This is a list of questions that our guests ask us frequently in regards to the 2020-21 ski season, given the restraints placed because of the ongoing pandemic.
Tickets & Passes
Is there a reservation system?
Individual day lift tickets are available for sale in advance. Your lift ticket for a specific day will act as a reservation. Many days we have been sold out this season, so please plan ahead. You will receive an email confirmation from your online purchase. Present that at either the ticket booth on the locker lodge deck, or at the outdoor ticket booth located in the parking lot.
Will there a reservation system next season?
What is the best way to guarantee I can ski/ride on a certain day?
Help! I didn't get a reservation for my chosen day. Can I still ski/ride?
Can I buy lift tickets in person at the mountain?
How can I see if lift tickets are available for a certain date?
I have a voucher/punch card issued for the 2019-2020 ski season. Can I use it this year?
- Costco 3-visit punch cards
- Yellow lift ticket vouchers
All vouchers still require reservations. Please visit our cloud store and select the day you wish to visit. There will be an option for a no-cost reservation. When you arrive at Mt. Ashland, please present the voucher at a ticket window along with proof of your reservation (the easiest way to do so is by pulling up our confirmation email on your mobile phone).
How can I pick up my season pass?
Are things in the parking lot different than in years past?
We ask guests to limit groups in any particular area to no more than ten people. We will be requiring face coverings at all of the places where people gather, including on or around the ski lifts, so please don’t forget to bring it with you when you leave the parking lot.
Many people have asked us about bringing campers and setting up tents. We ask that you consider all of our guest’s needs and not take up any more space than you need to park your vehicle, and get ready for your day. On several days a season we exceed our capacity in the lot and have to turn guests away. Without our usual tight spacing of one door apart, we fear that we will have to turn even more people around than usual. Even on less crowded days we could see more people forced to the back parking lot which is not an ideal situation.
Behaviors in the lot are overseen by the US Forest Service Law Enforcement Officers and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, so please consider your activities in the lot carefully and check with the US Forest service should you have any questions about what is allowed. Overnight camping is not allowed in the parking lot, and a sno-park permit is required.
Can I have a fire in the parking lot?
Can I buy a Sno-Park permit at the mountain?

At the Ski Area
What kinds of face coverings are required?
- Surgical masks,
- Double-layered cloth masks,
- Double-layered balaclavas, and
- N-95 masks without vents.
The following are considered unacceptable face coverings at Mt. Ashland. If you are at Mt. Ashland wearing one of these, we will issue one surgical mask to you and ask that you come better-prepared in the future if you only have:
- A bandana,
- a clear face shield,
- a neoprene face mask with nose and mouth holes,
- an N-95 (or any other mask) with vents which allow unfiltered air to escape,
- any loose-fitting mask.
What are the ski season opening and closing dates?
Is the ski lodge open?
What are the food and beverage options this year?
People often ask about food trucks. This seems like a sensible solution to feed people outdoors. Unfortunately, offering a consistent source of warm food and beverages from a small truck would only be able to serve a small portion of guests on a busy day. And many days it would be too cold and/or windy in our parking lot to operate. In addition, most food trucks, while perfectly functional in an urban environment, are not built to travel up 4,000 feet on the ski area access road and operate in our alpine environment in winter.
