The Tahoe Local Pass, priced at $589, and the Tahoe Value Pass, priced at $499, continue to offer the best value and variety for skiing and riding with differentiated experiences and varied terrain at the Best of Tahoe resorts

As a part of making Epic for Everyone, Vail Resorts announced earlier this year that it would extend the same value and flexibility to all skiers and riders that was traditionally available only to season pass holders. With the introduction of the Epic Day Pass, a customizable pass for skiers and riders who may not need the unlimited access offered by traditional season passes, skiing and riding is more accessible and affordable than ever, with discounts up to 50% off of lift ticket window prices and as low as $106 for one day of skiing at any of the Company’s North American resorts. Guests can lower their cost per day by adding more days and selecting the number of days they plan to ski or ride – from one day to seven days – and whether or not to add holiday access. Guests can use their Epic Day Pass throughout the season at any of the Company’s North American owned resorts, including Heavenly, Kirkwood, Northstar, Vail, Whistler Blackcomb, Park City, and more. Those purchasing four or more days will also get access to Telluride, Sun Valley, Snowbasin, and the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies.

The Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass, Tahoe Local Pass and the Tahoe Value Pass continue to offer the best value and variety for skiing and riding with differentiated experiences and varied terrain at the Best of Tahoe resorts. The Epic Pass provides unlimited, unrestricted access to all of the Company’s owned resorts including Heavenly, Kirkwood, Northstar, Whistler Blackcomb and more, plus additional partner access at Telluride, and the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies. New for the 2019-20 season, the Epic Pass includes partner access to Sun Valley, Snowbasin and Rusutsu Resort in Japan. For skiers and riders willing to navigate around a few peak dates, the Epic Local Pass offers an unmatched value with access to many of the same destinations, including unlimited access to Heavenly, Kirkwood and Northstar, and up to ten days at Whistler Blackcomb, with holiday restrictions priced at only $699.

The Tahoe Local Pass, at $589 for adults, features unlimited access to Heavenly, Northstar, and Kirkwood, with limited holiday restrictions, and a combined total of five days at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Park City and, new for the 2019-20 season, Crested Butte, with limited holiday restrictions. The Tahoe Value Pass, at $499 for adults, features unlimited access to Heavenly, with holiday restrictions, and limited access to Northstar and Kirkwood, with holiday restrictions and Saturdays excluded.
