Season Pass FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Are Season Passes refundable or transferable?
No. Season Passes are non-refundable and non-transferable. Allowing another person to use your pass is cause for immediate revocation.
How do I pick up my Season Pass?
If you are a returning Season Pass Holder you just pay and go! No need to stop by the office unless you would prefer a new photo. Your 2014-2015 Pass is all you will need. Passes are renewable if you purchase the same pass type. The exception is the Midweek Plus passes since that pass is no longer available.

For your convenience, Dual Mountain and Bear Mountain Only Passes may be picked up during the summer at Snow Summit. Season Pass Office hours during the summer are based upon Sky Chair operations. Please call: 909-866-5766.

During the winter season, Dual Mountain season pass holders may pick up passes and have photos taken in the Season Pass Office at Snow Summit. Bear Mountain Only season pass holders may pick up passes and have photos taken at the Season Pass counter located downstairs in the Ticket Sales building at Bear Mountain. Winter office hours are daily when in full operation.
What if I cannot pick up my Season Pass before the winter season?
You can come to the Snow Summit or Bear Mountain Season Pass Office on your first visit of the winter season.
Are there ways to buy passes other than online?
