Example of how to get the most from your Epic Pass - Ski Anytime, Anywhere!

The Epic Pass provides the ultimate flexibility to locals and destination seekers with unlimited access to Vail's premier resorts. Finding fresh powder is a near certainty with this pass. Spend Christmas / New Years at Vail, Breck or Telluride. If you are based in the Northeast, watch the forecast and plan to enjoy a long weekend Stowe or Okemo or consider heading up to Mt. Sainte Anne and spending some time in Montreal. How about a last minute President's Weekend get away to wherever the snow looks best? For spring break, Park City is an easy flight to Salt Lake City and Whistler (2 hours from Vancouver) has a pedestrian base village with fun for all.

Epic Local

  • Skiing or riding for 10 days or less between Vail, Beaver Creek and Whistler

Value proposition
Early purchasers of the Epic Local can expect to breakeven with less than 5 days of skiing this season (relative to window rates). This pass also provides huge optionality. For less than 7 days, also consider Epic Day Passes.

Example - Exploring several regions and ensuring fresh snow

With access to premier resorts in most major ski regions in North America, the Epic Local Pass provides the best value to access them (as long as you can go outside of peak periods). Even with the restrictions, this pass offers tremendous flexibility and enhances the likelihood of finding fresh powder. Those based in the Northeast can enjoy a long weekend in Vermont (Stowe or Okemo), easily reach Park City, where days are unlimited and then take a slightly longer trip to Whistler, Beaver Creek or Vail. Take advantage of the large number of regions and diversity of conditions and follow the snow. For example, in March 2018, when the snow reports showed the lowest snowfall in more than 20 years at Vail, the Avant Ski team pivoted to Whistler for a powdery adventure.

Epic Day Passes
ACCESS FOR UP TO 37 RESORTS, 1 - 7 DAY OPTIONS

Best for

  • Epic Day passes offer ultimate value and flexibility when skiing or riding for 7 days or less 

  • One big holiday trip 

  • Optionality to ski or ride during peak periods. A 7 day pass with holiday access is only ~$100 more than 7 non-peak days

THREE TIERS OF DAY PASSES

  • Choose access to 22, 32 or all 37 owned and operated North American resorts
