“Think of how often we all see people being skied off the mountain in a stretcher. Instead of being stuck with those medical bills, they are covered. Telluride is the first to say ‘We need to add more value to our lift tickets and passes outside of just getting to ski.’ We think more resorts are going to want to give that value back to their customers.”– Spot CEO Matt Randall
Most mountains offer season ticket insurance to refund the purchase at this point in case of injury or emergency, but it’s rare to see mountains to protect skiers and riders from medical emergencies. With this partnership, Spot and Telluride may be leading the way towards a newly added perk to the evolving world of season passes.
