Vail Resorts' Epic Pass offers skiing, snowboarding in three states, three countries
The most flexible, attractive season pass in the worldwide snow sports industry – The Epic Pass – is back for the 2013-2014 winter season and this year skiers and riders have access to 18 iconic mountains in three countries.
The Epic Pass features unlimited, unrestricted skiing and riding at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin and Eldora in Colorado; Canyons in Park City, Utah; Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in 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 from the U.S. to Europe with five free days at the renowned mountain resorts of Verbier, Switzerland and five free days at Arlberg, Austria.
Vail Resorts is offering the industry’s best-selling season pass at $689 for adults and $359 for children (ages 5-12), but these prices are only guaranteed through Sept. 2, 2013.
“The Epic Pass is more attractive than ever, not just because of the access it provides to 18 mountains in three countries, but also because of the unprecedented on-mountain improvements of $130-140 million across our resorts for the upcoming season – especially right here in Colorado,” said Kirsten Lynch, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts.
“Not since the opening of Blue Sky Basin at Vail have we seen such a significant terrain expansion at a Colorado ski resort as with the addition of Peak 6 at Breckenridge. We’re also adding a new high-speed six-person lift in Mid-Vail to get guests into the Back Bowls faster and opening a new on-mountain restaurant at the base of Beaver Creek’s famed Birds of Prey race course. And then there’s the fourth generation of EpicMix – Epic Academy – which offers a unique way to earn and share you accomplishments in our world-class ski and ride schools.”
