Aspen Skiing Co. has confirmed that skiers and riders will not be required to make reservations to ski over Christmas and New Years.
Check out the full statement below:
“With the holidays approaching and current expected business levels, we will not be implementing a reservations system over the holiday period. Passholders can access the mountains as their pass allows and pre-purchased lift tickets allow access for the days purchased. Ikon Passholders must continue to make reservations to ski at the four mountains of Aspen Snowmass through ikonpass.com ahead of time. We will monitor lift ticket inventory and may sell out on certain days. If we are shut down, if you do not get on the mountain, or if you cancel your trip for any reason, your completely unused lift tickets will be refunded back to your original form of payment. + Learn More”
This is great news for anybody planning on visiting Aspen in the coming weeks, but Aspen Skiing Co. isn’t ruling out that a reservation system could be implemented in the future.
Jeff Hanle, Aspen Skiing Co.’s VP of Communications told The Aspen Times that a reservation system could be utilized if demand requires.
I’m glad that skiers and riders can avoid the headaches of a reservation system at Aspen, at least for the holidays. I can’t imagine getting there and not being able to ski because the reservation system was booked.
Thankfully, it doesn’t appear that’s in jeopardy of happening at any of Aspen’s four resorts this holiday season.
