BROOMFIELD, Colo. –Nov. 5, 2019– Sunday, Nov. 24 is the last chance to purchase the entire suite of Epic Season Pass options, which now provides skiers and riders with incredible flexibility and unmatched value, whether they want to ski or ride just one day – or every day – of the season.

A combination of world-class snowmaking and favorable temperatures have allowed Stowe, Okemo, Mount Snow in Vermont and Wildcat in New Hampshire to start making snow at higher elevations. Both Mount Snow and Wildcat are preparing to open for the 2019-20 season this Saturday, Nov. 9.

Earlier this year, Vail Resorts added an additional five Northeastern ski areas to its portfolio of resorts, providing Epic Pass holders living near major East Coast cities – including New York and Boston – the ability to ski close to home and at resorts like Vail, Whistler Blackcomb, Park City and more, all on the same pass. In addition to Stowe, Okemo and Mount Sunapee, the Epic Pass now provides unlimited, unrestricted access to Mount Snow in Vermont; Hunter Mountain in New York; and Attitash Mountain Resort, Wildcat Mountain and Crotched Mountain in New Hampshire. For the 2019-20 season, Vail Resorts will honor and continue to sell all Peak Resorts pass products, and Peak Resorts’ pass holders will have the option to upgrade to an Epic Pass or Epic Local Pass. The deadline for Peaks Resorts’ pass holders to upgrade is Sunday, November 17.

As a part of 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, allowing guests to ski from as low as $95 per day 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 Stowe, Okemo, Mount Sunapee, Mount Snow, Hunter, 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.

For guests looking to ski more days in a season, the Epic Pass continues to offer the best access at the best price with unlimited, unrestricted access to all of the Company’s owned resorts including Vail, Whistler Blackcomb, Park City and Breckenridge for only $989, with additional partner access at Telluride, Hakuba Valley, Verbier, Courchevel, and the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies including Kicking Horse and Fernie. Partner access to Sun Valley, Snowbasin, and Rusutsu Resort in Japan is new for the 2019-20 season.

For skiers and riders willing to navigate around a few peak dates, the Epic Local Pass offers an incredible value with access to many of the same destinations, including unlimited access to Stowe (with holiday restrictions) and unlimited, unrestricted access to Okemo, Mount Sunapee, Mount Snow, Hunter, Attitash, Wildcat and Crotched starting at only $739. New for the 2019-20 season, the Northeast College Pass offers unlimited access to Stowe (with holiday restrictions) and unlimited, unrestricted access to Okemo and Mount Sunapee for only $409.

As part of Vail Resorts’ two-year, $35 million capital investment into select resorts including Okemo in Vermont and Mount Sunapee in New Hampshire, the Company has executed the first phase of investments at Okemo with upgrades to three on-mountain restaurants, Summit Lodge, Sugar House and 43° North. Both restaurants received upgraded concepts and menus, as well as a new look and feel to interior finishes and furnishings.
