Vail Resorts will be limiting lift ticket sales during three popular holiday periods to ensure the best possible guest experience this season. But Epic Pass holders will have access and passes are still on sale (pass prices increase Nov. 21).

Lift ticket availability will be limited on:

  • Christmas & New Year’s (Dec. 25-Jan. 2)
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 14-17)
  • President’s Day (Feb. 18-27)

If you are visiting during these dates, you are strongly encouraged to purchase your lift access in advance. Lift ticket availability is visible on resort websites.

Alternatively, passes are still on sale. The Epic Day Pass provides up to 65% off lift tickets prices. With an Epic Day Pass, you can purchase the number of days you want to visit, from 1-7 days, and decide later when and where to go – without concern of a day selling out. Epic Day Passes are non-refundable, except as provided in Epic Coverage. Pass prices increase Nov. 21.

With just a few shopping days to go until Christmas, there’s still time to give family and friends THE GIFT OF SKI, promising adventure, fresh mountain air, and powder days.

Liftopia, the largest online and mobile marketplace for lift tickets and other mountain activities, offers two ways to give the gift of ski this holiday season:

  • Purchase date-specific lift tickets at more than 250 resorts in North America on – perfect if you’re traveling with the recipient or know when they’d like to hit the slopes. Worried trip details may change? Buy Value Plus or Flexible tickets, offering the ability to change dates.
  • Load up a Liftopia Gift Card, which can be purchased at any amount from $5 to $1,000 and used toward lift tickets, lessons and more at any of Liftopia’s 250+ partner resorts. No extra fees, no expiration dates, and they can be sent digitally or printed.

A blog post detailing who the gift of ski is perfect for this holiday season can be found here.

As a reminder, with Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on a Friday this year, it’s the perfect time to plan a holiday weekend on the slopes. While everyone else is inside unwrapping presents on Dec. 25 or watching football (or nursing hangovers) on Jan. 1, ski areas will be free of crowds and long lift lines, meaning wide-open runs and more powder time! To draw people out of their homes and onto the slopes, Liftopia partner resorts offer some of the biggest discounts of the season on lift tickets, in some instances up to 85% off window rates when purchased online and in advance.
