktails and mulled wine available on the weekends! 50% off mulled wine with lift ticket. Food is not included in the lift ticket or 50% off promotion.
I love this event! Can I spend the whole season on the Ferndale Project patio?
Yes! This year we are offering season-long “lift tickets” so you can receive 50% off draft beer ALL MONTH long. Elephant Parade members also get FREE Après Ski season “lift tickets!”
It’s going to be cold outside. How will we keep warm?
We encourage you to grab your favorite ski clothes and BUNDLE UP for this event. However, you can enjoy your brews and food inside too! We’ll also have heaters, fire pits, and cozy, hot drinks to help keep you toasty.
What beers will be included in the 50% off?
All draft beer will be included from Ferndale Project and Eastern Market Brewing Co. Note, half-off beer is a crazy deal and takes precedence over other discounts (happy hour, etc.). Mulled wine is available on the weekend and 50% off with lift ticket.
Do you need to be 21+ to attend?
Nope! Well of course you need to be 21+ to enjoy the 50% off draft beer, but all are welcome. We’ll have cozy s’mores and non-alcoholic drinks. Note, non-alcoholic drinks are still full price.
