A-Basin Pass FAQ

How will I get my 2022-23 pass?

Passes will NOT be mailed. Here’s what to do:

  • If you had a 21-22 season pass product, you can re-use your Basin Card! Your new, 22-23 pass product will automatically be loaded onto it. Just head straight to the lift next season. 
  • You can pick up your pass at a ticket window during our Summer 2022 season, or on your first day of skiing/riding at the start of the Winter 22-23 season. 
  • Military, College, Youth, Child, and Senior products require proof of service / enrollment / age at the time of pickup. 
  • Unused 21-22 days do not carry over. 
  • Only one of your pass cards will be valid / active at one time.
  • UPHILL PASSES: Will be available once uphill access opens for the season, sometime in Fall/Winter 2022.

How does the $49 deposit work?

The $49 deposit reserves your pass at the lowest price of the season (not available on all products). DEPOSIT IS NON-REFUNDABLE. You will be charged the remaining pass price amount on September 9, 2022 to the credit card that you use to make your initial purchase. If you need to change your payment method or cancel prior to that date, please give us a call: 888-272-7246. 

  • If you do not make your final balance payment, your pass purchase will be cancelled.
  • If you added on an uphill pass, and do not pay in full for the season pass, the uphill pass will also be cancelled.

Why are pass sales limited? 

Sales of unlimited, unrestricted passes are capped in order to limit crowding and provide guests with a better experience. This is also why Ikon Passes are limited to 7 days at most, and our daily lift tickets are also limited. Enjoy shorter lift lines and easier parking.


How do the Midweek Plus Pass weekend days work?

You can ski/ride any two weekend days (Saturday/Sunday) of your choosing. No blackout dates. Do not have to be consecutive. These days are NON-TRANSFERRABLE i.e. only the Midweek Pass holder can use those extra weekend days. You can only add 2 weekend days one time, i.e. you cannot "reload" weekend days on your Midweek Pass. 


Are Multi-Day/Fall/College Pack days transferrable / shareable? 

No. Multi-Day Packs are photo-pass products tied to a specific individual. You cannot share pack days. We do not sell transferrable ticket packs. 


What is my best option for visiting to ski/ride in Spring 2023?

Purchase a Multi-Day Pack before they sell out to get 3-5 days at the best price. We will not sell a Spring Pass and anticipate that Multi-Day Packs will sell out many months prior to the Spring ‘23 ski/ride season. 

You will spend significantly more purchasing single-day lift tickets so plan ahead if you want to visit in the spring (or whenever; planning ahead and buying early always saves you money). 


What about the free days at other ski areas?

Arapahoe Basin 2022-23 full-season passes (includes Military) come with 3 FREE days, each, at Taos Ski Valley in Taos, NM; Bridger Bowl in Bozeman, MT; and Monarch Mountain in Salida, CO. Your pass also includes 2 FREE weekdays at Bluebird Backcountry near Kremmling, CO, plus 1 FREE unguided day of spring skiing at Silverton Mountain in Colorado. Some blackout dates apply. KNOW BEFORE YOU GO.


What is the A-Basin refund policy? 

Arapahoe Basin pass products are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE under ANY circumstances including, but not limited to, unplanned closures, snow conditions, weather, natural disasters, pandemics or other acts of God.

Arapahoe Basin has a long season, typically October to June. That said, we never guarantee the length of our season. Historically, we have had years when our season opened later or closed early due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances. Because we do not and cannot guarantee the length of a season, we do not refund season passes.

We do not issue partial refunds on partly used Multi-Day, Fall, or College Packs. EX: If you purchase a 4-day pack and only use 2 days, you will not receive a refund for your unused days, and those days will not carry over to the next season. We will also not issue any kind of refunds on Fall products if we open later than usual (we do not have a set opening day). We open when we can and as soon as we can but see above about working with Mother Nature. 


How do I get discount A-Basin / Ikon friends tickets?

These MUST be purchased in advance online.

Visit our ticket e-store to purchase discounted passholder tickets. Your active A-Basin season pass card number will be required to activate the discount. These cannot be purchased onsite. Be sure to assign the ticket(s) to the individual(s) who will be visiting. If you assign a ticket to yourself, it might deactivate your pass. 


What if I lose my A-Basin pass? Can you print my Ikon Pass?

We will re-print your A-Basin or Ikon Pass for free one time. After the first time, there will be a $5 charge each time you need your pass to be re-issued.  


Can I get a senior pass if I’m not 70 years old yet but will be next ski season?

You must be 70+ years old at the time of purchase to qualify for a senior pass. ​


Can I upgrade a limited pass to a full-season pass?

In most cases, yes. You can apply what you spent on a Multi-Day Pack to a full-season pass for the same season but ONLY IF the full-season pass is still available. You will pay whatever the pass price is at the time of your upgrade. Only valid in the same season.


Will unused Multi-Day Pack days from 2021-22 roll over into the 2022-23 season?

No. All A-Basin passes are season-specific, non-transferable, and non-refundable.
