Time to Buy your Epic Pass, Epic 7 Day Pass, Epic Local Pass, Summit Value Pass

If you want the real lift ticket deal to a Vail Resorts ski resort, now is the time to buy. These will probably be offered through sometime in November but the price is going to start rising very soon. When Colorado ski pass prices start rising is a mystery we'd all love to know.

The Epic Pass allows unlimited ski and riding (but not skibiking) at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, A-Basin, Heavenly, and Northstar-at-Tahoe. The adult pass (19-64) is currently $649.

The Epic 7 Day Pass (ages 13+) is currently $499 and is good for 7 days at the same ski resorts as the Epic Pass.

The Epic Local Pass is a great value at $499 but do not expect to use it during any holiday period. It has extensive restrictions and is blacked out from useage during Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, President's Weekend, and Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend.

The Adult Summit Value Pass offers unlimited access to Keystone and A-Basin with restricted access to Breckenridge. It is not valid at Breck during any holiday period. The pass is only $409 for adults.

If you are looking for a student ski pass to Vail - keep looking. You won't find one. Vail Resorts does offer Teen and Child Passes.

All the passes are available for purchase online - even first time buyers.

Skibiking is only allowed at Keystone and Arapahoe Basin. Adaptive skibikers can ride with a Vail Resorts issued permit.

I have searched and searched. $499 for the epic pass seems to be the best deal around. Have you come across anything better. My son goes to CU. And is begging me to get the pass now!!!!!
