Until three years ago a season pass at Vail was $1800.00. Vail then introduced the discounted Epic Pass that allows anyone on the planet with an internet connection or telephone to buy it. In the spring of 2011 the Colorado Pass was changed to the Epic Local's Pass and allows anyone to buy it too.
It spite of the super fantastic prices on the Epic Pass, Epic Local's Pass, and Summit Value Pass, people are still looking for additional discounts on these passes. To put it bluntly - put down the crack pipe and just pay the price. Vail isn't discounting them any further. In fact, the prices on the passes were raised last week by $50 - 60.
Epic Pass discounts that don't exist for the 2011-12 ski season:
Epic Pass student discount - nope, doesn't exist. Check out the Child Epic Pass, Teen Epic Pass, or School of Shred Pass for 5th & 6th Graders.
Epic Pass college student discount - Update: Now available for 2013-14 - Epic Local College Pass. Must be purchased by 9/2/2013 You'll have to check out some of the other Colorado resorts for this such as the Rocky Mountain College Pass Plus or the 2 for 1 Wells Fargo Rocky Mountain Super Pass deal for Colorado and Wyoming college students.
Epic Pass military discount - nope, doesn't exist. Military can get the Liberty Pass valid for Keystone and A-Basin at a discount. Military discounts are available for daily lift tickets at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, A-Basin, and Keystone. Lift ticket prices fluctuate throughout the ski season and so the price for military is going to change too. Holidays are going to be the most expensive. Active duty military can get discount season passes at Loveland Ski Area and the Patriot Pass for Copper Mountain, and Winter Park Resort. A few other ski joints have military season passes.
Epic Local's Pass discount - nope, doesn't exist right now. Quit looking and go buy your pass before the price goes up more or they stop selling them at a discount. The clock is ticking. If you want a discount on this pass in the future, look for a deal when the weather is warm - such as April - August.
Summit Value Pass discount - nope, it's already discounted. Check out the Child or Teen pass. Go ahead and buy it while it's still for sale. The prices are only rising right now. The 2011-12 ski season has already started in Colorado.
Epic Pass Promo Code - nope, doesn't exist. Expect all Epic Pass sales to disappear in November or early December at the latest. The best place to buy an Epic Pass is directly from Vail Resorts at Snow.com.
Wells Fargo Epic Pass discount - nope, wrong pass. Wells Fargo only has a deal with the Rocky Mountain Super Pass (Copper Mountain, Winter Park Resort, Steamboat).Want a free Epic Pass or Epic Local's Pass? Book lodging at select Rock Resorts properties before their current deal ends in mid-November.
