A recent investigative piece by Denver7 shows that despite a battle with cancer, Vail Resorts is planning to charge Colorado resident, Michael Cookson the full amount for an Epic Pass he won’t be able to use this season due to chemotherapy treatments.
Cookson committed to buying a season pass earlier this year but was later diagnosed with prostate cancer in June. Responding via a prepared statement, Vail’s director of brand communications said that the Arvada resident will be charged the full amount ($899) since he did not buy the $25 ‘pass insurance’ they offer.
Cookson recommends others buy the insurance but called the actions taken by Vail Resorts as “kind of petty and greedy.”
