Season Pass FAQ


  • No, New England Passes are no longer available for this season. Following the spring sale on 2020/21 passes which ended June 15, our three resorts decided to offer different sets of products to allow each of us to best address the uncertainly and potential challenges of operating under COVID-19 this winter. We fully expect the New England Pass to be available again for winter 2021/22.

    If you purchased a New England Pass prior to June 15, you will have access to Sunday River, Sugarloaf, and Loon Mountain with the specific benefits for your pass

  • All passes will go off sale after October 12, at which point we will make decisions on potential additional sales and later deadlines. If you want to be assured of having a season pass this winter, we recommend you purchase by October 12.

  • You may change between passes by paying the difference between the pass you originally purchased and the pass you wish to change to, based on the availability of passes on sale at the time of the change.

Winter Assurance

  • Worry-Free Winter Assurance has two parts: 150-Day Commitment and  Rollover.  

    • 150-Day Commitment: We will ensure we provide the value of a full winter season for those who purchase a 2020/21 season pass. Our resorts are committed to offering 150 open days of skiing and riding (As an example, the period from November 15-April 15 is 150 days). If we offer fewer than 150 days for any reason, the pass holder will receive a credit toward a 2021/22 season pass based on the percentage of the season missed.
    • Rollover: Pass holders can also choose to rollover the value of their purchased 2020/21 season pass toward a single season pass available for the 2021/22 winter season through December 10, 2020 for any reason.

  • The WWA provides a credit toward the purchase of any 2021/22 New England Pass or resort-specific season pass. It will not provide refunds.

  • The value of the credit will be based on the percentage of the 2020/21 season our three combined resorts are not able to open for skiing, based on a 150-day season. For example, if our resorts are open for only 135 days, 10% of the value of your pass purchase would carry over as a credit toward the purchase of a 2021/22 pass. The credit will be calculated at the end of the winter season.  
    For resort-specific passes, the credit will be calculated based on the number of open days at the resort where the pass is valid, based on a 150-day season.  

  • The value of any credit issued for your 2020/21 pass can be applied to the purchase of any 2021/22 New England Pass or resort-specific season pass. You will be free to change the level of pass if desired. Credits will be non-transferable from the original 20/21 pass purchaser. 

  • You will receive a resort gift card with the remaining balance.

  • This program is included at no additional cost with season passes purchased by June 15, 2020, including passes purchased on our payment plans. This is not available on New England 5-Day products.

  • An open day is considered any day during which the resorts offer lift-accessed skiing and riding during scheduled operating hours for the day.

  • New England Pass and resort-specific season passes of all age categories are eligible. Season passes purchased (and not used) prior to December 10, 2020 are eligible. The New England 5-Day, resort ticket packs and frequency cards, promotional products, multi-day tickets, and employee passes are not eligible.

  • The pass holder will receive a credit for the amount paid for their 20/21 season pass. Actual age and/or pass categories for 21/22 passes will apply at the time of the 21/22 pass purchase based on resort policies.  The pass holder will be responsible for any cost increases if the pass holder is no longer eligible for a pass and/or a pass product is no longer offered.
