Telluride Ski Resort in Colorado is the latest resort to join Vail Resorts’ Epic Pass ski program for the 2018-19 season.
The Epic Pass allows skiers and snowboarders full-access to all of Vail Resorts’ properties, which includes slopes in Vail, Colo., Park City, Utah, and Whistler, British Columbia. In all, pass holders get access to 46 mountain resorts around the world.
Skiers and snowboarders in metro Detroit can also benefit from the Epic Pass, as Mt. Brighton is owned by Vail Resorts and is included in the program.
Telluride Ski Resort, which has been rated the “No. 1 Ski Resort in North America” five of the last six years by Condé Nast Traveler, is not a Vail Resorts property, but Epic Pass holders will still get limited access. That access includes seven days of skiing or snowboarding with no blackout dates. Once the seven days have been used, pass holders can get 50 percent off lift tickets at Telluride.
“Telluride is excited to join the Epic Pass and a collection of world-class mountain resorts that skiers and snowboarders around the world come back to time and again,” says Bill Jenson, CEO of Telluride Ski and Golf. “This new season pass alliance will provide an incredible benefit for both Telluride guests and our resort community.”
Epic Passes for 2018-19 will go on sale in March. Prices have not been released, but an adult pass for 2017-18 cost $859 and a child pass (ages 5-12) was $449.
