Question: Will my Season Pass be refunded?
In recognition of the abbreviated 2019-20 season and economic uncertainties caused by the Coronavirus outbreak, Aspen Snowmass is issuing all 2019-20 passholders credit to apply towards 2020-2021 purchases. You may log in to your account to view your credit amount. Credits are valid on all Aspen Snowmass summer and winter passes, lift tickets, activities, rentals, and lessons, including season pass deposits and full purchases, through April 30, 2021. Credits are not valid for on-mountain dining or hotel stays at Limelight or The Little Nell properties. Credits do not have to be used in full at the time of purchase. Credits are valid on online, over-the-phone and in-person purchases. Credits cannot be redeemed for cash. Credits for Chamber passes are being issued to the business that purchased the pass, not the individual passholder.

If you're able to give back at this time or want to donate your pass credit to our COVID-19 Community Relief Fund, the Aspen Skiing Company Family Foundation is also matching donations up to $250K through July 15 in order to support our local community.

Question: How can I help support the Aspen Snowmass and Roaring Fork Valley community during these difficult times?
