Summer more your thing?


Can I get a refund if my ski season does not go as planned?

A) The add-on Pass Refundable Option allows you to receive a pro-rated refund or deferral of your season pass for the following reasons:

1. Medical – An injury or illness which prevents the use of the pass for the duration of the season that is valid.  The refund is not applicable for an interim injury or illness.

2. Employment Transfer – A transfer by the pass holder’s current employer requiring a change of residence off Vancouver Island and surrounding islands. The refund is not applicable when voluntarily leaving the area for work or travel.
Any family member unable to ski the remainder of the season due to your injury, illness or move, will also receive a refund provided they have purchased the refundable option. Refunds are not available for reasons outside of the list above
