Vail Resorts to Offer Pass Insurance
Accidents, unemployment among the reasons for refunds

Let's say you bought a season pass, but you lost your job before the season even started. Are you screwed? Not if you opted for Vail Resorts' Pass Insurance program. For an extra $20 for adult, teen or senior passes (or $10 for children's passes), you'd be able to recover at least some, if not all, of your investment. Break a leg before the season even starts? Full refund. Get pregnant after opening day? Partial refund. Called up for duty two weeks after opening day? Partial refund. (We don't know about that last one -- we'd give active military all their money back and a big kiss on the cheek.) Whatever the obstacle, it has to be so great that it'll keep you from skiing all season.

Passes purchased for Vail, Beaver Creek, Heavenly, Keystone or Breckenridge -- or any combination of those resorts through one of Vail multi-resort passes like the Epic Pass -- are covered. The 2009–10 season will be the pilot year for the program, which may or may not expand into single- or multi-day tickets. Insurance isn't refundable or transferable, and is only available for purchase until November 15. Check with Vail Resorts for more details.
