Breaking Down the 2018-2019 Epic Passes — Which Is Right for You?

by Leap on April 10, 2018 1 Breckenridge

We're very hoppy to announce we're now selling Epic Passes at the Vail Ski Resorts for the 2018-2019 ski season. These passes are an awesome value over regular lift tickets, offer the most flexibility and are an excellent way to budget for winter ski vacation. With the Epic Passes you have the option of visiting 24 amazing ski resorts — yes, 24 resorts! That's more than double the number of resorts that were included in the Epic Pass last season. The Epic Passes are at their lowest price of the season, so you'll need to make like us frogs and hop to it soon if you want the most epic savings!

These passes are particularly good for families who want to visit multiple ski resorts, such as the Lake Tahoe area resorts (Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood) or the Denver-area resorts (Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone) all on one vacation. They work just as well if you want to make multiple ski or snowboarding trips to the top U.S. ski resorts for the 2018-2019 season such as Park City, Vail or Heavenly. For the 2018-2019 season, Vail Resorts have added Crested Butte and its sister resorts of Okemo in Vermont and Mount Sunapee in New Hampshire to its Epic Pass access.

You don't have to be a math whiz to know that the Epic Pass can save you dollars on your winter ski vacation. Even if you spring for the 4-Day Epic Pass (more details on it below!), you'll you'll have more flexibility than regular lift tickets and no blackout days at 17 resorts. (You can save even more by booking your ski hotel and car rental through us too!)

Undercover Tourist's Awesomely Epic Pass Options for the 2018-2019 Ski Season

Epic 4-Day Pass

The Epic 4-Day Pass is the perfect choice for families, especially first-time ski families, who are planning a winter vacation to the Vail Ski Resorts. It offers more flexibility than standard lift tickets in that you do not have to select your dates and your four days do not have to be consecutive. You are also not restricted to one resort. You can use it over any four days in the 2018-2019 ski season at the following resorts:

Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Park CityHeavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, Stowe, Arapahoe Basin, Telluride , Crested Butte, Okemo, Mount Sunapee, Whistler Blackcomb and the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies. Plus, you'll also get an additional 4 FREE days at Wilmot (Wisconsin), Afton Alps (Minnesota) or Mt. Brighton (Michigan).

If you use all four days and want to ski more, you'll be eligible for discounts on additional lift tickets.

Current cost of Epic 4-Day Pass: Adult - $439, Child - $239

Epic 4-Day Pass Examples:

You could take a weeklong trip to Vail, Colorado, and ski on alternating days. You could decide to split your days up among resorts and hop from Vail to nearby Beaver Creek, Breckenridge or Keystone.

You could plan two trips this 2018-2019 winter ski seasons, perhaps Park City in January, where you ski two days, and then for two days of skiing at Vail in March.

If you wanted to go all out, you could then tack on one more "bonus" trip to Wilmot, Afton Alps or Mt. Brighton for four more days of skiing.

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