Over the last few seasons, improving the guest experience and adding value to the time you spend at Cascade have been a few of our main goals. Limited ticket sales give you more time on the slopes and less time in the lift line and ticket pick up boxes making picking up your ticket a breeze, but what can we do to improve efficiency in places like the snack bar and other retail locations? After a lot of careful consideration, we think we have a solution. Starting this season, Cascade Mountain will be a completely cashless business.
We will only be accepting credit, debit, and Cascade physical or electronic gift cards as forms of payment. Not having to handle cash or give change will help our cashiers keep lines moving quickly.
No worries, we'll have Cash-2-Card self-service kiosks located in the Peak Lodge, Sports Shop, Tube Town, and Daisy. These kiosks act as reverse ATMs, meaning you put cash in, and receive a prepaid card that can be used anywhere that cards are accepted, not just at Cascade! There are no activation fees, meaning that the amount you put in is the amount that you get back, just a $3.95 dormancy fee every 93 days of inactivity.
Removing cash transactions and the processes that come with cash handling will allow us to dedicate even more of our time to what's important, making your day great.
