Colorado pass = no more?

I was poking around the Vail resorts promotional material (I purchased a summit pass last season), only to find that there is no longer a "Colorado Pass" listed.

The entire idea behind the "Colorado Pass" was that it was restricted to Colorado residents (they enforced this rule by requiring customers to pick the pass up in person before the ski season started).

Anyways, it looks like it has been renamed to the "Epic 7"? Anyone have the skinny on the reason for the change? Are Coloradoans not buying the pass in droves anymore? What gives?

Pretty sure it's just off the market until the Fall. You can still renew it at this time, so that looks like the deal. Pretty sure it'll be offered up in the Fall again, as usual.

Which CO pass are you talking about the unlimited breck, keystone, a bay, with 10 days at vail/ b.c. or the unlimited at all vail owned resorts with a bay?

I was talking about the Colorado pass with unlimited Breck/Key/A-Basin with 5 days @ Vail/Beaver. Price last season (09-10) was $460.

The new marketing material lists the Epic-7 pass at that same price point. Unlimited Brek/Key/A-Basin with 7 days @ Vail/Beaver. Unlike the CO pass, the Epic-7 doesn't have restricted dates at Vail/Beaver and they don't require you to pick it up in person before the season starts.

The Epic pass is the one with unlimited everything (Breck/Key/A-Basin/Vail/Beav/Heavenly).

$460? Very jealous! Such a cheap pass!

Yeah there's a few changes now.

There's the Summit Pass unlimited Abay, Keystone, Breck for 409, then there's the CO pass unlimited for breck, keystone, a bay and 10 days at vail/b.c. with restrictions for 449 but that deal has ended till the fall hits it should return at 499, and of course there's the epic fully unlimited at all Vail owned resorts which you can drop 49 bucks down on then pay the rest off in Sept. for 599. The epic 7 is just the worst option ever like 7 lift tickets for the price of a pass fuck that noise.

What did you dislike so much about Summitt Co this past year? Is it that the snow never really dumped out there?

I am going to go with traffic, crowds, complete shit show circus that is Summit County. Snow conditions vary from year to year. Last year just happened to be a crappy one. If anything, next season will most likely be solid one for Summit.
