We’ve all be waiting and Fernie Alpine Resort has finally announced their Early Bird Season Pass program, along with a discount and several policy improvements. This is from the FAR website:

“Due to the sudden conclusion of the 2019.20 Winter Season, renewing passholders from the 2019.20 Winter Season will be eligible for a 15% discount on their 2020.21 Early Bird Season Pass Purchase. Personalized emails will be sent to all renewing passholders with instruction on how to access their discount in the upcoming weeks.

2020.21 Winter Season passes will be available for sale shortly, check back regularly for updates on Specialty Passes, Member Benefits, FAQs and Add-ons!”

The program deadline has also been extended to a later date, the Early Bird Season Pass program Sale ends September 12, 2020.

We definitely missed an amazing spring, the spring season offered perhaps the best snow of the decade, however I feel gratitude for FAR’s prudent closing. Ski resort travel has been linked to substantial Coronavirus and Fernie avoided an outbreak. So I do appreciate FAR making thoughtful decisions then and now, thank you for the discount–it is appreciated.

Refund Option: We will continue to offer the same refund option as in previous years. However, we will now be offering:

No Questions Asked Refunds: New, for the upcoming season we will be implementing a “no questions asked” refund policy. All unused** season passes will be eligible for a refund, no questions asked (subject to 9% processing fee if refund option not added at time of pass purchase).

Installment Plans: This year we will be reducing the installment plan fee from $15/payment to a one time $20 fee. We will be offering two installment plans including a special plan for families that spreads payments over 5 payment periods. The installment plans will be available for online purchase later this summer.

80+ Pass is now the 75+ Pass

Fernie Alpine Resort NEW 75+ Pass: $59

RCR Rockies Pass NEW 75+ Pass: $99 (Includes Fernie Alpine Resort, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Kimberley Alpine Resort and Nakiska Ski Area)

**Family passes will be considered used once one member on the pass has used the pass. After usage the regular refund policy will apply.
