No longer updated: 12:40PM PT, 3/27/2020: As of March 26, all ski areas in the U.S. and Canada are closed.

To our customers: Please note that we are experiencing a higher than usual volume of contacts, largely due to COVID-19. We are working closely with our ski resort partners to ensure we are aligned on refund, return, and exchange policies. Thank you for your patience.

Note: This post will be continually updated as we keep up with ski area closures. For more specific information on how COVID-19 is affecting the industry, check out our post, “How Coronavirus is Impacting the Ski Industry.”

On Friday, March 13, it was announced that ski season in Switzerland is over, as resorts have closed due to coronavirus. As spring in North America approaches, a handful of resorts have shuttered, due to a variety of reasons, such as regular closure, weather, or coronavirus.

On Saturday, March 14, Vail Resorts issued a press release stating that their 37 resorts will suspend operations March 15-22, with further guidance to follow. Later in the afternoon, Alterra Mountain Company also announced the suspension of operations at its 15 North American ski resorts. Aspen Skiing Co. followed suit and suspended operations at its four mountains.

On Tuesday, March 17, The Denver Post reported that Vail Resorts would be ending ski season at most of its resort; Breckenridge, Heavenly, and Whistler Blackcomb could reopen later in the season. Aspen Times reported that Aspen Snowmass said it will not reopen Buttermilk.

Below is a continually-updated list of known North America ski area closures for the 2019-2020 season. This list indicates the first date of closure, and indicates whether the resort has closed for the season or has suspended operations.

  5. Eddie Hughlander says:

    Come on people. Really? Let’s ask how much early are they closing from the original dates? How was weather or lack of weather involved in the decision?

  6. liftopia says:

    Thank you all for your additions/corrections. We have updated the post.

  7. liftopia says:

    To Eddie Hughlander: Thanks for your comment. Upon publication, we did say that the ski areas have closed due to a variety of reasons, but to your point, we made an edit to clarify further.

  8. Dagmar Ward says:

    Kitzbühel, Austria closed after 03-15

  14. sarena says:

    is the the date posted the last day the mountain is open or is it the first day it is closed?

  15. bend says:

    Mt. Bachelor is closed effective immediately through 22 March. There are still expected to be two months or so of season left after that.

  16. liftopia says:

    Hi Sarena – it’s a list of first day the ski areas are closed.

  17. Jewell says:

    I think the smaller list would be what ISNT closed.

    So far I know powder mountain is open, but only allowing the lodges to purchase beverages, pre packaged food, and restrooms. They are encouraging tailgating.

    Also Snowbasin still says they are open.

  18. Jewells says:

    Also Taos is closing 3/22 for the season

  19. Greek Peak (NY) has not closed. They were open on Fri, Sat and still today as well.

  20. Brenton says:

    Caberfae in Michigan closes Monday March 16.

  21. Mel D says:

    Silver Star BC closed March 15-22

  22. Voytek Paul says:

    Snowbird closedown

  23. Matthew says:

    Probably should be 2 lists or annotated to indicate window of “suspended operations”.

  24. Brian Litchfield says:

    Brighton and Snowbird – 3/15

  25. Gina Menasco says:

    Red river NM is closed

  26. Ivana says:

    Homewood CA is now closed

  27. Jules Older says:

    Mt. Bachelor will suspend all resort operations from March 15 – 22, 2020. This is an unusual and dynamic situation, and because we continue to believe outdoor mountain recreation provides a meaningful escape to nature, we will take this time to reassess our approach for the rest of the season.

  28. Steve Higgins says:

    All hills in the Province of Quebec are closed by order of the provincial Government.

  29. Michael says:

    Afton Alps, MN closed for season. Part of Vail Resorts.

  30. Steve says:

    Good to know… and your plan to process refunds, Liftopia? Every other company in the world has sent out their Covid19 contingencies, why not you?

  31. Josh McCann says:

    This is all great information, but so what? What is Liftopia doing for its customers during this time of crisis?

  32. liftopia says:

    Hi all – To those asking how Liftopia is helping our customers, thank you for your patience. We’re working closely with our ski resort partners to make sure we can make things right for everyone, and enabling customers to use their Liftopia credit in the future. We’re experiencing a higher volume of contacts than usual, so it may take us a bit longer than usual to respond to your inquiry. We’re sorry for the inconvenience during what is undoubtedly a stressful time for all.

    Be well,
    The Liftopia Team

  33. Michael Paterson says:

    2 days ago this updated included the language: “If your Liftopia order is impacted by any of these closures, rest assured that our Customer Support Team will be compensating you within 48 hours from notice of closure”. That language has disappeared now. Also, when we called 2 days ago about Tremblant closure due to Covid-19, we were told that customer service would be reaching out to us to process a refund. As of yet, we have heard nothing from Liftopia. Tremblant has already refunded us directly for the ski school booking we had for this week. Why is Liftopia not responding to do what’s right in a timely fashion and provide people with refunds for lift tickets they can’t use due to the circumstances around Covid-19?

    • liftopia says:

      Hi Michael – Thank you for your comment. We are looking into each customer inquiry on a case-by-case basis and working to make things right for our customers, while working closely with our ski resort partners to ensure we’re aligning with their return policies. This does include refunds, but it also includes credits for future use, or converting into anytime lift tickets.

  34. Mike Paterson says:

    Tremblant is offering refunds, which we confirmed when they refunded our ski school lessons, as well as providing refunds for lift tickets. Can I please have someone contact me directly from Liftopia and my provided email address?

    • liftopia says:

      Hi Michael – I sent your contact info to our Customer Support team so they can get to your inquiry as soon as possible. We’re experiencing a higher than usual volume of contacts, but rest assured we will get back to you and make things right.

      Thank you for your patience.

  35. Charles Kotuby says:

    When can we expect decisions from Liftopia on refunds/credits for tickets that were purchased and unable to be used? I have contacted our planned destination (Winter Park) and they disclaimed any input into the Liftopia refund/exchange decisions.

    • liftopia says:

      Hi Charles – Thank you so much for your patience. Our Customer Support team is working closely with our ski area partners to ensure we’re aligned on our refund/credit policies. I checked in with the team on your request, and we expect to have a resolution in a few business days.

      We’re experiencing a higher-than-average volume of Customer Support inquiries, and we’re sorry for the delay. In the meantime, we hope you’re staying safe and that you have a good week.

      Be well,
      Amanda, Marketing @ Liftopia

  36. Michael Paterson says:

    Well, Liftopia did end up telling me I could not get a refund. Instead we were provided a credit for our lift tickets in Tremblant that were impacted by Covid-19. Our friends who booked directly with Tremblant were offered 100% refund from the resort. We were also able to get 100% refund for the ski school booking we made directly with Tremblant. The only organization that would not refund, and provided credits only was Liftopia. Who knows if/when we’ll ever be able to use those credits, and if/when the ski resorts will open again. Certainly not until next season at the earlier. While the customer support representative was considerate and professional, this was our first time using Liftopia. it was not a pleasant experience. We will try to use our credits sometime in the future, but I will never be using Liftopia again, and will be discouraging all friends and family from using Liftopia in the future.
