Mountain Discovery Pass: What You Need To Know
The Mountain Discovery Pass is an exclusive gift that the Carolina Mornings Team gives to our guests as an introduction to the area and a choice few of its amazing amenities! To better acquaint those who have yet to enjoy the experience, we’ve put together a small FAQ Sheet. Read on to learn all you need to know about this fantastic gift!
Frequently Asked Questions:
We’re staying for 4 days, can we all get our included tickets in one day?
The included tickets are non-cumulative and unused tickets expire daily. In other words, one person can go every single day (including the day of check-out), but you cannot use all of the tickets in one day.
While we understand that in most cases your group will all want to attend together, we do hope that you find the value of the one-pass ticket to be beneficial! Additionally, the more activities you attend during your stay, the larger your savings will be!Back to Top
Why can’t I go river rafting in October?
Most of the activities involved in our Mountain Discovery Pass are seasonal and are limited in availability by our partner companies at their request. Weather plays a large role in river rafting, as you can imagine, and we cannot expect that rafting will be available any time after Sept 30th.
The Biltmore Estate is open all year round, however, with seasonal activities in constant rotation!
I’m coming in November and the only seasonally available activity is the Biltmore, can I have extra tickets to make up for the rafting that aren’t available?
Our partner companies provide us with the included tickets that we offer to you. We are unable to offer additional tickets to any one activity. The Biltmore Estate is positively beautiful in November - we might suggest that you spend extra time exploring the grounds and restaurants!
We don’t want to use our MDP, can we have money off of our reservation?
The Mountain Discovery Pass is a gift given at no cost to you! It is our way of introducing you to the beauty of our amazing area, and our partner company’s way to introduce your group to their local attractions. We cannot give a discount on your reservation, but the pass will still be available for you to use in case you change your plans!
I have 8 people in my party so I need more than one pass for these activities.
The MDP is a gift that we give to our guests to help offset the cost of some of our area’s best activities, and is our partner company’s way to introduce your group to their local attractions. We are only able to provide one pass per activity. Additional tickets are available for purchase, so please inquire!
Can I use my passes on the day that I check out?
Yes! The Mountain Discovery Pass is available for guests from the day of their arrival until and including the day of departure. Feel free to get last minute experiences in as you head out from our wonderful Western North Carolina region!
