Prices Reduced on Epic Season Pass
72 Attachment(s)
I never thought It would happen but Vail resorts actually reduced prices on something!! :thumbsup: I just got an email, the epic pass is now $629 and the epic local pass is $479. I'm glad I didn't go with my first instinct and buy the pass as soon as it became available. Sometimes it pays to wait.

I paid 550 for an unlimited epic last season seems like a rip off to me.

Well, you expect the prices to keep climbing every year. Nothing new there. It just is an easier pill to swallow than the prices they initially came out with for the 11/12 season

It is a rip off, its like $400 or close too for a limited pass, and blacked out saturdatys at northstar, they need a northstar only pass or something, and thats why im going else where next season for my pass.

They will refund you the $20 if you got in earlier at the higher price

Do you guys remember when it was $800 for a season pass at Keystone, or Breck, or Copper, or Winterpark? That's right, $800 for just one of those spots. I sure do. Though pass prices have been rising, you all still have it very good compared to mid 90's pricing.

I am STOKED about the Epic Season Pass. When compared w/ the rates for my local ski hill, it is as cheap as chips! In for $49 deposit! Cannot wait to hit up VAIL and surrounding resorts!

Anyone here fairly familiar w/ rates for accommodation in Vail and nearby, e.g. East Vail and Sandstone? I keep hearing from various sources that Vail, similar to Aspen is over-priced... Then again, I am remaining optimistic! Also, I'm there for @ least 2 months solid!

Cannot believe I'm pre-preparing in advance... Hooked I tell you!

Vail is expensive, no doubt. Not quite on par with Aspen, but it's in the same ball park. Still, plenty of ski bums are doing it in Vail. I think a lot of peeps stay in Edwards. For the cheapest area, Minturn is the spot to look.

For all the glitz and expense there, Vail has it's charm. Vail Village is one of the nicest wannabe European ode to the retail gods center of any ski area. All joking aside, it's nice. Easy to walk around, lot's of restaurants and bars. Good stuff.

My pass to Brighton was 850 this past year. Oh the joys of Utah resorts not partnering up and getting into a bidding war.

Mammoth is having a limited sale on 2011/12 MVP passes (no black out dates) for $659. keeping in mind that lift ticket prices are at $92. as long as you go about 7 times you make your money back. plus they are letting members use them from may 1st til end of the season (around 4th of july).
definitely worth it.
