Vail Resorts Announces The Return of The Epic Pass For The 2016-2017 Season


Skiers and snowboarders who are already dreaming of the 2016-2017 season can now rejoice. The Epic Pass returns for the 2016-2017 season, again providing the greatest value in skiing and snowboarding for those who want unlimited, unrestricted skiing access and the versatility to sample 13 world-class resorts in the U.S. and Australia. Available for just $809 for adults, purchasing now locks in savings of up to 35 percent versus individual lift tickets. Plus, purchasing in the spring unlocks Buddy Tickets – providing six friends or family members with discounted single day lift tickets. With just one pass, guests are geared up for endless experiences in the mountains – whether that means visiting a tried-and-true favorite, or first-time exploration of a new destination. Guests can purchase season passes and start planning winter vacations at EpicPass.com. 
The 2016-2017 Epic Pass offers unlimited access to 13 world-class resorts in the U.S. and abroad – including Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado; Park City in Utah; Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood at Lake Tahoe; Perisher in Australia; Afton Alps in Minnesota, Mt. Brighton in Michigan and Wilmot Mountain in Wisconsin.

"The Epic Pass continues to set the bar in terms of pass value. From unrestricted access to iconic resorts across more than 32,000 acres of skiable terrain, to year-round access to the mountains, our mission is clear – providing an accessible, world-class experience for our guests. The Epic Pass provides our guests with ultimate ease and flexibility to revisit their favorite resorts, plus an opportunity to sample new destinations every year", said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts. 
For guests who are willing to plan around a few restrictions, the Epic Local Pass provides an even greater value. For $609, skiers and snowboarders get unlimited and unrestricted skiing or riding at Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin with limited restrictions at Park City, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood, plus a total of 10 days at Vail and Beaver Creek with holiday restrictions. "The Epic Local Pass is an incredible value, paying for itself after just four days of skiing or snowboarding", said Lynch. "Whether you ski five days or 50, you won’t find a better way to conveniently access some of the world’s most iconic winter destinations".
