The Epic Pass just keeps getting more ridiculous…
The Epic Pass will now include 5 days at Whistler Blackcomb this season (2016/17).
Epic Pass costs $849 (up from the early bird price of $809) and includes:
- Unlimited access to the 13 ski resorts listed below
- 5 days at Whistler Blackcomb
- 17 days of skiing in Switzerland, Austria, and France.
- 6 Days of free skiing between Les 3 Valle, Paradiski, & Tignes-Val d’Isere in France
- 5 Days of free skiing at 4 Vallees, Switzerland
- 3 Days of free skiing at Skirama Dolomiti Adamello Brenta, Italy
- 3 Days of free skiing at Arlberg, Austria
The Epic Pass will include unlimited access to Whistler Blackcomb next season (2017/18) and Vail Resorts CEO has stated that the price of the pass will not go up.
SnowBrains calculates that next year’s early bird price will be $849. $849 just for a season pass at Whistler is a great deal!
Whistler Blackcomb is the largest ski resort in North America at over 8,000 acres of skiable terrain and they were just bought by Vail Resorts this fall.
Whistler is also included in the Mountain Collective Pass in 2016/17, but you only get 2 days at Whistler.
Next year, the Epic Pass will include unlimited days at Whistler.
