Winter Assurance

 We understand there is a great deal of uncertainty right now, and many of you have concerns about what this winter might look like and whether you'll be able to spend at much time outdoors enjoying the mountains as you'd like. We're expecting a long ski season ahead, but to provide peace of mind and a greater level of confidence to passholders we're offing a set of benefits and protections through Winter Assurance on all season passes.

Winter Assurance ensures the value of a full winter season for all of our 2020/21 season passholders. We've made a commitment to being open for at least 150 days of skiing and riding this winter. If for any reason we don't hit 150, passholders will receive a credit towards the purchase of a 2021/22 season pass. In addition, all passholders had the option to roll over the value of any unused 2020/21 season pass to 2021/22 for any reason by January 15, 2021. Winter Assurance is included with every season pass at Sunday River.

* If you elected to roll over your pass, we have your request and you will be notified by email when your rollover is processed. Please allow up to four weeks for processing to be complete. 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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 January 15, 2021 for any reason.

  • The WWA provides a credit toward the purchase of any 2021/22 New England Pass, Maine 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 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, Maine 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.

  • 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.
