VIP Passes & New Lottery System

New for 2019, we are pleased to introduce the VIP Lottery - your opportunity to purchase VIP tickets without racing the clock or cursing your Internet connection.

We know how stressful it is getting in our cyber line for your VIP tickets every March. After last year’s sale, we listened to your valuable feedback and decided to implement a lottery which will alleviate the pressure and allow you to secure your VIP tickets in advance if you win the lottery. We will not be offering 100% of the VIP tickets through this lottery so those not lucky enough to win will have another chance to purchase them on the usual date of March 1 at 10 am. The new system will ensure that all interested buyers have an equal and fair chance to get tickets.

To enter the lottery, participants will complete the simple online form below using their full name and email address. The lottery will be open from February 18 at 10 am (MT) through February 23 at 5 pm (MT). Entries are limited to one per email address. After the lottery closes, entries will be selected at random. Those who are selected will receive an email on February 24th between 10 am and 3 pm with a purchase code for up to two VIP Passes. Your purchase code will be valid for 72 hours from February 25 at 10 am through February 28 at 10 am. If you do not receive an email from us on February 24, you did not win the lottery (be sure to check your junk/spam folder). Any VIP tickets left over will be offered up to the public when all tickets go on sale. If you are not selected on February 24, you can try again when all tickets go on sale on March 1 at 10 am (MT).
