Vail Resorts owned Park City Mountain, UT yesterday announced operating dates for the 2019-20 ski and snowboard season. Both the Park City Mountain Village and Canyons Village are scheduled to open on Friday, November 22, 2019, and will close for the season on Sunday, April 12, 2020 (and not a day later 😉).
New for next year is a fixed grip quad chairlift, named “Over and Out,” that will transport guests from a location near the bottom of the Tombstone Express Lift and unload near the top of Sunrise Lift on the front side of the mountain. As the name suggests, this lift will provide a quicker, more direct route for skiers and riders to access Canyons Village from the center of the resort.
Also new for the 2019-20 season, Vail Resorts has launched the Epic Day Pass, allowing guests to ski world-class resorts for up to 50 percent off of lift ticket window prices. Starting at as little as $106 for one day of skiing at any of Vail Resorts’ North American resorts, the Epic Day Pass is perfect for those skiers and riders who may not need the unlimited skiing offered by traditional season passes. Guests can also lower their cost per day by adding more days and can lock in the lowest prices by purchasing this spring.
For guests looking to ski more days in a season, the Epic Pass and Epic Local Pass continue to offer the best value and variety for unlimited skiing and riding. Launching at $939 for the 2019-20 winter season, the Epic Pass provides unlimited, unrestricted access to all of Vail Resorts’ owned and operated resorts and additional access to partner resorts around the world. For skiers and riders willing to navigate around a few peak dates, the Epic Local Pass offers incredible value with access to many of the same destinations, starting at only $699. The entire lineup of Epic Pass options is on sale now at epicpass.com.
