Rollback valid for three weeks; Copper offers great late-season deals for passholders from other areas
By Summit Voice
SUMMIT COUNTY — The tulips may not be sprouting yet in Colorado, but the spring ski deals are, as Vail Resorts announced a $20 rollback on season pass prices, valid for three weeks (April 15 – May 8), and Copper revived the Swinger Pass, good for $39 walk-up tickets if you have a season pass from any other ski area.
The Vail deal is valid for the Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass, Epic 7-Day, Summit Value Pass and Tahoe Value Pass. Skiers and riders who have already purchased a 2011-2012 season pass will automatically receive this new promotional price, including a refund, if applicable.
The Epic Pass, good for skiing at all of Vail’s Colorado and California resorts, plus Arapahoe Basin, was first advertised for $649 this spring, while the Epic Local Pass, (Summit County, plus restricted skiing in Eagle County and California, was selling for $409.
“We wanted to carry the excitement from this season into the 2011-2012 ski and snowboard season by offering our guests a limited-time, special discount on our most popular season pass products, said Heidi Kercher-Pratt, vice president and chief marketing officer for Vail Resorts.
All passes are available for purchase at www.epicpass.com and the new prices, valid from April 15 through May 8, are listed below. A $49 down payment now guarantees the lowest price with the remaining balance due in mid-September.
Vail Resorts also offers pass insurance. All of its pass products are non-refundable. However, pass insurance covers pass holders in the event of unexpected events including sickness, injuries and job loss. Pass insurance is $20 for adults and $10 for children (ages 5-12). Coverage applies for all season passes and the Epic 7-Day valid for the 2011-2012 ski and snowboard season.
For Copper Mountain loyalists, a Copper-only season pass is on sale for $369, while the Rocky Mountain Superpass (unrestricted skiing at Copper and Winter Park) is $409. Visit www.coppercolorado.com for details.
