Buy your Epic Pass at the lowest price of the year. Prices go up after May 29.

The only thing better than locking in an Epic Pass for the 2023/24 season is locking it in at the lowest price of the year. Skiers and riders have until Memorial Day on May 29 to buy an Epic Pass for the 2023/24 season before prices increase. Epic Pass is currently priced at $909 ($463 for kids 5-12); Epic Local Pass at $676 ($351 for kids 5-12); Epic Military Pass at $159; and Epic Day Pass customizable with three levels of resort access – ski or ride resorts like Vail Mountain from $86 a day.

Skiers and riders interested in purchasing an Epic Pass to take advantage of the lowest price of the year can compare all Epic Pass offerings, including regional passes, on the Epic Pass website. 

Buy a pass now and get two discounted Buddy Tickets for friends and family.

Skiers and riders who purchase an Epic Pass by May 29 will receive two discounted Buddy Tickets. Buddy Tickets offer up to 45% savings on a lift ticket so guests can share days with family and friends at their favorite resorts.
