Do I have to purchase online? No, if you are more comfortable, you can call the Activity Center at 208-255-3081 and the friendly folks there can help you with your ticket purchase. However, any tickets sold on Eventbrite outside of Activity Center hours may affect the number of tickets available for us to sell you. Basically, if you want to secure those tickets now then you're best off purchasing them here.
What is your refund policy? Sorry, there are no refunds. This is a sellout party every year and we’d hate to have any spots go unused with all the folks we turn away each year. Space is limited, so hurry and buy your tickets today!
What does my ticket to Stella NYE include? Besides entry of course, your ticket includes drink specials, free late night pizza, party favors, and a special cider toast of Stella Cidre at midnight.
What does a VIP ticket include? The VIP ticket includes all the fun things as a regular ticket PLUS Stella Cidre VIP Corner guests will have their own private bar and bartender, 2 free drinks per person, exclusive appetizers, reserved seating, and their own Stella Cidre or champagne delivery for the toast at midnight. Because of the limited number of tables they will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Don’t wait, they will sell out fast! Party like a rockstar!
What do I need at the Stella party entrance? ALL guests will need to show their ID to get in the door of the party and bring their printed Eventbrite ticket. Otherwise, just bring your positive party attitude for a good time!
Can I reserve seats? Sorry, the seats are first come first served (unless you have purchased VIP Stella tickets). We do not allow anyone to save seats as that just wouldn’t be fair to the other early birds now would it?
What should I wear? Dress for a party! Okay, maybe that’s a bit vague. Most people choose to dress up just a bit. We’re not talking ball gowns and black tie, but perhaps a nice shirt. This is the perfect time to wear that sequin shirt in your closet!
Will there be food? We will have snacks throughout the evening and complimentary pizza at 11pm to help keep you fueled up through midnight. The snacks are included in the price, so save your cash for drinks!
The Taps party sounds fun, but what do I do with my kids on New Year’s? Schweitzer hosts FOUR New Year’s celebrations each year. We have a Tween party for kids ages 6-11, a late night family friendly tubing party, the 21+ party in Taps of course, and a midnight sparkler celebration for EVERYONE! Tickets are required for all but the midnight sparkler celebration so be sure to hurry and buy them before they sell out.
I don’t think I want to drive the road to/ from Schweitzer. How do I get home? If you show your ticket confirmation, Schweitzer shuttle drivers will let you ride up the mountain at no charge! Please check the bus schedule on http://www.schweitzer.com/mountain/shuttle-parking/ so you know exactly when to come. Staying at Hotel Ruby? SPOT bus now has a pick up right at the Ruby which will take you to the Schweitzer shuttle system and avoid all driving! After the party, a specially scheduled concert bus will be heading down the mountain at 1am so you can stay and party till after midnight! After stopping at the Park and Ride lot at the bottom of the mountain, the 1am bus will continue on to the newly renovated Hotel Ruby located on Hwy 95 in Ponderay so party goers who’ve booked rooms at the hotel can get a free ride all the way to their rooms! Hotel Ruby is offering rooms starting at $65 per night—what a great deal!
Is there other lodging nearby? Yes, the Selkirk Lodge offers lodging right in Schweitzer village. But don’t dilly dally……lodging sells out every year! You can get more information and book a room at www.schweitzer.com
