Thursday is the final day to cash in on lower Epic Pass prices

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to correct the final day to purchase Epic Pass products before prices go up.

Thursday, Oct. 14, will be the last day to grab Epic Pass products at lower prices before the start of the 2021-22 ski season.

Earlier this year, Vail Resorts announced a price reset on all of its Epic Passes, reducing costs by 20% across the board. While Thursday represents the final chance for community members to lock in the lowest-guaranteed prices on their passes, the cost reduction from last season will continue throughout the season.

Currently priced at $799 for adults and $407 for children ages 5-12, the Epic Pass offers unlimited, unrestricted access to 34 North American resorts, including Keystone Resort and Breckenridge Ski Resort in Summit County. The pass also offers access to other Colorado ski areas, including Vail Mountain, Beaver Creek, Crested Butte and Telluride.

An adult Epic Local Pass costs $599; a child’s Epic Local Pass costs $311. The Epic Local Pass offers unlimited access to 26 resorts, including Keystone and Breckenridge. The pass also allows 10 days at Vail, Beaver Creek and Whistler Backcomb in Canada.

The Epic Day Pass is designed for those who plan to visit Vail Resort’s ski areas only a few times during the season. The pass allows users to purchase one to seven days of resort access at rates that are discounted depending on how many days are added and whether users want holiday access.

For those who want to stay in the area, there’s the Summit Value Pass and the Keystone Plus Pass. The Summit Value Pass, priced at $487, provides unlimited access to Keystone and Breckenridge. The $327 Keystone Plus Pass allows unlimited access to Keystone, spring access to Breckenridge after April 1 and five days at Crested Butte.

The start of ski season is nearly upon us as snow is being made up at the ski areas and the area seeing its first significant snowfalls of the season. Keystone, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area and Loveland Ski Area are in a race to open, as they all plan to open sometime this month. Breckenridge plans to open Nov. 12.
