Vail Tosses Us Northeastern Folks Our Own Epic Pass

As the popularity of the mega passes increases, so too do the choices that come along with any or all of them. Now available for the 2020/2021 season, the Epic Northeast Value and Midweeks Passes.

For those looking to get in on the Epic Pass, but aren't looking to venture any further east than Ohio, the Northeast Value pass, priced at $599, will let passholders visit 16 different resorts across the Northeast with varying access or restrictions.

Unlimited Unrestricted Access Mountains -

  • Wildcat Mountain, NH
  • Attitash Mountain Resort, NH
  • Mount Sunapee, NH
  • Crotched Mountain, NH
  • Jack Frost, PA
  • Big Boulder, PA
  • Whitetail Resort, PA
  • Liberty Mountain Resort, PA
  • Roundtop Mountain Resort, PA
  • Boston Mills, OH
  • Brandywine, OH
  • Alpine Valley, OH
  • Mad River Mountain, OH
  • Mt. Brighton, MI
The Northeast Value Pass will allow unlimited days and unrestricted access to all of the mountains above, which means one can ride as much as they want, any day they want, including the holidays.

Limited Access Mountains - 

  • Okemo, VT
  • Mount Snow, VT
  • Hunter Mountain, NY
If one is looking to use this pass in the Catskills or Southern Vermont, they will have nearly unlimited access. For these three mountains, one will have to plan their ski or snowboard adventure around the Thanksgiving, Christmas/NewYear, MLK Weekend, and President's Day holidays.

There is also a chance to get 10 days at Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont, again, with holiday blackouts.

This can all be yours for $599 for adults, $449 for seniors and teens, and $419 for college students, which is available right now at the Northeast Value Pass website. There is also the option to secure your pass now for just $49 down with the balance being collected in early September. 

If you're looking to cut costs a little bit more and you're a midweek skier, this new Epic Pass has a version for you as well. The Northeast Midweek Pass offers all of the same benefits as the Northeast Value Pass with just a couple of differences. The most obvious being that this pass is only valid Monday through Friday. Also, a pass holder will only have 5 days available at Stowe. This pass will run you $339 for seniors and $449 for other adults.

These new additions of the Epic Pass lineup also coincide with the announcement of the new Epic Mountain Rewards program, which gives pass holders a discount of 20 percent off food and beverage, lodging, group ski and ride school lessons, equipment rentals and more at the Company’s North American owned and operated resorts.

“Last year, we changed the definition of a season pass by launching the Epic Day Pass and giving all skiers and riders the same value and flexibility – even if they only plan to ski or ride one day. Today, we are transforming the breadth of value offered with a pass by providing our pass holders truly epic discounts on their mountain experience,” said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts.

Epic Mountain Rewards is available for everyone who purchases an Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass, Epic Day Pass, Military Epic Pass and most of the Company’s other pass products – regardless of whether guests plan to ski one day or every day of the season. Those passes are on sale now and the Epic Mountain Rewards discounts go into effect for the 2020-21 season.

All the information you need to compare and purchase an Epic Pass for next season is available at the Epic Pass website, which is linked just below.
