Whistler Blackcomb is another resort offering discounts due to the pandemic. Their pass holders will receive a credit between 20 and 80 per cent, depending on how many days the pass was used.

Kicking Horse Resort said they will release details on next year’s pass later this spring. Another resort, Big White said they will release details on their early bird season pass by June 1.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort closed March 16, which was 34 days early.

Due to the premature closure, the company said they have experienced a significant loss in revenue and hundreds of seasonal workers were laid off early.

The resort is hoping to open this summer in some form. Whether they will open their pipe mountain coaster or mountain biking trails is currently unknown and will depend on guidelines from the province and Interior Health.

The early bird price for the 2020/21 adult ski pass is $1,029 until Sept. 30.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort also offers an interest free payment plan option until June 15, which allows customers to pay for the pass over a 10-month period.
