Ski-n-Ride Overview

 

Ride the bus. Hit the slopes.

 

You love to ski, snowboard, or tube. But chances are, you don’t always love driving to the hill. 

 

That’s where BATA comes in.

 

Our Ski-n-Ride program makes transportation easier for everyone who loves the snow – students, families, area visitors, and more. The Ski-n-Ride program is offered to and from the area’s most popular ski and snowboarding venues, including Crystal Mountain, The Homestead, Mt. Holiday, Timber Ridge and Hickory Hills.
