Epic Local Pass 2019-2020 - Northstar California Ski Resort Ski School

Epic Local Pass

While the name is somewhat confusing, the Epic Local Pass is not limited to locals. Rather, it's geared more for anyone who wants a more affordable option than the Epic Pass with access to most of the Vail resorts (with a few restrictions). It does not include access to Telluride and the Canadian Rockies. For this ski season, this pass does not include the following holiday dates:

  • Nov. 26-27, 2021
  • Dec. 26-31, 2021
  • Jan. 15, 2022
  • Feb. 19-20, 2022

  • 10 Buddy Tickets at a discounted flat rate (when purchased by May 31, 2021)

Rockies

Epic Day Pass 2019-2020 - Snowman

Epic Day Passes Both Restricted and Unrestricted (and Limited!)

For the 2021-2022 season, we offer the Epic Day Passes for one to seven days of skiing. There are four categories: restricted, unrestricted, limited restricted and limited unrestrictive. Does it sound complicated? It's not. The restricted passes have holiday blackout dates and the limited passes have fewer participating resorts. This allows you to find the pass that works for you and possibly save money.

If you know where you want to ski and when you want to ski, you can narrow down your choices. If you are not sure when and where you want to ski, the Unrestricted Epic Day Pass will give you the most flexibility. But if you know you want to ski at, say, Lake Tahoe, during a non-holiday period, you can save the most money with a Limited Restricted Epic Day Pass.

For any of the below passes, you purchase the number of dates you want to ski or ride — from one day to seven days. The days do not need to be consecutive. Here's a quick look at the Epic Day Passes:

  • Restricted Epic Day Pass — Select holiday blackout periods. Ski at 30+ Vail resorts. Less expensive than Unrestricted. Range from $87 to $517 for adults ($45 to $268 for kids).
  • Unrestricted Epic Day Pass — No holiday blackout periods. Ski at 30+ Vail resorts. Up to 50 percent off. Range from $103 to $783 for adults ($53 to $399 for kids).
  • Limited Restricted Epic Day Pass — This pass has the same benefits of the Restricted Epic Day Pass with holiday blackout periods but has some resort restrictions (and therefore a cheaper price).
  • Limited Unrestricted Epic Day Pass — This pass has no blackouts and the same benefits of the Unrestricted Epic Day Pass but has some resort restrictions (and therefore a cheaper price).

The resorts accessible for each pass may vary slightly, so be sure to check your ticket before you purchase.

The Restricted Epic Day Pass and Limited Restricted Epic Day Pass blackout dates are:

  • Nov. 26-27, 2021
  • Dec. 26-31, 2021
  • Jan. 15, 2022
  • Feb. 19-20, 2022

For the majority of you skiers and riders who plan to take one or perhaps two ski vacations, the Epic Day pass is the most practical and economical choice. It allows you to lock in the best rates of the season without committing to a full Epic Pass. Plus you do not have to select your dates, and they do not have to be consecutive. You can buy the pass that suits your ski plans.

All Epic Day Pass holders can take advantage of Epic Mountain rewards with 20 percent off food, lodging, rentals and more. This pass does not include Buddy Passes or Ski-With-A-Friend Tickets.

The Epic Day Pass offers skiing or riding at the following resorts (the ones followed by "L" are on the Limited passes:

What Is the Difference Between Epic Buddy Tickets and Ski-With-A-Friend Tickets?

Certain eligible Epic Passes purchased before May 31, 2021, come pre-loaded with a set number of Epic Buddy Tickets and Ski-With-A-Friend Tickets that give discounts for friends and family beginning Dec. 8. The tickets are not the same thing!

  • Epic Buddy Tickets are discounted tickets that stay the same price all season long (up to 45 percent off). They are available at Vail Ski Resorts (not partner resorts).
  • Ski-With-A-Friend Tickets are single-day lift tickets that are discounted from the window price, but these prices fluctuate throughout the season. You can save up to 30 percent.

Both Epic Buddy and Ski-With-A-Friend tickets must be purchased online by the pass holder and also picked up by BOTH the pass holder and friend at the ski resort. Here's how to do it (hop back closer to season start for the latest information):

  1. Pass holders sign in to their Epic account.
  2. Pass Holders make a reservation for the day and resort they want to ski at (may not be necessary in 2021-2022 season).
  3. Pass holders buy Buddy Tickets or Ski With a Friend tickets online.
  4. The ticket acts as a reservation.
  5. Both the pass holder and friend must be at the window on reservation day to pick up the ticket.

Not all Epic Pass options come with Buddy Pass and Ski With A Friend Tickets. We know you have a ton of questions about this. You can find ticket pricing, savings, and answers to your questions about Buddy Tickets and Ski With a Friend Tickets here.

Summer Scenic Access

If you purchase the Epic Pass in the spring, you get Summer Scenic Access to resorts with your season pass beginning May 15, 2021. Your Epic Rewards kick in with 20% off food and beverage, lodging, bike rentals, Epic Mountain Express and golf. Summer lift access includes free scenic access on chairlifts and/or gondolas.

Summer access varies by pass type. The Epic 1-7 Day Passes do not include summer lift access. Passes that receive Summer Scenic Access include Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass, Summit Value Pass, Keystone Plus Pass, Tahoe Local Pass, Kirkwood Pass, Park City Youth Pass, 65+ Keystone Breck Pass, Senior 70+ 10 Day Pass, Stevens Pass Select Pass, Stevens Pass Premium Pass, Crested Butte Pass, Northeast Value Pass, Northeast Midweek Value Pass, Ohio Pass, Hidden Valley Pass, Snow Creek Pass, Paoli Peaks Pass.

*Summer access is valid at the same resorts as your winter access. Does not include bike haul or access to partner resorts.

If I buy a pass but have to work oversees through the whole season, and I have not used it at all, can it be transferred to the next year? Especially if I could inform Epic about before the season starts?

Hi Snieguole,

We'd suggest reaching out to Vail Resorts directly about any questions regarding EPIC Pass refunds or credit rollover, as the EPIC Pass terms and conditions list specific criteria for Personal Event Refunds and require proof of verification.

sorry if this has been asked before but.. i am traveling from the UK to Whistler (only) for 11 days. i am trying to work out whether to buy an Epic local pass to cover 10 days in Whistler or the 10 day Edge card, they seem to be a similar price. Questions re the epic pass : 1) do i have to decide before hand which of the 11 days i ski?

you say there is no redemption date or pre booking... do i just rock up each day at the lift queue and present my epic pass and they notch one day off? 2) can you think why the web chat at epic pass say they wouldn't recommend epic local for just 10 days in whistler? 3) am i right in thinking that the epic pass is quoted in US$ and the Edge card in CA$? thanks

Hi Harriet,

Vail Resorts does not anticipate that EPIC Pass Holders will need reservations for the 2021-2022 season, so you should not have to choose in advance. They will scan your pass each day when you access the lift - but stay tuned in case anything changes. We're not exactly sure why the web chat wouldn't recommend the EPIC Local Pass, but it may have to do with holiday restrictions for the EPIC Local Pass versus no holiday restrictions for the EPIC Pass. The EDGE Cards also have holiday restrictions depending on which pass you get. So either way, make sure your dates don't fall into any blackout periods! Yes, the prices for the EPIC Passes are in U.S. dollars and the EDGE Cards are in Canadian dollars.

I'm purchasing some buddy passes for family to come skiing with us at a local resort. When I tried to add a child traveler, it said the buddy pass was not valid...can you only use buddy passes for adults? Would it matter at the resort if I put an "adult" age in, but the ticket was really for a child/teen? Also, I accidently assigned some to myself before I realized it was looking for the guest's name and I'm wondering if I need to re-book those.

I have the Season Epic Pass and have reserved a ski day for myself at Jack Frost Mtn for December 27th. Trying to order Buddy passes for my 3 nieces (age 17, 16 and 10). Will not allow me to checkout. Asks for birthdate and then states "Traveler's age is not valid for this product". I cannot find any stated age restrictions for the Buddy Passes. Have repeatedly tried to contact Epic Pass customer service and get message to "call back due to high call volume". Do you have any knowledge of age restrictions or suggestions to resolve? Thank you!

We'll be sure to update you as soon as we hear that this is resolved! In the meantime, they are recommending that guests purchase a full price ticket to reserve their day, then visit a ticket window once in resort to get the Buddy Pass validated and receive a refund for the difference.

Hi Somen!

This can vary by resort, so we'd recommend logging into your My Epic account and seeing the offers available for the dates that you're looking to visit to directly compare the Buddy Pass cost vs. the Epic Day Pass cost. Know that Buddy Passes are subject to availability and capacity limitations, though, so from that standpoint, an Epic Day Pass may have better availability!

Keep hopping!

Hi Chris!

We are still waiting for additional details on the price increase; at this time, Sept. 17 is the last day to apply credit toward the purchase of a 2020-2021 Epic Pass for previous passholders. As soon as we know more, we'll be sure to update!

To clarify, we can use Epic 4 day pass at Telluride, correct? Do we need to make reservations to ski on our days?

Hi Barb,

Epic 4-Day Pass, Epic 5-Day Pass, Epic 6-Day Pass and Epic 7-Day Pass holders will receive up to seven days total of skiing or snowboarding at Telluride Ski Resort with no blackout dates as part of their total days. As of now, Telluride has not yet announced whether reservations will be required.

Hoppy planning!

My husband and I are going to ski for six days at Whistler. Should we buy 2 6 day passes or 1 6 day pass and get buddy passes? Or is there something else That we should consider. We are over 65 in the epic does not have a discounted senior tickeit anymore.

Hi Caryn!

We recommend that you buy two 6-day passes, since the 6-day tickets do not have Buddy Passes benefits (only the full season Epic Pass). Vail has not yet released the Buddy Pass prices for this season, but in the past, the discounted rate was not as good of a deal as the Epic Pass price. Hope this helps!

Last week I took a survey on the Epic pass. One of the things it included was a list of benefits available. One of these was a free seasonal tuneup. I can not find anything on the epic pass website on this. There were other things on the list. Is there a place I can find these?

Hi Robert!

We think we found it! Click here and scroll down to "Ski and Snowboard Tunes" for a list of locations that participate in the tuneup/wax benefit.

Hi Catherine!

We don't know the exact dates just yet, but we do know it's coming up quickly! Last year, the last day to purchase was in mid-November, so if you're thinking about it, we'd recommend hopping on it soon :)

Hi Ricardo!

The Epic Pass serves as your lift ticket. Just be sure to check out dates for each type of Epic Pass to make sure it fits with your vacation timeframe!

When you buy Epic Season passes the benefit of 6 buddy passes are mentioned and ski with a friend options are stated giving the impression that those passes are bonus. They are not. When you go back to read about redeeming there are date of purchase requirements and the buddy passes are $2 dollars cheaper than daily prices. Disappointed.

Hi Michele,

The Ski with a Friend tickets are discounted from the window prices, which changes throughout the season. Buddy Tickets are discounted tickets with a flat price set a the beginning of the season that does not change. You can see more details here.

read the fine print. Military Epic Pass does NOT include A Basin. Wasted a great day learning that one the hard way!

It did not include Absin for the military pass, which is my favorite place to ski. However, complaining that it does not include a resort for the price you paid makes you sound ungrateful and entitled. I am so thankful we got to am a whole season for only $99!

Epic military does include A Basin. I've used it 3 times so far this season. Who told you it didnt? They are not owned by Vail, but have an agreement. I used mine in December and January 3 times.
