A.Basin is on the EPIC pass + Colorado Pass announced April 2
Hi from Vail Resorts HQ. Just wanted to let everyone know that A-Basin IS included on the Epic Season Pass. We just needed to get their commitment and confirmation before announcing it publicly. Also, Colorado and Summit Pass programs will be announced April 2, 2008. Check out www.epicpass.com and/or www.coloradopass.com for more details....
who the efffff cares if abay is included ... the pass is way to much money .... and the traffic is insane ... i would rather go to monarch and drive half the time home as it does to get home from vail in peak season ..... monach = 3 hours vail = 6 or more hours to drive home..... think about it ... and not to mention all the gapers at vail ... im sorry i do NOT like getting a nice line taken by some effn gaper
oh and one more thing ... why drive up I-70 and pay the high prices for gas and now a proposed toll ... noooooo thank you
i will not be a lemming, following everyone to vail, being some idiot on the road and letting vail bend me over for parking and food .... i have much better things to do with my money then hand it over to them!
i agree with you punkmouse. if i didn't consistently have a free place to stay up in summit county, i'd never deal with the bullshit involved with the colorado pass. when i do drive up for the day, i have to be on the road by 6 am, and on my way home by 1-2 pm in order to beat the traffic both ways. eldora sucks and their pass is too expensive, but shit i did enjoy 40 minutes door to door from boulder and no traffic or lift lines.
man i would love a free place to stay but i am so sick of the tourists that think they rule the town ... i love it when i am at vail, i hit women on the ass with my snowboard if they have a fur on and think they own the place .... muhahahahhahaha
the tourists are definitely a huge downer. i find it's not so bad if you just avoid the peak times like christmas/nye, presidents' day, etc. the last time i was at vail it was a friday morning. i show up thinking it's going to be all uncrowded and i found the opposite to be true. doesn't anyone fucking work anymore?
That was actually why Vail resorts sold the Epic Pass. Great for locals, but also a way to lock people down who come in from out of state for extended trips. If you are doing a week long vacation the price of the Epic Pass is less than paying by the day.
