"We are excited to announce a renewed partnership between Vail Resorts and Les 3 Vallées, France, as well as Verbier, Switzerland, providing ongoing access to truly legendary and world-class resorts in Europe. Epic Pass holders that have taken advantage of these partnerships have been nothing short of blown away by the experience that these resorts provide and we couldn’t be more pleased to be able to extend the opportunity for more of our most loyal skiers and riders to ski the world", said Kirsten Lynch, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts. "Each and every year, we look to further increase the already incredible value of the Epic Pass, and the 2014-2015 season will be no exception, with continued access to the best of Europe, in addition to five free days in Niseko, Japan".
"We are very happy to continue our partnership with Vail Resorts. Les 3 Vallées is the largest ski area in the world and the premier destination in ski terrain choice, service and gastronomy in Europe", said Vincent Lalanne-Clouté, director of Les 3 Vallées. "It’s no mistake that we are aligned with the preeminent mountain resorts in the world. We look forward to once again having Epic Pass holders experience the special place that is Les 3 Vallées, during the 2014-2015 season".
Les 3 Vallées and Verbier are typically open from early December through April, while Nisekois typically open from November through May. Les 3 Vallées is home to the legendary mountain resorts of Courchevel, La Tania, Méribel, Brides-les-Bains, Les Menuires, Saint Martin de Belleville, Val Thorens and Orelle, France.
The five free consecutive days of skiing and riding at Les 3 Vallées, Verbier and Niseko will be reciprocated for the mountains’ respective season pass holders, allowing more international guests to experience Vail Resorts’ world-class mountain resorts.
