BROOMFIELD, Colo. – Vail Resorts has just put the 2015-16 Epic Pass on sale, affording unlimited access to 11 U.S. resorts that collectively offer more than 32,000 acres of terrain. Until April 12, the Pass can be purchased for just $769 for adults and $399 for children, with $49 downpayment to lock in the rate. What is more, you can use lift ticket purchased after March 10 toward the purchase price.
The Epic Pass allows skiers and snowboarders to experience iconic resorts including Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Park City all season long. With Park City merging with Canyons Resort over 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 over the summer of 2015, the Epic Pass offers unrivaled services, skiing and snowboarding under one pass.
Skiers and snowboarders can put just $49 down by Sunday, April 12, to lock in the lowest guaranteed pass price for next season, with the balance due in September. The Epic Pass pays for itself in less than five days of skiing and offers a 35 percent savings compared to lift ticket purchases at the lift ticket window. 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 pays for itself in just over two days with 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. The prices will only go up, but we’ll continue to offer unparalleled guest offerings at all of our resorts.”
Starting March 10, guests can benefit from the Turn in Your Ticket program this spring, which allows skiers and snowboarders to apply the cost of their day lift ticket towards the price of an Epic season 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 any season pass product.
