Whitefish Mountain Resort Announces Season Pass Prices

Whitefish Mountain Resort announced today that it will not increase season pass prices for 2020/2021 Winter Season. The lowest prices of the year for season passes, programs and teams will be available through September 30.

“As we roll out these season pass rates for the 2020-21 season, I am excited to report that we are still planning to proceed with the Hellroaring Lift and Trail project this summer even in light of the early closing of last winter,” said Dan Graves CEO for Whitefish Mountain Resort. “Our goal has always been to provide quality products and services at a value even when the weather doesn’t cooperate or a pandemic hits. I look forward to next winter and the world hopefully getting back to normal.”

New this season, in the spirit of giving back to the community, Whitefish Mountain Resort pledges that it will donate $25 to the North Valley Food Bank for the first 100 passes paid in full. For more information about the North Valley Food Bank go to northvalleyfoodbank.org.

In addition to not increasing prices, Whitefish Mountain Resort has added a new refund policy for 2020. Any passholder that purchases by September 30, 2020 and decides, for any reason to request a refund, Whitefish Mountain Resort will honor the request in full, no questions asked as long as the request is made prior to opening day. After the ski season begins, the standard refund policy goes into effect. Currently the ski area is scheduled to open December 10, 2020 through April 11, 2021 conditions permitting.

“Needless to say the 2019-20 season ended in a way that none of us want to experience again. It was a bummer for all of us who love to ski and ride. I know that I wasn’t ready to stop skiing in mid-March,” Graves continued. “It was also a bummer for the resort because it eliminated three weeks of revenue that is important to our cash flow. As one can imagine, we have a relatively brief period of time to earn enough to maintain our large infrastructure of buildings and equipment, and continue to invest in improvements for you to enjoy and for the resort to stay competitive in the marketplace.  So, closing the last three weeks of the season and taking a hit of over $1 million to the bottom line certainly impacted our planning for the year. That said we recognize our guests were also impacted significantly which is why we wanted to keep rates where they were and stress our payment plans”

Whitefish Mountain Resort offers “3 Ways to Pay” for season passes: pay in full, pay “Half now, Half Later” (with auto-payment on November 1), or the Installment plan. The Installment plan will take up to six equal payments beginning at time of purchase and subsequent auto-payments with the final payment on November 1. If a purchaser wishes to participate in the installment plan after July 1, payments equal to the number of payments missed up to that date will be taken on the day of the purchase. Enrollment is available online only. The Installment and Half Now, Half Later plans will be charged to the credit card used in the original purchase.
