BROOMFIELD, Colo. – Aug. 1, 2019 – Monday, Sept. 2 is the last chance to receive the lowest price for the new Epic Day Pass and the entire suite of Epic Season Pass options, which now provides all skiers and riders with incredible flexibility and unmatched value, whether they want to ski or ride just one day – or every day – of the season.
 
As a part of making Epic for Everyone, Vail Resorts announced earlier this year that it would extend the same value and flexibility to all skiers and riders that was traditionally available only to season pass holders. With the introduction of the Epic Day Pass, a customizable pass for skiers and riders who may not need the unlimited access offered by traditional season passes, skiing and riding is more accessible and affordable than ever, with discounts up to 50% off of lift ticket window prices and as low as $106 for one day of skiing at any of the Company’s North American resorts. Guests can lower their cost per day by adding more days and selecting the number of days they plan to ski or ride – from one day to seven days – and whether or not to add holiday access. Guests can use their Epic Day Pass throughout the season at any of the Company’s North American owned resorts, including Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Whistler Blackcomb, Keystone, Crested Butte, Park City, and more. Those purchasing four or more days will also get access to Telluride, Sun Valley, Snowbasin, and the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies.
 
For guests looking to ski more days in a season, the Epic Pass continues to offer the best access at the best price with unlimited, unrestricted access to all of the Company’s owned resorts for only $939, with additional partner access at Telluride, Hakuba Valley, Verbier, Courchevel, and the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies. New for the 2019-20 season, the Epic Pass also includes partner access to Sun Valley, Snowbasin and Rusutsu Resort in Japan. For skiers and riders willing to navigate around a few peak dates, the Epic Local Pass offers an incredible value with access to many of the same destinations for only $699, including ten combined days at Vail, Whistler Blackcomb, and Beaver Creek, with holiday restrictions, and two days each at Snowbasin and Sun Valley.
 
Just last week, subject to certain conditions and regulatory review, Vail Resorts announced that it plans to acquire Peak Resorts, which will add 17 U.S. ski areas to its network of world-class resorts included on the Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass, Military Epic Pass, and Epic Day Pass. Located near major metropolitan areas, including New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, the resorts include Mount Snow in Vermont; Hunter Mountain in New York; Attitash Mountain Resort, Wildcat Mountain and Crotched Mountain in New Hampshire; Liberty Mountain Resort, Roundtop Mountain Resort, Whitetail Resort, Jack Frost and Big Boulder in Pennsylvania; Alpine Valley, Boston Mills, Brandywine and Mad River Mountain in Ohio; Hidden Valley and Snow Creek in Missouri; and Paoli Peaks in Indiana.
 
Guests who purchase their season pass now can still take advantage of summer benefits which vary by resort but include free scenic gondola ride access, summer food and beverage discounts and the ability to purchase a reduced price Epic Discovery Activity Pass.
