Another Epic Season is on the Way!
Vail Resorts has done it again. The ski industry leader, with 36 owned or operated resorts worldwide, is blazing the way for skiers and riders with two new innovative programs for the upcoming ski season.

First, the wildly popular multi-resort Epic Pass® will be even easier to access with My Epic App. Your mobile phone is your new ski pass; no more removing gloves and fumbling through jacket pockets. Just click into your skis or snowboard, open your app, and away you go. My Epic App also allows you to use your pass as a resort charge and get real-time grooming reports, weather updates, personalized stats, lift line status, and interactive trail maps to help you navigate the mountain like a pro. If you previously used the Epic Mix App, be sure your notifications are turned on and the transition will be seamless.
Next is the introduction of My Epic Gear, a truly exciting new membership program. A $50 fee unlocks the benefits for the entire season. Members select their favorite gear for the season from 15 brands of the latest ski and snowboard models at each participating resort. You’ll receive expertly tuned equipment and high-quality custom boot-fitting. Members can also request specialized gear to suit changing weather conditions and terrain, subject to availability.

The equipment will be delivered to where you’re staying at the resort or you can arrange for slope-side pick-up and drop-off; no more hauling gear to and from the resort. Just select your favorite equipment and where you’d like it delivered each day. There’s a $50 per day rental charge, considerably less than high-end equipment rentals, not to mention the incredible convenience. The available gear will cover all ability levels from beginner to expert as well as all terrain types from groomers to powder.
