What does this mean?

The ASC Spring Pass Sale is for people who buy a traditional, full access regular season pass (i.e. full-price), not through a discounted pass program, such as the Chamber’s. That being said, the new refund policy tied to this sale does offer a way to hedge your bets on future pass products and pricing.

 

REQUIRED DISCLOSURE: This blog post includes known information, mixed with a historical understanding of ASC’s Chamber Pass Program. The Chamber is not responsible for any bad pass decision making; this is to help you make an educated guess. Ultimately, this is a financial and business decision you must make on your own. We do not have a crystal ball; we wish we did!

What to consider

If you are unsure if you will remain a Chamber member OR If you are unsure if you will meet ASC’s requirements for the Chamber Pass Program: You may want to consider purchasing the Premier Pass during the Spring Pass Sale.
 
REMINDER: Chamber membership does NOT guarantee the ability to participate in the Chamber Pass Program:
  • To purchase Chamber Passes a business must be located and operated in the Roaring Fork Valley and must be a current member of the Chamber of Commerce in the community in which the business is operating. The business needs to provide local mailing and physical addresses.
  • Only owners, managers, and employees living in the Roaring Fork Valley (as their primary residence) AND working a minimum of twenty (20) hours per week during the winter season are eligible for the discounted season pass. Non-working owners, friends, contract laborers and consultants are NOT eligible.
 
If you plan to remain a Chamber member AND meet ASC’s requirements for the program: It makes sense to wait until the discounted Chamber Pass Program season begins in August to purchase your season passes.
