Vail Resorts slash Epic Pass prices by twenty percent for next season

Park City, Utah.

Vail Resorts have announced permanent twenty percent price reductions on a number of their Epic products including the full international Epic Pass with unlimited access to 37 resorts in 2021/2022 including Perisher, Hotham and Falls Creek for the 2022 season.

The full 2021/2022 Epic Pass has been slashed from USD$979 to USD$783. That’s down to  AUD$1032 on today’s exchange rate.

Other pass products to receive the permanent baseline price reduction are the North American Epic Local Pass, Epic Day Pass; Whistler Blackcomb Unlimited, Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass and EDGE Cards; Summit Value Pass, Tahoe Local and Value Pass, and Northeast Value and Midweek Pass; Military Epic Pass and Adaptive Pass; and many more.

The Epic Day Pass for one to seven days of riding is now USD$87 (AUD$114) for one day or USD$74 (AUD$94) a day for the seven day pass.

“The new prices announced today not only provide value to existing skiers and riders, but we also believe they will contribute to the growth and vitality of our sport as we bring new people and higher engagement into the industry, which we think is imperative,” said Vail Resorts CEO Rob Katz.

These prices were last seen in the 2015/2016 season, when the Epic Pass had 11 resorts. Today the pass offers access to 70 international resorts including Vail, Park City and Whistler Blackcomb.

All 2021/22 pass products will come with Epic Coverage, at no additional cost, which provides refunds for personal events like job loss, injury or illness, as well as for certain resort closures, including closures due to COVID-19.
