From December 9th, Killington, VT introduced a ‘Cancel for Karma’ policy, asking guests who could not make their reservation cancel at least 90-minutes before the resort opens or face not being able to make future bookings.
Other resorts soon followed suit, with Snowbird, UT, Copper, and Eldora in Colorado, and Mt. Bachelor, OR also warning of a similar fate. All resorts are owned by Powdr.
A tiered penalty system is in place. A first-time no-show will receive a warning email, second-time will lose their next parking reservation, and third-time and beyond will lose all remaining reservations currently booked.
The resorts implemented parking reservations as a way to control crowds as a result of covid-19.
