A beautiful bluebird day at Keystone resort in the Colorado mountains yesterday confirmed that we still have some great spring skiing and riding to look forward to in March and April!  It’s scary to think that springtime also means we’re nearing the end of one ski/snowboard season and beginning to look forward to the next!

As of March 10, spring skiiers and snowboarders can benefit from Vail Resorts’ Turn in Your Ticket program, which allows you to apply the cost of a spring skiing day lift ticket towards the price of next winter’s (2016-16) Epic season pass. To take advantage of the program, just bring your day ticket to a season pass office at any of the Vail Resorts‘ owned mountains and let the staff know you’d like to apply the cost of your day’s lift ticket towards a winter 15-16 season pass.

As of this week, all snow sports enthusiasts can also begin planning for the 2015-2016 winter season as Vail Resorts announced that Epic Passes are now on sale for next winter.  Skiers and snowboarders can choose to put just $49 down by Sunday, April 12, to lock in the lowest guaranteed pass price for next season, with the balance due in September.  The Epic Pass pays for itself in less than five days of skiing and offers a 35 percent savings compared to lift ticket purchases at the lift ticket window. For guests planning on just one ski vacation, the Epic 4-Day offers four unrestricted days of skiing or snowboarding, valid all season long. At $389 for adults, the Epic 4-Day pays for itself in just over two days with a 35 percent savings from the lift ticket window.

“The Epic Pass continues to offer the best deal in the ski industry with access to legendary resorts across the country and some of the best skiing and riding in the world,” said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts. “This is the best time to lock in the lowest price for yourself, friends and family, and experience the benefits of owning a season pass for next ski season. The prices will only go up, but we’ll continue to offer unparalleled guest offerings at all of our resorts.”
