The 2023–24 Colorado Gems Teen Pass provides each passholder with a non-transferable, non-refundable pass that entitles the passholder to whom a Gems Teen Pass is issued to obtain lift tickets, subject to the terms and conditions set forth below, at participating Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) Gems member resorts during the 2023–24 season. All CSCUSA participating resorts reserve the right to withdraw from the program at any time and to restrict or prohibit lift tickets obtained using the Gems Teen Pass. The Gems Teen Pass cannot be used in conjunction with other resort offers and may be prohibited from being used by participants in special events, races, or competitions of any kind. The following CSCUSA Gems resorts are participating for the 2023–24 season:
The Gems Teen Pass is valid at participating CSCUSA member resorts during the 2023–24 ski season. The Gems Teen Pass may be used to obtain no more than two (2) days of tickets at each participating CSCUSA resort during the winter season. The Gems Teen Pass is not valid December 25, 2023–January 1, 2024; January 13, 2024–January 14, 2024; and February 17, 2024–February 18, 2024, and is subject to additional blackout dates, opening and closing dates, and operational limitations. Late season opening, mid-season, and/or early season closing do not warrant refunds or transfers.
It is a violation of Colorado law to resell lift tickets. CSCUSA will immediately revoke a Gems Teen Pass if the passholder transfers use of the Gems Teen Pass, or of any lift ticket obtained with the Gems Teen Pass, to another person for monetary consideration or otherwise.
If an applicant provides any false or inaccurate information in their application, a pass will not be activated. If a pass has already been activated, it will be revoked if it is determined that false or inaccurate information has been provided. All information provided in the application is subject to verification by CSCUSA. All information provided in the application becomes the property of CSCUSA.
Many CSCUSA member ski areas are now requiring or allowing advance online purchase of day lift tickets. Gems Teen Pass holders should check their Pass Portal for specific instructions about which Gems ski areas accept or require advance purchase of tickets using the Gems Teen Pass. At ski areas not accepting or requiring advance purchase of tickets using the Gems Teen Pass, the Gems Teen Pass holder must appear at the lift ticket window each time the Gems Teen Pass holder wishes to obtain a lift ticket. When appearing at the ticket window, the Gems Teen Pass holder must present a 2023–24 Gems Teen Pass validation email to the lift ticket office on the day of purchase. The lift ticket offices must be able to verify passholder identity and that resort visits are available on the holder’s Gems Teen Pass before issuing a lift ticket. One ticket may be obtained per day.
Gems Teen Pass holders are responsible for proper use of the pass at all times. CSCUSA will revoke and cancel a Gems Teen Pass without notice for any misuse. In the event of pass misuse and cancellation, CSCUSA may recover damages to CSCUSA and/or to participating CSCUSA member resorts arising from pass misuse, including reasonable attorney’s fees. CSCUSA reserves the right to modify or cancel the pass program at any time and to modify or cancel all Gems Teen Passes at any time with or without notice. CSCUSA is not responsible for expenses incurred or opportunities foregone by Gems Teen Pass holders if CSCUSA modifies or cancels the program. All Gems Teen Pass holders agree to comply with all rules of participating CSCUSA member resorts and with all applicable laws and regulations, including the Colorado Ski Safety Act. All information provided in the purchase becomes the property of CSCUSA and may be used by CSCUSA and its member resorts for verification, marketing, or research purposes.
