If you visit Jackson Holes Season Pass page this is the massage that awaits you, “Season Passes are currently off sale. We intend to resume selling public pass products on October 5, noting that 7- and 10-day pass products will no longer be offered.”
Jackson Holes announcement is similar to Sugar Bowl’s announcement earlier this week. Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the resort announced new COVID-19 protocols including limiting capacity at the mountain by capping the number of tickets that can be purchased daily, sanitization of Aerial Tram cabins and the Bridger and Sweetwater Gondola cars multiple times daily, placing thermal imaging cameras “in certain areas” to detect fevers among skiers, and limiting capacity on the tram.
“Our priority is to create an environment that protects the health and safety of our guests and employees with the baseline requirements to wear face coverings and maintain physical distancing. We are adopting the best practices and direction from the National Ski Areas Association, the CDC, Wyoming Department of Health, Teton County Health Department and St. John’s Health.”
If you have already purchased a season pass, you will not be required to make a reservation:
“Anyone who has already purchased any Season Pass from JHMR will have full mountain access without limitations this winter per the terms under which their pass was purchased.”
The date to cancel a Season Pass for a full refund for any reason is extended to Monday, November 16, 2020. An administrative fee of $45 will be deducted from the refund total.
Time will tell if more resorts follow suit and discontinue season pass sales in the face COVID-19 concerns. Here’s a quick video from Jackson Hole reassuring skiers and snowboarders about the upcoming season:
