The price of the Epic Pass has been going up in recent years. Increased demand and inflation currently have the unlimited Epic Pass priced at $909. The Epic Local Pass, which has blackouts, costs $676. For those who want to save some money, PeakRankings released a thorough video breakdown of what lower-priced Epic Pass products you should consider if you don’t want to shell out over $900 for the Epic Pass.
To summarize, you should get an Epic Pass if you are planning to ski more than seven days at Vail’s S-Tier destinations in the Rockies, which consist of Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Park City, mountains owned by the Resorts of the Candian Rockies, Telluride, Vail, and Whistler Blackcomb.
If you ski primarily in less popular ski resorts in the Rockies, the Midwest, or the Northeast, they’re cheaper regional passes that should be considered, like the Epic Local Pass. Some ski resorts, like Stevens Pass, Kirkwood, and various Midwest ski resorts, offer individual season passes. Day passes purchased before the season at the B-tier ski resorts, like Mount Sunapee and Attitash in New Hampshire, can be bought for below $50. There are also discounted season passes for military members/veterans, adaptive skiers, and college students.
