I gave up my ski pass for 20-21

I can't believe it, but I gave up my Killington pass today for a full refund. With travel restrictions and quarantine requirements, it doesn't make sense for a day-tripper to have a pass in Vermont while living in another state. Killington has stopped selling their Express Cards (discount card for individual day tickets), so that is not an option if Covid restrictions are lifted in the future.

Gore/Whiteface is still an option, but they are NY State owned properties. With a stroke of the governor's pen, the season could end. I'll buy an Empire Card, the NY version of the discounted day ticket. If I can ski just 3 days, it pays for itself.

What's your plan?

This is the first year in a long time that I did not buy an Epic pass. I live in Michigan and do not plan on travelling out West this year, so the cost of the pass is not worth it. I was looking into some passes locally, but with all the uncertainty I decided to just go with day tickets this year. Definitely a different year for me.

We are very glad we did not get a season pass for Snowshoe in WV. Had planned to do day passes in PA but that's up in the air now. I figure it's a good year to focus on quality over quantity and skills building.

I deferred my IKON Pass to 21/22 and have yet to buy a local Epic for my "localish" PA resorts - it depends on how many weekdays I think I'll be able to ski mornings and work afternoons. I have my usual season pass for Massanutten, my home hill.

I have an Epic midweek Northeastern pass, which I can use at Hunter Mountain. If we ever get to travel I’ll take it to Okemo!

I also have an Empire card And plans to ski with some New Yorkers! I’ve been thinking of getting a pass at little Thunder Ridge (Paterson, NY), which is just a half hour and I might be able to put my granddaughter on skis. She won’t last for a longer ride to Hunter and back. All my skiing will be midweek. If we can ski.

I plan to defer my Ikon pass as well. With travel restrictions and the likelihood of resorts shutting down for the season, it doesn't make sense to not defer. If resorts in New York, I'll probably do a few day trips to Windham or a weekend at Gore.

I'm glad IKON is allowing deferment until April- I may just do that. I will wait and see. I cancelled my December trip West. Still hanging on hopes for a Jan/Feb trip West but doesn't look good.
I'd love to go back to mammoth in June! But maybe that will be included on the 2021-22 pass- if I defer?

For now I'll be satisfied that I have my NYS Gore/Whiteface/Bellayre pass, Gore's only an hour from my house, I grew up there, know the mt well, last winter was nice to go ski mornings and be able to go back and do some work in the afternoon. My local Bump Royal Mt is going to be open for 3 day weekends and holidays. Lapland Lake XC is 10minutes from my house so I can go there and I can make snowshoe trails on my property. I'll make the best of it (begrudgingly)

Safe rather than dead is my motto for this winter.

I plan to defer my Ikon pass. Since we have until April to do so, there is no sense of urgency, but I have no plans to travel west this year at all and that is what I buy it for mostly with some VT days thrown in too. Instead I bought a weekday pass to Wachusett and will ski exclusively in MA this year.

Didn’t buy the Ikon pass this year. I’m moving to New Mexico in a few weeks and was excited about finally getting to ski more than 15 days a season. Unfortunately the situation with hospital capacity is pretty dire and we’re already in a full lockdown.
I did get some cheap day passes at Sipapu and a weekday discount card for Ski Santa Fe just in case. Hoping things get better but I’m totally ok with waiting until next year to ski again.

We just requested a refund for our Taos Unlimited pass. We have decided to sit this season out. As much as I love skiing, it is not worth the risk. I know I will be vigilant but I cannot expect, nor do I trust others to do the same. There will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy life if we can survive this.
The only thing I am out is the cost of seasonal lockers ($1400). They said they won’t refund since it will hold my lockers until next year. I never picked up my skis from March so I guess I will just keep everything in there for now.

A seasonal locker is $1400 for one season??? Wow. I think it’s a few hundred at Sunday River where I ski.

I was very tempted to get the unlimited pass at Taos. The price for the lockers though... that’s insane.

It’s $800 each and I have 2. Took 3 years of waitlist to get them and TSV said if I don’t renew, I will have to get back in line next year. The indoor locker is valet only this year and they only allow skis and not personal items, so they discounted it by $200. The only way they will give a full refund is if the ski valley doesn’t open. At the rate covid is taking over, they may not open in 2020...
