Aspen Skiing Company is providing a complimentary “Valley 7-Pack” pass to all Roaring Fork Valley teachers and school workers and select frontline workers at area hospitals and grocery stores.
The Valley 7-Pack is among a pair of new seasonal ski pass offerings for the 2020-21 ski season. $399 – only for Roaring Fork Valley residents = lift access for 7 days on Aspen, Buttermilk, Highlands, or Snowmass with holiday blackouts and discounted options for additional days.
A second new offering, the Valley Weekday Pass (also for Roaring Fork Valley residents only) gives passholders a full season of access to the four mountains on Monday through Friday, with holiday blackouts. $899 for Chamber members. $999 non-Chamber through Nov. 13.
“Our passes and pricing this season are designed to spread people out and enable capacity controls should the pandemic require them. The product selection will allow our guests to choose the product that works best for them, and to contribute to keeping the season going through April,” says Mike Kaplan, president, and CEO, Aspen Skiing Company.

COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS
New safety measures will be instituted across every aspect of the business, including new technology that will allow for contactless commerce and pick-up of season passes. Operating procedures will include distancing protocols, face-coverings, limits in buildings and all recommended health and safety measures from County and State agencies. In addition, redesigned operating procedures will be introduced in ski school, lift lines, on-mountain dining, and in rental and retail stores. New technology will allow for “digital distancing” with many of the processes that formerly took place in person.
“The health and safety of our community, employees, and guests is our ultimate goal, and everyone should understand that we each play a part in this season’s success,” says Kaplan. “We learned a great deal through our summer operations and we have been applying that to our plan for winter.”
Businesses located and operating in the Roaring Fork Valley and that are members of the Chamber of Commerce in the community in which the business is operating are eligible to purchase Chamber Pass vouchers for their qualifying employees and employees’ spouses. A new electronic process will be used for Chamber pass purchases.
2019-20 PASSHOLDER CREDIT DETAILS
In recognition of the abbreviated 2019-20 season, Aspen Snowmass issued all 2019-20 passholders credit to apply towards 2020-2021 purchases. Credits are valid on all Aspen Snowmass pass, lift ticket, activity, rental, and lesson purchases through April 30, 2021. Credits for Chamber passes were issued to the business that purchased the pass, not the individual passholder.
Aspen Snowmass intends to start the season without requiring reservations on any Aspen Snowmass products.
Reservations may become required based on prevailing state and local Covid-19 metrics as determined by the appropriate health and government agencies. Should these metrics show an increased rate of community spread that initiates additional restrictions and regulations, Aspen Skiing Company may implement a reservations system across all products. If this happens, the company cannot guarantee that every passholder will be able to obtain a reservation on the days they want. The system can flex based on changing metrics.
If operations are shut down due to Covid-19 for 10 or more days of the season, Aspen Snowmass will issue refunds, prorated for each day of full shut down for all passes except the Valley 7-Pack and Classic Pass. Refunds will not be issued in the event we implement a reservation system regardless of whether you are able to obtain a reservation for your desired days. All pass products are 100% refundable through November 20, 2020. Unused day tickets are fully refundable.
Valley Weekday and Valley 7-Pack blackout dates are December 26, 2020 – January 2, 2021, and February 13 – 14, 2021. Discounted extension days may be purchased during these periods.
