BROOMFIELD, Colo. – Aug. 24, 2016 – While Labor Day traditionally marks the end of summer, the countdown to the 2016-2017 ski and snowboard season is just beginning. The Epic Pass unlocks the greatest value in the ski industry with unlimited and unrestricted access to nine world-class resorts in the U.S. including Vail, Breckenridge and Park City. Available for just $809 for adults, the Epic Pass locks in savings of up to 40 percent versus individual lift tickets. Skiers and snowboarders must purchase the 2016-2017 Epic Pass by Monday, Sept. 5 for the season’s guaranteed lowest price.

Pass holders have the flexibility to follow the snow with unrestricted access to 13 resorts in the U.S. and abroad – including Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado, Park City in Utah, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood at Lake Tahoe, Perisher in Australia, Afton Alps in Minnesota, Mt. Brighton in Michigan and Wilmot Mountain just outside of Chicago.

“The Epic Pass is the most valuable pass in the industry, and that value is measured by more than just the price, said Kirsten Lynch, Vail Resorts’ chief marketing officer. It’s measured by the flexibility to ski when you want, where you want. You’re not restricted to just one resort, or a couple days here and a couple days there. It’s also measured by the consistent investment in our resorts, and the variety of experiences our resorts offer. When you look at it like that, there’s no comparison.”

Improvements this winter include the new Sun Up Express high speed quad in Vail’s legendary Back Bowls and a new restaurant with stunning views located on Breckenridge Ski Resort’s Peak 7. Endless options while using an Epic Pass include a trip to Park City in Utah to explore the largest ski resort in the United States, where an 8.5 minute ride in the Quicksilver Gondola provides access to 7,300 acres of terrain. It’s the special touches – like Cookie Time at Beaver Creek in Colorado and the Champagne Toast at Northstar at Lake Tahoe – that top off a perfect day of skiing and snowboarding with family and friends. At Heavenly get ready to ski all day and party all night, from enjoying the breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe to dancing with the Heavenly Angels, and Kirkwood stays true to its deep powder roots and legendary steeps. The Epic Pass unlocks access to the West’s premium ski resorts, where skiers and riders continually find the best and most reliable snow.

For just $609, skiers and snowboarders looking for additional savings can buy the Epic Local Pass offering unlimited, unrestricted skiing or riding at Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Afton Alps, Mt. Brighton and Wilmot Mountain with limited restrictions at Park City, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood. The Epic Local Pass also includes a total of 10 days at Vail and Beaver Creek with some holiday restrictions.
