Scenic Chairlift FAQ's

We know there’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now, so if your plans change, your activities ticket is refundable, except in certain circumstances. If you have not used your activities tickets, they are fully refundable until 24 hours prior to the ticket’s start time. Refund requests received within 24 hours prior to your ticket’s start time will be subject to a 50% Late Cancellation fee. Requests submitted after the start time of the session will not be honored.

To request a refund, you need to: 

  • Email with all of your order information.  The local sales team works through all of the requests; please allow a few days to process. Emailing is better than calling, as it marks the date and time of the request.
