A-Basin Pass FAQ

Who gets a renewal rate on what product? Note the last day for the renewal rate is May 10, 2023. 

If you own one of the following products from the 2022-23 season, you can purchase a 2023-24 A-Basin Unrestricted Full Season adult pass OR a 2023-24 A-Basin Midweek Season adult pass at the renewal rate:

  • Full-Season adult
  • Sunday-Only adult
  • No-Saturday adult
  • Midweek or Midweek Plus adult
  • Fall Pass adult

There are no renewal rates for youth, child, military, senior, or fall passes. While supplies last.


How will I get my 2023-24 pass?

Passes will not be mailed. Please re-use your 22-23 Basin Card if you have one! 

  • If you had a 22-23 season pass product, you can re-use your Basin Card! Your new, 23-24 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 2023 season, or on your first day of skiing/riding at the start of the Winter 23-24 season. 
  • MULTI-DAY PACKS: You can get your pack from the ticket kiosks in our base area (Mountain Goat Plaza).
  • Military, College, Youth, Child, and Senior products require proof of service / enrollment / age at the time of pickup and must be collected in-person from the Guest Services office or a ticket window. 
  • Unused 22-23 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 2023.

How does the Affirm payment plan work?

2023-24 passes and packs costing $149 or more are eligible for payment plans through Affirm by qualifying purchasers. Affirm is a third-party payment plan provider that manages payment plans for a variety of goods and services sold online. Plans will vary by customer.

We are no longer offering the $49 deposit. 


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. 


Are Multi-Day Pack days transferrable or 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 2024?

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 ‘24 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?

There are changes for the upcoming season, including blackouts on historically busy dates. Blackout dates and usage details will be updated closer to the 2023-24 season. 


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 from 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? 

A-Basin discount friends and family tickets MUST be purchased online in advance via A-Basin's eStore. These tickets are not sold on-site and we sell out in advance of some weekends.

NEW FOR 2023-24: Ikon friends and family tickets MUST be purchased in advance online using a voucher obtained from Ikon's website, first. Tickets must be bought online from our website in advance; we do not sell lift tickets on-site.


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 2022-23 roll over into the 2023-24 season?

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