Refund Policy

We hope you have a fantastic season, but we know sometimes things just don’t go to plan. That’s why we offer a refund option for season passes – to safeguard your purchase. Please read these details carefully prior to pass purchase and contact us if you have any questions.

The cost of purchasing the refund option is $85 per individual pass and $139 per family pass for both the Big3 Pass and Rocky Mountain Passport. The cost of the refund option is non-refundable.

Refunds will only be considered due to medical conditions or transfer of employment – outside of Alberta within the same company.

Refunds will be calculated as follows:

  • • Refunds will be made on Purchase Price multiplied by the maximum percentage available on the date the claim is received (see grid below) less the Usage Value.
  • • Usage Value will be determined by the age-category, daily retail lift-ticket rate multiplied by the number of days skied, at each resort.
  • • Refunds relating to Family Passes will be calculated only on the injured party’s portion of the Family Pass.
