The Epic Pass: unlocking access to ski resorts across the globe

A week ski holiday just isn’t enough is it? So what about the chance to go to ski resorts around the world with unlimited restrictions?

The Epic Pass owned by the Vail Resorts Company, offers the flexibility to ski where you want, when you want under one epic pass. Offering 72,032 acres of terrain, it is ideal for visitors who are looking for flexibility to ski throughout the ski season and into the summer months in Vail Resort Company’s owned resorts and partner resorts around the world.

The Epic Pass has three membership tiers: Epic, Epic Local and Epic Day. Essentially, the more you pay the more resorts you have access to. But it does come in at a hefty price! 


The Epic Pass allows unlimited access to 19 North American resorts, 3 Australian resorts and limited access to resorts in Canada, Europe and Japan. Ski resorts in America include four of its five largest all owned by Vail Resorts. These include Vail, Whistler Blackcomb, Breckenridge, Keystone, Beaver Creek, Park City, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in Lake Tahoe. It also includes Pensher resort in Australia and 30 European resorts including Verbier in the Swiss 4 Valleys, the 3 Valleys in France, the Arlberg in Austria and the Dolomites in Italy. There are normally restrictions on how many days are offered at each resort that is not owned by Vail Resorts.

New for the 2019/2020 season are the North American resorts of Sun Valley, Snowbasin, Telluride, the Australian resorts of Falls Creek and Hotham and also the powder haven of Rusutsu in Japan.

The Epic Pass is an ideal option for globetrotting skiers looking for adventure and wanting as much time on the mountains as they can.
