With great uncertainty for the future, Vermont ski areas have implemented various refund and savings policies for future season pass products. Below is a list of current season pass options, benefits and savings.
The 2020-21 All Terrain Season Pass benefits are valid from the time of purchase until the end of the 2020-21 Season. You’re welcome to use them as often as you’d like. Benefits are for the pass holder only and do not apply to getting discounts for friends or family.
Should the 2020-21 winter season be negatively impacted by the COVID-19 / coronavirus global pandemic, Bolton Valley has determined the following policy for 3 hypothetical scenarios, should they occur:
1. If closed for the entire 2020-21 winter season: Your pass will be deferred to the following season (2021-22). No cash refunds. Like product for like product. Not transferable. If you’d like to upgrade your pass product, your previous year’s purchase will serve as a credit toward that purchase (i.e. would like to go from a Night Pass to an All Terrain Day & Night Pass)
2. If we have a 2020-21 season shorter than 11 weeks: If we have a season that is shorter than 11 weeks (equivalent of Christmas though mid March) then for each week that the season is shorter than 11, you will get 10% off the purchase of your 2021-22 season pass. Example: If our 2020-21 season is 9 weeks – you will get 20% off your 2021-22 season pass.
3. If Bolton Valley is open, but your are uncomfortable coming to the mountain due to the coronavirus / COVID-19 and will not use your pass you must notify Bolton Valley by 12/01/20. You must not have skied on your pass. If you meet these two conditions, Bolton Valley will turn off your pass for the year and you will get 80% off your purchase applied to your 2021-22 season pass purchase.

2019-2020 Passholders: Due to the shortened season Burke is offering credits for all things Burke, including purchase of your 2020-21 pass. If your household pass purchase last year was $489 or more you will receive a $100 credit. All other pass purchases will receive a $50 credit.
Burke has also extended Tier 1 pricing to June 8 and is extending a no-questions-asked full refund or credit policy for all pass purchases made through June 8.

Jay Peak’s season passes usually come with a "no refund" policy (which is waived in the event of an injury, etc.). Given the circumstances and the uncertainty we're all feeling, Jay will allow refunds, for any reason, through October 1, 2020.
If you purchase by the early deadline to benefit from the most affordable rate, you can still ask for a complete refund at any time up to October 1, 2020.
In the unlikely scenario that Jay Peak can't open for the 2020-21 ski & ride season, you can choose to be fully refunded or defer the value of your pass to the 2021-22 season.

In response to COVID-19 and the uncertain economic times this spring:
Magic has lowered season pass prices up to 10% just for this Early Bird sales period compared to last year’s Early Bird pricing to give some relief to customers.
Unlimited Passes will be reduced 10% vs last Spring
Lower-priced Specialty and Vermonter Passes will be reduced 5% vs last Spring!
The Early Bird Sales period has been extended by one month to June 15 to give extra time for those who’d like to take advantage of the deep discounts (save up to $160/pass vs. the next “Pre-season” sales period from June 16-October 15 and up to $260 vs “Regular Season” pass prices after October 15, 2020.
Although season passes, as always, remain non-refundable, Magic will provide full credit for a new 2021-22 season pass if the government closes ski areas for the season before our 2020-21 opening day due to COVID-19. Some partial credit toward a future season pass will be given if the season is shut down early before February 1, 2021. Therefore, your Early Bird pass investment is protected.
Magic has also introduced its first payment plan option for spreading your Early Bird pass payment over 2 installments when purchased online—half down now and the second half automatically billed to your credit card on September 1, 2020.
There are also three new passes: 1) expanded Service pass to include first responders (active duty police, fire EMS), nurses and ER/ICU doctors in addition to military personnel in recognition of their sacrifices during the pandemic; 2) One Big family flat-rate pass to help families with more than 2 children; and 3) an additional locals pass for any Vermonter who does not have school-age children.
A Magic season pass purchase also provides pass holders the opportunity to get an Indy Pass starting this September 1 at a special discount, just $129 ($199 without a pass) which gives two days of free skiing in 20/21 at over 60 indie ski areas around the country. (Indy Pass is not owned by Magic Mountain and is a separate company offering these services with their own policies on their passes.)

Holders of eligible 2020-21 local resort pass products are entitled to Adventure Assurance. Adventure Assurance enables purchases of eligible 2020-21 local resort pass products to be bought with confidence, knowing the pass holder can defer use of their 2020-21 local pass product and elect to exchange it for a credit to be applied toward their purchase of the same or, to the extent the same pass product is not offered for sale in the 2021-22 winter season, an equivalent local resort pass product offered for sale for the 2021-22 winter season.
