“Our goal has always been to provide quality products and services at a value even when the weather doesn’t cooperate or a pandemic hits. I look forward to next winter and the world hopefully getting back to normal.” –Whitefish Mountain Resort CEO Dan Graves
Whitefish Mountain Resort issued a press release Wednesday announcing the price of a season pass for the upcoming 2020/2021 winter season will be unchanged from last season. The Flathead Beacon reports the Montana resort closed mid-March 2020, three weeks earlier than planned, after COVID-19 began spreading across the country. According to CEO Dan Graves, the early closure cost the resort upwards of $1 million:
“We recognize our guests were also impacted significantly, which is why we wanted to keep rates where they were and stress our payment plans.”
The 2020/2021 adult pre-season pass is $675; senior (ages 65 to 69) and college student passes are $575; teen passes are $370; and junior passes are $195. Children 6 and under will still be able to ski for free. Prices will increase after Sept. 30. The adult pass increases to $1,000 on Oct. 1 and $1,300 after Nov. 15. Conditions permitting, the ski area is scheduled to open Dec. 10 through April 11, 2021.
