Crested Butte Mountain Resort is now one of 64 mountain resorts in 11 states and provinces and eight countries that are at least partial participants in Vail Resorts' Epic Pass program.

BROOMFIELD — Vail Resorts announced on Wednesday, March 14, that Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado, Okemo Mountain Resort in Vermont and Mount Sunapee Resort in New Hampshire will join the Epic Pass in a long-term alliance beginning in the 2018-19 winter season. The news means 64 mountain resorts in 11 states and provinces and eight countries are at least partial participants in the pass program.

Epic, Epic Local and Epic Australia pass holders will receive seven days of skiing and snowboarding with no blackout dates at each of the three resorts for a total of 21 days. Epic 7-Day pass holders can use any or all seven of their total days, and Epic 4-Day pass holders can use any or all four of their total days of skiing and snowboarding with no blackout dates at the three resorts.

"Crested Butte is a perfect complement to the unique family of resorts offered on the 2018-19 Epic Pass with its legendary terrain and historic mountain town," said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts. "Okemo is known as a great family-friendly resort and together with neighboring Mount Sunapee and Stowe Mountain Resort, provides three great options for skiers and snowboarders in the Northeast."

After the seven days have been used at each resort, pass holders will receive 50 percent off lift tickets. Vail Resorts' 2018-19 season passes are on sale now for $49 down now and the rest due in the fall. For more information, go to http://www.epicpass.com.
