2016-2017 SEASON PASS REFUND PROTECTION
Insure your investment with our Season Pass Refund Protection (SPRP) program.

SEASON PASS REFUND PROTECTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Season Pass Refund Protection Benefit
The maximum benefit amount of Season Pass Refund Protection shall not exceed the purchase amount of the pass (excluding the cost of Pass Refund Protection). Up to the maximum benefit amount per season pass will be paid if the pass holder is prevented from using the season pass for the remainder of the ski season due to the pass holder’s injury, sickness, pregnancy, military deployment or relocation. With respect to an injury, sickness or pregnancy of the pass holder, a physician must recommend in writing that due to the severity of the pass holder’s condition, it is medically necessary that the pass holder does not ski/ride for the remainder of the ski season for which the season pass was purchased. The pass holder must be under the direct care and attendance of a physician. The season pass holder must contact Crystal Mountain immediately after the accident or onset of sickness or pregnancy.
With respect to military deployment, the pass holder is called to active military service or military leave is revoked or reassigned while the pass holder’s coverage under Pass Protection is in force.
With respect to relocation, the relocation may be occasioned for any reason but must be 200 miles or more from Crystal Mountain, WA or permanent residence has changed more than 200 miles from your previous residence, as evidenced on MapQuest.com. The season pass must be surrendered to Crystal Mountain immediately after the relocation and the pass holder must provide proof of change of address (driver’s license, passport, voter registration, etc.).
Any qualifying cancellation benefit amount will be delivered by certified mail to the pass holder at the relocation address. The amount of the cancellation benefit will be equal to the pro-rated amount of the actual cost of the season pass paid.
