​How will I get my 2021-22 pass?

If you purchased a senior or military pass, you will have to pick up that pass in person at the start of the 2021-22 season to verify that you qualify.

If you renewed a 20-21 season pass, please hang onto it! You can use it next season; your new pass will automatically be loaded onto it.

For all other passes, your pass will be mailed USPS with free shipping. Those choosing the $49 deposit will not get their pass until after they have paid in full. More details on timing as we get closer to the 21-22 winter season.


Why are pass sales limited for the 2021-22 season?

Read this blog post from our COO, Alan, for complete details.


What about the free days at other ski areas?

Arapahoe Basin 2021-22 full-season passes come with 3 FREE days, each, at Taos Ski Valley in Taos, NM, 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. CLICK HERE FOR INFO.


What if the winter ski/ride season is shortened? 

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.


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.

We do not issue partial refunds on partly used Any Day passes. EX: If you purchase a 4-day pass and only use 2 days, you will not receive a refund for your unused days.


How do I get discount A-Basin 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. Please do not bring someone with you who does not have a valid pass or pre-purchased ticket.


What if I lose my 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.


How do I get my uphill access pass?

Sign in to your store account to reserve the pass for free (full-season passholders, only, all others can purchase it on our store) and sign the uphill waiver. Pick it up as soon as you can from a ticket window, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. daily. Please do not re-use the uphill pass from the previous season. If you are unfamiliar with our uphill policies, review this page


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

In most cases, yes. You can apply what you spent on an Any Day pass to a full-season pass for the same season 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, i.e. upgrading a 21-22 Any Day product to a 21-22 midweek pass.


Will unused Any Day Pass days from 2020-21 roll over into the 21-22 season?

No.  These passes are season-specific, non-transferable, and non-refundable.
