Sun Valley Resort passes for the 2020-21 winter season will go on sale March 2, the resort said Thursday.

Passes with early pricing and enhanced benefits will be available through May 31. Those benefits include free spring skiing if the passes are paid in full: people who buy the Challenger Pass will be able to ski the remainder of the 2019-20 season for free, while Freedom Found Pass holders can ski for free after March 20. Those who buy the 15 Day Pass receive two days of free skiing this spring.

“We are thrilled to offer our 2020-21 Sun Valley season passes with enhanced benefits,” said Sun Valley Resort President and General Manager Tim Silva in a statement. “Also, we’re excited about next season with the addition of 380 acres of skiable terrain and a new high-speed quad chairlift to enhance the overall experience at the resort.”

The additional acres of skiable terrain are part of the Bald Mountain expansion, which also includes replacing the resort’s oldest chairlift—Cold Springs No. 4—and extending the Lower Broadway run.

Passes available on March 2 include the Challenger Pass—whose benefits include unlimited skiing on Bald and Dollar mountains with no blackout dates—for $1,799 ($1,099 for pass holders 29 or younger and $599 for children 12 or younger), the Freedom Found Pass—which offers unlimited skiing during the early and late seasons and 15 days of skiing during the regular season—for $1,219, the 15 Day Pass for $999, the Early/Late Pass for $399, the College Season Pass for $399 and the Sun and Snow Pass—which gives pass holders three days at Sun Valley Resort and three days at Snowbasin Resort in Utah—for $379 ($99 for children 12 or younger).

For the second year, Sun Valley will also participate in Vail Resorts’ Epic Pass, which serves more than 30 resorts around the country.
