Vail Resorts unveiled the latest version of The Epic Pass today, which provides access to 18 ski mountains in five states (California, Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota and Utah), plus two countries outside the U.S.: Austria and Switzerland.
In addition to the addition of Canyons Resort in Utah to The Epic Pass, an Epic 4-Day Pass has been added to the mix. That’s a lot of addition, but there you go.
Just so you know exactly everywhere you can go with The Epic Pass, it includes unlimited, unrestricted skiing and riding at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin and Eldora in Colorado; Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah; Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in Lake Tahoe; Afton Alps in Minnesota and Mt. Brighton in Michigan. Plus, you get five free days at Verbier, Switzerland and five free days at Arlberg, Austria.
The Epic Pass is $689 for adults and $359 for children (ages 5-12), but Vail Resorts says these prices are only guaranteed through Sept. 2. The Epic 4-Day Pass is $349 for adults and $199 for children ages 5-12, while the Epic 7-Day is $529 for adults and $269 for children.
Both the 4-Day and 7-Day passes are good at Arapahoe Basin, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Vail, Canyons Resort, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood.

“Not since the opening of Blue Sky Basin at Vail have we seen such a significant terrain expansion at a North American ski resort as with the addition of Peak 6 at Breckenridge this winter. We’re also adding a new high-speed six-person lift in Mid-Vail to get guests into the Back Bowls faster and opening a new on-mountain restaurant at the base of Beaver Creek’s famed Birds of Prey race course. And then there’s the fourth generation of EpicMix – Epic Academy – which offers a unique way to earn and share your accomplishments in our world-class ski and ride schools,” said Kirsten Lynch, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts.
