Epic Passes Increase in Price After May 27 1
Author thumbnail By M. Scott Smith, DCSki Editor

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, and also the last day to get the lowest prices on Epic Passes for the 2024-2025 winter ski season. After May 27, 2024, Epic Passes will increase in price (and, if history is a guide, continue increasing at regular intervals until the start of the season). In addition to receiving discounted pricing, skiers and boarders who purchase an Epic Pass now will receive discounts on summer activities at select resorts within the Vail Resorts family.

The “top-of-the-line” pass is the $982 Epic Pass, which provides unlimited, unrestricted access to 42 mountain resorts across North America as well as select International resorts. A more economical option is the $731 Epic Local Pass, which offers virtually the same access as the full Epic Pass, with some date and visit restrictions at a handful of resorts. Mid-Atlantic skiers and boarders might be tempted by the $600 Northeast Value Pass, which provides unlimited access to all of Vail’s properties in the Mid-Atlantic as well as limited access to Northeast resorts such as Okemo and Stowe. Local ski areas in the Vail Resorts family include Big Boulder/Jack Frost, Hidden Valley, Laurel Mountain, Liberty Mountain, Roundtop, Seven Springs, and Whitetail Resorts.

Snow may be a distant memory, but now is the time to lock in savings on 2024-2025 “mega” ski passes such as the Vail Resorts Epic Pass.

Skiers can still save money if they don’t purchase an unlimited pass by purchasing an Epic Day Pass for 1-7 days, which provides significant discounts over the ticket window price. An Epic Day Pass valid at local resorts such as Seven Springs can cost as low as $44 per day when a 7-day Epic Day Pass is purchased, for example.

According to Anna Weltz, Senior Communications Manager for the Vail Resorts Mid-Atlantic region, purchasers of the Epic Pass will receive summer benefits such as scenic summer chairlift rides, 20% off lodging and select on-mountain dining at Seven Springs, 20% off lodging and golf at Liberty Mountain, and 20% off golf at Whitetail Resort.

Skiers buying an Epic Pass by May 27 will also receive two discounted Buddy Tickets and a flexible $49 down payment option.

Thanks for the heads-up on passes, Scott.

In past years, I've gotten 2 further discounts on an Epic Northeast Pass: 1) a discount for midweek (Northeast Midweek Pass), and 2) a further discount for the senior rate.

If you're not buying an Epic season pass but want some discounts at Epic resorts, I've found Epic's one-day tickets (= Epic Day Passes) bought well in advance via Epic's "passes" portal are a great deal. Once of the best in skiing these days, in my experience.
