If your pass has not been used, you will receive a credit for the full amount of your 23/24 Season Pass. The percentage credited will be based off the Season Pass price only and does not include the price of Pass Protection, Shipping or Media fees. 

Note: The Season Pass must have fewer than ten uses in the 2023/2024 Winter Season(s) to be eligible for a credit.
