This has become a hot topic here in Jackson Hole this summer. In all the years past, the ski resort has allowed winter season passholders to use the lifts for free in the summer. That changed this year.
For summer 2016, that privilege has been adjusted. Winter passholders can still ride the tram for free this summer during the "shoulder" seasons but now have to pay to ride the tram, the gondola, or the Teewinot (bike park) chair during the prime 10 weeks of the summer.
There are summer "season passes" that can be purchased at a discount and it's also complicated by various deals, but the bottom line is that winter passholders can no longer just walk onto the tram or gondola and ride for free by showing their pass. The new policy has caused a fair bit of blowback here and quite a few people are not real happy.
I'm just wondering how summer lift access for winter passholders is handled at other resorts?
Thanks for any replies.
