While Colorado skiers and riders were busy reaping powder, Tuesday morning came with a reminder for next season. The best values for 2019-20 passes were announced — and one offer from Vail Resorts is like never before.
The company has a new selection in the Epic Pass lineup: day tickets being dubbed “Epic for Everyone.” Ranging from one day (starting at $106 for adults) to seven ($621), the buyer can save close to 50 percent off regular prices at any of Vail’s North American resorts, including Vail Mountain, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Crested Butte and Keystone.
Along with staples Epic and Epic Local passes, Vail is returning the Military Epic Pass for a second season. Also on Tuesday, rival Ikon Pass announced its early bird deals for 2019-20.
