linvillegorge Meh, if you look A LOT like the other person, it would work.

A buddy of mine always gets the Loveland pass, but rides a few days a year in Summit using his brother's Epic Pass, but they look A LOT alike.

But, another buddy of mine got busted using someone else's pass. Luckily he was smart enough to carry $50 cash on him that day in case he had to buy off a liftie. Worked like a charm.

snowklinger you cant sell ur epic pass

nobody would be stupid enough to buy it from you.

it could so easily be caught and cancelled.

bassholic If i bought a pass to use epic pass to use 12-26 thru 1/3, would it be easy to resell my pass? Or better yet, would anyone here be interested in that?

I did this year after not getting it last year. I tore my acl last year playing basketball(I play about 4-5 times a week at home) and I didnt get cleared to ride until late march. It's only $20 so it's worth it to me if I get hurt again before the snowboard season starts.

linvillegorge Yep, I've just done Loveland for the past two seasons. This will be the 3rd straight. I'm not much of a park rider, so it works perfect for me. I do wish they'd do a little better job with their park though if they're gonna bother. Shittiest park setup ever. Do it right or don't bother.

snowklinger Interesting. A buddy who has been around the summit county industry for years told me that and he usually knows, but I'm sure theres a whole chicken/egg/slippery slope thing there. Maybe WP started it and Vail perfected it? Who cares season passes for $450 for multiple mountains? Sweet!

I'm just doin the Loveland weekday this year for $260 to afford a trip or 2 to Silverton and beyond!

It looks like they have not increased the prices at all this year from last. Before Vail bought all the mountains and forced prices down, they were over a grand, still are in Canada...If this year is epic they will surely be more next year.

Everyone can only speculate, this is a marketing tactic. You could call/email Vail but I'm sure they would give you a canned response designed to sell you a pass sooner than later.
Vail didn't force the prices down. You can thank Winterpark for that. They started this whole cheap season pass thing in 97 when they offered four unrestricted season passes for $800. Vail was charging the full amount, but at Sniagrab no one was lining up for any of their resorts. VR quickly changed their tune and offered the same deal. Since then, it has morphed into what it is now. So prices started at $200 a pass and are now at around $500 for multiple resorts several years later.
