2020-21 Pass FAQ

Is my 2020-21 season pass valid during spring 2020?

No. We will offer both a spring pass for the remainder of the 2020 season and a spring Double Down pass that will work for the rest of this season and all of next season (2020-21). 

What passes are eligible for the renewal prices?

Anyone with a paid-for A-Basin season pass including adult full season, adult midweek, or a Double-Down valid during the 2019-20 season can purchase an A-Basin full season pass at the renewal rate. 

In addition, anyone with a 2019-20 Ikon Base or Ikon Pass can purchase an A-Basin full season pass at the renewal rate. Multi-day pack products (Elevation, Any-Day) do not qualify to purchase a season pass at the renewal rate. 

Is there a renewal rate for youth, child, midweek, military or senior season passes?

No. The only pass with a renewal rate is the adult full-season.

Which passes have the child season pass add-on for $119?

These 2020-21 passes: full-season, renewal full season, and midweek (NOTE: the midweek child add-on pass gives the child a full season pass that IS valid on weekends.)

How many child add-ons can I get with my adult pass?

Up to 5 children between the ages of 6-14.

Which passes are eligible for the $49 deposit program?

Only the full adult and the renewal full adult season passes. 

How does the deposit work?

Pay $49 now and pay the rest on September 10, 2020. At this time, please call or stop by in person to reserve your pass if you’re interested in this option. 888-ARAPAHOE / 1-970-468-0718.

Can I get a refund on my $49 deposit if I change my mind, get hurt or get sick?

Unfortunately, no.

When do the prices go up?

Prices are subject to change and are only guaranteed through April 30, 2020. The earlier you buy, the more you save. 

When will I get my spring 2020 or 2020-21 spring Double-Down pass? 

The spring 2020 pass will be mailed to you. Please pick up the 2020-21 spring Double-Down pass in person in our Guest Services pass office. Your Double-Down pass will have to be re-issued in fall 2020 when we switch to RFID cards. 

When will I receive my 2020-21 season pass?

Any pass that requires verification (military, college, senior, child 5 & under) must be picked up in person. We anticipate that 2020-21 passes will be available after October 1, 2020 following our switch to RFID scanning. We will keep you informed as we know more. 

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

You need to be 70+ years old at the time of purchase to qualify for a senior pass. We will sell the senior pass throughout next fall and winter, but the price will go up.

I am in college now but not next fall. Can I still buy the College 5 Pack?

No. You need to be enrolled in school and show proof of current enrollment at the time you pick up your pass in fall 2020. So, if you are just starting college/graduate school this fall semester with at least 6 credit hours but haven’t taken classes yet, you DO qualify for the College 5 Pack. Just bring proof of enrollment with you when you pick up the pass. 

How do I get my uphill access pass?

Purchase or reserve it online, here. You will have to collect it in person in our Guest Service office. If you arrive to skin/hike uphill prior to that office opening (8:00 a.m.), please have your receipt with you in case ski patrol stops you. If you are unfamiliar with our uphill policies, please review this page

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

If you purchase a 2020 fall pass and want to keep skiing after 12/14/20, you can apply what you spent on the fall pass to upgrade to a full A-Basin season pass for the same season (2020/21). You will pay whatever the pass price is at the time of your upgrade, not an earlier-season cheaper price.
