    To break your heart further there was 11" of fresh powder on the summits this morning.

    Win, my family always spends Easter at Sugarbush. A top 5 ski weekend every year. I can't imagine the conditions are like on upper mtn. We've had close to a month of non grooming, nobody skiing it with off and on snow filling in the nooks and crannies of the MTN. Now you tell us about 11 inches on upper Mtn. You are breaking my heart.

    You may be in the best position to relay the concerns of pretty much all passholders for next season.

    If Ikon does not extend their renewal discounts and does not form some sort of plan for next season we simply will not be skiing in 20/21 (I'll go to Hawaii instead, my kids will love it).

    Nothing is guaranteed but I simply will not flush $2,200 down the toilet. I have to assume pass sales are utterly abysmal and low preseason funding will seriously threaten the ability for many areas to open next season. Ikon's complete silence is not helping.

    If there is no ski season 20/21, I don't think you will be going to Hawaii.

    I do agree that it would be nice if Ikon did something to extend the renewal period. If they don't want to extend, then how about they lower the cost? Or - they could give some kind of guarantee that is the season is cut short B/C of Covid - they will do XYZ for the following season. If they did something, I would risk that there may be issues next year and buy anyway. Otherwise, I will just wait and buy my pass at a higher price.

    I have to believe that pass sales are way the heck off for next year.

    From Wins blog 4/8
    In the near future, we will be renewing our season pass campaign and providing you with more details next week.
    Sounds like theye are trying to figure out what to do. Hopefully some news this week.

    Not looking for a perfect plan or one ultimate solution....just some sort of update.

    Yes, Hawaii could become Florida could become a drive to Rhode Island could become just staying at home and watching more movies....

    From what I understand Alterra is in a battle with their insurance provider over this and the insurance provider is holding fast that they will not provide any protection if resorts are forced to close to due COVID. Further the "quarantine" part of the pass insurance offered apparently covers personal quarantine but doesn't do anything about stay-at-home orders. (Wouldn't be shocked if they stripped that part out for 2020-21 either.)

    There are a bunch of threads in the Ikon Pass Holders Facebook group with screenshots from conversations with Alterra Customer Service as well as with Red Sky Insurance who covers Ikon. Pretty informative if you want to check it out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ikonpassholders

    I would be surprised if Alterra doesn't issue a formal statement on this soon.

    I upgraded from my SB pass to full Ikon they day they went on sale. Wishing I had waited now...
