BROOMFIELD, Colo., March 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The only thing better than locking in your Epic Pass, is locking in your Epic Pass at the lowest price of the year. So, heads up skiers and riders – 2023/24 Epic Pass options are now available to purchase, and with new benefits and experiences. If you love to ski Vail, Whistler Blackcomb, Breckenridge, Park City Mountain, Stowe, Seven Springs and more great resorts, there has never been a better time to be an Epic Pass Holder.
For the upcoming 2023/24 winter season, benefits of being an Epic Pass Holder include:
Mobile Pass: Guests will be able to store their pass directly on their phone, put their phone in their pocket, and get scanned, hands free, via Bluetooth® Low Energy technology. This eliminates the need to wait in the ticket window line or wait for your pass to arrive in the mail. It will also help reduce plastic and RFID chip waste. Plastic cards will still be available to our guests who cannot or do not want to use their phone as their pass. Mobile Pass will be available on the new My Epic app, coming in the fall of 2023.
Mountain Resort Investments: Following 18 new lift upgrades this season, Vail Resorts is investing in additional lift projects planned for next season, including at Keystone (Colorado), Breckenridge (Colorado), Whistler Blackcomb (Canada), Stevens Pass (Washington) and Attitash (New Hampshire). At Keystone, a new 6-person high-speed lift will increase lift-served terrain by 555 acres in Bergman Bowl. Breckenridge's investment is focused on enhancing the beginner and children's experience on Peak 8. All lift projects are subject to regulatory approval and dates are subject to change.
New European Partner Resort Experiences: Last year, Vail Resorts acquired a majority stake in Andermatt-Sedrun in Switzerland. Next season, Epic Pass is expanding its European resort access with the addition of Switzerland's Disentis as a partner resort. Disentis is the neighboring mountain to Andermatt-Sedrun. When combined, Andermatt-Sedrun-Disentis offer guests access to the largest ski area in the heart of Switzerland. Epic Pass also signed partnership extensions with Les 3 Vallées in France, Ski Arlberg in Austria, and Skirama Dolomiti in Italy, and has an existing partnership at Verbier4Vallées in Switzerland. Additional international partners include Hakuba Valley and Rusutsu in Japan, and Resorts of the Canadian Rockies in Canada.
Buddy Tickets: Pass Holders who purchase early will receive 10 Buddy Tickets and six Ski with a Friend Tickets to bring friends and family to join the ski and ride experience at a significant discount.
No Reservations: No reservations will be required at any resort on the Epic Pass for the 2023/24 season, except Telluride Ski Resort. More information on how Epic Pass Holders can make reservations at Telluride next season is available here.
Epic Mountain Rewards: Pass Holders receive 20 percent off on-mountain food and beverage, lodging, group ski and ride school lessons, equipment rentals and more. Pass Holders also receive summer benefits at eligible resorts, including Summer Scenic Gondola rides, 20 percent off summer food, lodging, bike rentals and golf.
Epic FlexPay: Pass Holders have access to easy monthly installments with Epic FlexPay, powered by Uplift. The deferred payment option includes zero down payment, zero interest, and if purchased early, zero payments until September.
Epic Coverage: Passes are non-refundable except through Epic Coverage, which provides refunds for certain resort closures and personal events such as job loss, injury or illness. Epic Coverage is provided at no additional cost and Pass Holders should review the Epic Coverage Terms and Conditions. Lift tickets are fully refundable but do not provide the value or flexibility of passes.
