DO I NEED TO REDEEM MY SUPER PASS FOR A LIFT TICKET EACH DAY?

At Brighton Resort and Solitude Mountain Resort your Super Pass must be activated daily at the ticket window. At Snowbird and Alta the Super Pass grants you direct-to-lift access, so skip the resort's lift ticket window and head straight to the gates, where your Super Pass will be scanned.

CAN I RECEIVE A REFUND ON MY SUPER PASS IF I AM UNABLE TO USE IT?

Visit Salt Lake understands how seriously travel plans have been impacted by the COVID-19 virus and has revised the cancelation and refund policy to keep health and safety of all skiers and riders number one priority.

Refunds will be issued for the following instances:

  • State-mandated mandatory travel ban from the guest’s home state or region.
  • Both Big and Little Cottonwood Canyon were closed for a full ski day during the dates the Salt Lake Ski Super Pass was active.
  • Visit Salt Lake will not guarantee refunds based on injury or sickness but will review customer refund requests on a case-by-case situation when presented with documentation from a medical authority. It is at Visit Salt Lake’s sole discretion as to whether a refund is issued.

*Super Passes purchased or gifted through campaigns, hotels, and third party vendors are non-refundable.

DO I NEED TO MAKE DAY-SPECIFIC RESERVATIONS TO SKI OR SNOWBOARD AT THE RESORTS WITH MY SUPER PASS?

No, your Super Pass does not require reservations for skiing or snowboarding at the four participating resorts. Reservations may still be required for other variables such as ski school, rentals, transportation/parking. Please review each resort’s policies prior to visiting.

ARE THERE REALLY NO BLACKOUTS?

The Super Pass has no black outs dates just that you use all your days within a 14-day window that starts on the first day of skiing. 


DO I HAVE TO SKI/BOARD ON CONSECUTIVE DAYS WITH MY MULTI-DAY SUPER PASS?

No. You can schedule your ski days however you like within a 14-day window. Your pass is activated the first day you use it (Day 1), and it expires at the end of Day 14. Sprinkle your down-days throughout your vacation, or string them together and spend some quality time in the city.

CAN YOU ADD AN EXTRA DAY TO MY PASS?

No, passes cannot be modified after purchase. 
 

ARE THERE ANY DATES WHEN THE SUPER PASS IS NOT VALID?

No. Your Super Pass is valid any day during the current ski season, including weekends and holidays.


CAN I USE MY SUPER PASS AT MORE THAN ONE RESORT PER DAY?

You can use the Super Pass at Brighton Resort and Solitude Mountain Resor on the same day, but otherwise, you're limited to one resort per day. However, you can access both Alta and Snowbird in a single day by upgrading your Super Pass to the Alta/Snowbird ticket. To do this, just take your Super Pass to the ticket window at either Alta or Snowbird, pay an extra *$50 for an adult ticket or *$43 for a junior upgrade, and you're upgraded for that day. Pretty sweet.

CAN I PICK THE RESORTS AT WHICH TO USE MY SUPER PASS? DO I HAVE TO SKI/RIDE AT ALL FOUR?

You get to choose at which resort to redeem your pass for the day. If you have a 4-day Super Pass, you can spend all 4 days at one resort or visit a different resort each day (although Alta is skiers-only; sorry, boarders). 

CAN MORE THAN ONE PERSON USE THE SAME SUPER PASS?

No. Each person must have their own Super Pass.

IS THERE A SUPER PASS FOR CHILDREN UNDER 7 YEARS OF AGE?

No. Since the resorts' kids' ticket policies vary based on age and rate, we recommend purchasing your child's lift tickets at each individual resort. Our Junior Super Pass works for ages 7-12.
