Next season’s Epic Pass now on sale
BROOMFIELD — The Epic Pass is on sale now with unlimited access to 11 U.S. resorts offering more than 32,000 acres of terrain for the 2015-16 winter ski season.
Priced at $769 for adults and $399 for children, the Epic Pass allows skiers and snowboarders access to resorts including Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Park City all season long. With Park City merging with Canyons Resort during the summer and becoming the largest U.S ski resort, plus the benefit of $85 million in resort improvements for guests last season, $492 million since 2010 and more improvements to come during the summer, the Epic Pass offers lots of skiing and snowboarding under one pass.
Skiers and snowboarders can choose to put $49 down by April 12 to lock in the lowest guaranteed pass price for next season, with the balance due in September. For guests planning on just one ski vacation, the Epic 4-Day offers four unrestricted days of skiing or snowboarding, valid all season long. At $389 for adults, the Epic 4-Day offers a 35 percent savings from the lift ticket window.
“The Epic Pass continues to offer the best deal in the ski industry with access to legendary resorts across the country and some of the best skiing and riding in the world,” said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts. “This is the best time to lock in the lowest price for yourself, friends and family, and experience the benefits of owning a season pass for next ski season.”
Starting March 10, guests can benefit from the Turn in Your Ticket program, which allows visitors to apply the cost of their day lift ticket towards the price of an Epic Pass for the 2015-16 ski season. Guests can bring their day ticket to a season pass office at any of the Vail Resorts-owned mountains and let the staff know they’d like to put the money towards a pass.
