Vail Resorts’ Epic Passes now on sale for 2015-16

The Epic Pass, which gives holders access to three of Summit County’s four ski resorts and other mountains run by Vail Resorts, is now on sale for the 2015-16 winter season.

Current benefits and prices on the passes are guaranteed through April 12. In recent years, prices have risen in the months before the company stopped selling season passes in late November.

The full Epic Pass offers skiers and snowboarders unlimited access to Breckenridge Ski Resort, Keystone Resort, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Vail Mountain, Beaver Creek and six other U.S. resorts for $769 for adults, $399 for children.

The adult price is $40 more and the kids price is $20 more than the season passes cost when they went on sale in March 2014.

One change to the pass for the coming season is the inclusion of the largest ski resort in the country. Park City Mountain Resort was added to the pass in 2014 and will merge with the neighboring Utah ski area Canyons Resort this summer.

As of March 10, skiers and snowboarders can apply the cost of their day lift tickets to the price of an Epic Pass for 2015-16 at the season pass offices at any ski area owned by Vail Resorts.

Skiers can also put $49 down by April 12 to lock in the lowest pass price and pay the balance in September.

Summit County residents and regular visitors often buy the company’s more restricted season passes, including the Epic Local ($579 for adults, $459 for teens, $299 for children), Summit Value Pass ($489 for adults, $389 for teens, $269 for children) and Keystone A-Basin Pass ($299 for adults, $219 for children).

Vail Resorts’ Epic 7-Day passes ($579 for adults, $299 for kids) and Epic 4-Day passes ($389 for adults, $219 for children) also went on sale.

All Vail Resorts season passes come with discounts and offers on lodging, dining, ski rentals, equipment, ski school and special events, and most season pass holders automatically receive six discounted Ski-With-a-Friend tickets.
