Adaptive Passes are season-long passes that offer access to our resorts at a discounted rate for Pass Holders with permanent disabilities. Vail Resorts qualifies a permanent disability as a permanent physical, mental, or sensory impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, or working.
All Adaptive Pass Holders can purchase one Guide/Companion lift ticket per day for a reduced price at all Vail Resorts owned and operated resorts. This ticket can be purchased the day-of at the ticket window. The Guide/Companion must be assisting the Adaptive Pass Holder at all times on the mountain.
Note, a discounted Guide/Companion lift ticket might not be available Partner resorts and we encourage you to check directly with the Partner resort prior to your planned arrival to confirm access and benefits.
