BRIGHTON, Mich. — Oct. 5, 2015 — When summer gives way to cool autumn nights and freezing morning temperatures, it can only mean one thing: ski season is right around the corner in Michigan. With Mt. Brighton’s opening day of the 2015-16 season less than two months away, it’s the best time for skiers and snowboarders to prepare for an epic winter, starting with purchasing Michigan’s most valuable season pass, the Epic Local Pass.

For those looking to ski or ride locally as well as hit the slopes out West, the Epic Local Pass offers unlimited, unrestricted skiing or riding at Mt. Brighton, as well as Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado; with limited restrictions at Park City in Utah – now the largest ski resort in the U.S. after being combined with nearby Canyons Resort – and Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood at Lake Tahoe. It also includes a total of 10 days at Vail and Beaver Creek in Colorado with holiday restrictions.

“October is the perfect time to get your season pass, enroll your kids in our acclaimed Mogul Mouse or Ski Girls Rock instructional programs, or sign up a team for our popular Adult League Racing,” said Mt. Brighton General Manager Taylor Ogilvie.

To assist guests in getting the most out of winter, Mt. Brighton has compiled this handy “Back to Ski” checklist:
  1. The Epic Local Pass pays for itself in just four days and features unlimited, unrestricted days at Mt. Brighton, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin – plus 10 total days at Vail and Beaver Creek. The Epic Local Pass also provides season-long access to Park City in Utah and Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood at Lake Tahoe. Sunday, Oct. 11 is the last day to purchase it for $599.
  2. Enroll kids in the Mogul Mouse instructional program. Mt. Brighton's children's program is getting accolades from across the Midwest for its effective and fun methods for teaching kids. Mt. Brighton’s Children's Ski and Snowboard School welcomes children ages three to 12 with programs for all ability levels; each separated appropriately by skill and age group.
  3. Check out the Ski Girls Rock program at Mt. Brighton. A Vail Resorts-exclusive program, inspired and designed by Lindsey Vonn, the three-day program for girls ages seven to 14 is led by Mt. Brighton female instructors and focuses not only on improving skiing and racing skills, but also empowering girls through the sport and building their confidence while developing friendships, teamwork and social skills.
