Vail Resorts adds European ski locations to its Epic Pass
September 1, 2016
Vail Resorts has added several European locations to its Epic Pass for the 2016-17 season.
The season-long ski pass already includes local Colorado resorts including Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Vail as well as nine others around the United States and one in Australia. But the Broomfield-based company announced Thursday the inclusion of five international destinations for this year's pass holders.
Available at the lowest price of $809 for adults through Monday, Sept. 5 (epicpass.com), the Epic Pass now includes resorts in France (Les 3 Vallees, Paradiski and Tignes-Val d'Isere), Italy (Skirama Dolomiti Adamello Brenta), Switzerland (4 Vallees) and Austria (Arlberg). Arlberg and Les 3 Vallees were previously included on the pass for the 2013-14 season.
"There is nothing in the ski industry today that can compare to the value of the Epic Pass," Kirsten Lynch, Vail Resorts' chief marketing officer, said in a statement. "Whether you ski five days or 100, no pass is tailored to the way skiers and snowboarders actually want to access the best mountain in the world like the Epic Pass."
Vail Resorts announced the purchase of Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort in British Columbia for more than $1 billion last month. The world-renowned Canadian ski area will be added to the Epic Pass ticket package for the 2017-18 season.
