Vail Resorts Announces Deadline to Purchase the Epic Pass


November 23, 2014 is the last chance for skiers and riders to purchase an Epic Pass, the world’s most flexible, popular season pass, for the 2014-15 ski and snowboard season. With Keystone Resort in Colorado already open, and recent snow storms combined with snowmaking systems in full operation across Vail Resorts’ iconic mountains in Colorado, Utah and Lake Tahoe, the clock is ticking down on the industry’s best-selling and most valuable season pass.
With the recent acquisition of Park City in Utah, Vail Resort’s Epic Pass now offers unprecedented access to 22 legendary mountain resorts and more than 32,000 acres of the best skiing and riding in the world. At just $769 for adults and $399 for children (ages 5-12), it also offers the industry’s best value, saving 30 percent versus buying lift tickets and paying for itself in just over six days.
"The recent snowfall at all our resorts and the opening of Keystone signal the official start of the ski and snowboard season", said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts, "but also the end of Epic Pass sales. With the Epic Pass, we continue to provide the greatest value and variety in skiing and riding but you have to buy it before the season gets into full swing".
The 2014-15 Epic Pass features unlimited, unrestricted skiing and riding at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado; Park City and Canyons in Utah; Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood at Lake Tahoe; Afton Alps in Minnesota and Mt. Brighton in Michigan. Furthermore, Epic Pass holders have the opportunity to extend their skiing and riding adventures globally with up to five consecutive free days each (when booking in-resort lodging) at the renowned mountain resorts of Les 3 Vallées, France (Courchevel, La Tania, Méribel, Brides-les-Bains, Les Menuires, Saint Martin de Belleville, Val Thorens and Orelle) and Verbier, Switzerland, and five consecutive free days at Niseko United, Japan.
In addition to adding Park City to the Epic Pass line-up, Vail Resorts has poured $85 million into elevating the guest experience for 2014-15, bringing its five-year resort investment total to $492 million.
