Epic Local Pass Questions

Hey guys, I've got some questions about the Epic Local Pass.

1) When do they usually go on sale for the next season? I saw the website says something about mid March, not no details.

2) Do they ever allow end of current season discounts/ visits if they're purchased early enough?

3) School of Shred for 5th and 6th graders: is it 4 times at each place, or 4 times total for the season? So, 4 Breck, 4 Vail....

Thanks guys, now that I've been here for a season, I'm thinking of taking advantage of that for next year.

Do they usually give a discount for people renewing, or is this probably the regular price?

Just wondering how much I can expect the price to go up since I probably won't buy until the summer or early fall.

If you're not renewing it's usually more expensive. I think by about 50 dollars or so. It looks like they're only selling renewals right now. The sooner you get it the cheaper it will be. I think It usually goes up 20 or 30 dollars before they stop selling them in late November.

Right now they are selling new passes for $509 as well, so I was just wondering after April 15th if I can expect it to go up. Poor college student at the moment, and I won't be working until summer, so that's when I'll be able to afford it

They usually go up in 10 dollar increments at various times ( Idk when but 4/15 would be a good guess) until they stop selling them.

They went up $50 through last summer but stopped selling in early October. I renewed my epic passes today. We use them all summer too for hiking and biking.....

I've not seen any current year discounts for next year passes.....

I'm pretty sure they extended season pass sales to late November for the 11/12 season. I had friends from out of state here on vacation around Thanksgiving and they were considering purchasing the passes.

You dont have to pay it all at once though. I've bought the epic pass now for 3 years in a row and its $49 down payment and then they charge the rest in September to my credit card.
