VAIL, Colo — With Vail Resorts’ Sept. 17 pass purchasing deadline looming, those considering the Epic Pass for this season are weighing their options.
The Epic Pass is Vail Resorts’ only consumer product which offers guests unlimited access at Vail Mountain, with no blackout dates.
Unlimited access during the 2020-21 season might be a little more tricky, however, as guests will be required to reserve the days they want to attend in advance.
If days do fill and access to Vail is restricted this season, holidays and powder days are expected to be the days which fill first. Holidays are more likely to fill in advance while powder days are expected to fill on a more last-minute basis.
Nervousness about the potential for restricted access through Vail’s recently announced reservations system tops the list of concerns for many.
Without detailing specific capacity numbers, Vail Resorts CEO Rob Katz tackled a few questions related to the program in a video published Monday.
