Silver Mountain wants you to be a jackass.

The North Idaho ski resort first opened in 1968 under the name Jackass Ski Bowl, and to celebrate the resort's 50th birthday, Silver Mountain is offering $12 lift tickets all day on Friday, Jan. 5.

They're calling it Jackass Day, and those lift tickets will also be good for night skiing until 9 pm, and you can tube a little extra from 5-7 pm if sliding down the hill on rubber tubes instead of skis is more your thing.

There will be some other festivities Friday, including the Jams 4 Cans Rail Jam starting at 7 pm, a Retro Outfit Contest at 8 pm, fireworks at 9 pm and live tunes in both the Moguls and Noah's Canteen watering holes on the mountain.

Now start practicing your scratchy voice for when you call the boss in the morning.
