$619 for 6 Mountains!! Epic Pass Returns for 2010-2011 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2010/09/10/619-for-6-mountains-epic-pass-returns-for-2010-2011/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2010/09/10/619-for-6-mountains-epic-pass-returns-for-2010-2011/#respond Fri, 10 Sep 2010 21:09:39 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=4573
If you follow this site at all, then you know how we feel about the Epic Pass. It’s easily one of the Top 5 deals in the country and certainly the best deal in Colorado. To recap, for $619, you get unlimited access to Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, A-Basin, Keystone, and Heavenly.

Side note: Last year’s Epic Pass was $579, only a $40 increase this year.

Each year, there’s one or two variations. This season, Vail Resorts offers the Epic Summit Pass for $419, which lets you ride Breck, Keystone, and A-Basin. If there’s any questions about which pass to get, definitely throw down the extra $200 and add three more mountains to your winter.

Each pass comes with some benefits. The best one is discounted tickets for your friends. We took advantage of a couple of these last season and rode Vail for around $55. Still a good chunk of change, but consider that a full day ticket was $97 and suddenly $55 looked pretty damn good.

Our recommendation: Don’t wait if you’re even considering purchasing an Epic Pass. There’s no official word on the Vail Resorts site if there will be a price increase or how long the passes will be available.
