Additional Notes

Complaint: I put a deposit of $450 down for the purchase of two season passes in October, 2014. The next steps per their website was to print the application, fill it out, sign it, and bring it with us, in order to have the passes issued. We never ended up going up to the mountain to get the passes, due to health reasons among various other things. I emailed them on 03/15 to explain my situation and request a refund of the deposit or even a rollover to next year. I got no response. I emailed them again on 03/18. I finally got a response on 03/20 stating that they were unable to refund my money or offer a rollover, as per their policy. I replied and told them that I didn't understand, because I had not signed and returned the application and release forms. These forms do clearly state that no refunds or exchanges can be made, but they require a signature, and you have to bring them with you to get your pass issued. I never gave them any of their required signed paperwork, so the passes were never issued. I never visited Timberline. I never utilized their services. I got a second response from someone else on 03/23 stating exactly what the previous person employee had said, that passes were non refundable, per their policy and application/liability waiver. I never signed this application/waiver, therefore I should not be held to their policy on this. How can I be held accountable for a policy, when I haven't accepted/signed the form yet? The gentleman said I accepted it when I purchased it online, then why would I be required to print something, sign it, and bring it with me to have my pass issued?

Desired Settlement: I love Timberline, and I would like to go back. However, I really think this situation requires either a refund, or some kind of account credit to use at a later time. I should not be held accountable for something that I have not yet signed/accepted. If purchasing something online accepts their policies, then why would you I be required to print paperwork, sign it, and bring it with me to get my pass issued? Does not make sense. Please fix this situation. Please.
