Mt. Bachelor launches pass sale; still hoping for May reopening

Mt. Bachelor has kicked off its season pass sale for next year while it holds out hope for one final run of spring skiing this year.

New next season: the possibility of a full refund.

“If you buy a pass and for any reason prior to November 20th you want to get a refund, we’ll issue you a full refund for your pass,” said John McLeod, the General Manager for Mt. Bachelor.

McCleod explained the refund offer on next year’s passes is for any reason at the purchaser’s discretion. It is not tied to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ski area announced late last month it had suspended operations indefinitely. In early April it announced it would give vouchers to current season passholders to make up for the days lost due to the COVID crisis.

The vouchers will be given based on what pass was purchased for the winter 2019-20 season.

Adult season passes are $959 – which is the same preseason sale price as last year. Midweek passes are $689.

As part of Mt. Bachelor’s passholder promise, pass prices are frozen at last season’s prices. However, the age limit for a young adult pass will be 22 years-old.  It had been 25 years-old.

Alpine Season Pass purchasers will receive $150 vouchers for an adult pass, $85 for an adaptive pass, $75 for a young adult pass, $50 for a teen pass, $40 for a youth pass, $100 for a senior pass, $75 for ages 75 and over, $100 for an industry pass and $75 for an elite racer pass, according to the Mt. Bachelor website.

Those who purchased a midweek season pass will receive $100 for an adult pass and $80 for a senior pass.

Twelve-day passholders who purchased pass refund protection will receive various voucher amounts based on what pass was purchased and the number of days already used. Twelve-day passholders who did not purchase pass refund protection receive a $100 voucher.

Four-day passholders will receive various voucher amounts based on when the pass was purchased and the number of days used. Exact voucher amounts for 12-day and four-day passholders are available at the Mt. Bachelor website

Mount Bachelor has also joined the Ikon Pass.  The popular multi-resort ski pass allows users to ski at various ski resorts on a single season pass.  However, days at each resort may be limited.

Downhill bike park passes are also on sale with full-season adult passes going for $189.

The current pricing runs through July 15th.
