We will miss a couple of competitions in early December but fuck it.

Park city is 6.5 hours away. Tahoe is like 14. I can hit those all in a 6 day round trip from here.

Michigan is a shit drive of like 20 hours.

Breck, keystone, abasin, BC.... Easy.

Eldora is the one I'm really looking forward to.

In 3 years I'll more than pay for the trip and have many more years of epic passes ahead of me for 3 people. Plus I get the fun of the trip and experience of the euro riding.

Should be fun.
If you really end up doing this you gotta keep us updated.

If it were me, I'd be hella nervous about spending $5K on a very rushed tour of 26 mountains. With all the thousands upon thousands of people getting the Epic Pass there has to be more than 10 people going to try to hit every opening day, so at that point it's anyones game.

I think I may wait and see where the race is at in mid December. By that point I should have all the US mtns covered. We have trips to Tahoe and park city planned already in early dec. if no one has done it yet, I'm buying tickets to the closest/cheapest airport in Europe for 3.

Watch the maggots on TGR. As far as the online world goes they will be the biggest competition. I'll say, to pull this off, you are probably not going to get great conditions most of the time. The experience though will be awesome.

Good luck with trying to get by on $50/day for food in Europe - that is not going to be enjoyable...
Plus, is 3 x 10 x $50 not more than $1,000?

I have a feeling that most of the folks that might do this are the sort that "need" a free pass the least... so definitely make sure you can win if you give it a go!

I don't think this is true... The people that are eligible already have epic passes, and have the means to pull this off. I suspect most of the winners are going to be people with a fair amount of disposable income already...
