New for the 2024/25 Winter Season
  • Epic Pass plans to provide access to Switzerland's Crans-Montana Mountain Resort: Vail Resorts plans to provide Pass Holders access to another international resort in the 2024/25 winter season. Skiers and riders will be able to experience Crans-Montana Mountain Resort in Switzerland for the first time on the Epic Pass, subject to the close of Vail Resorts' acquisition. The resort is two and a half hours away from Vail Resorts' other owned and operated European resort, SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun, in Central Switzerland. Crans-Montana Mountain Resort spans over 4,593 feet of skiable vertical terrain, and approximately 87 miles of trails.
  • Mobile Pass is coming to Whistler Blackcomb: This season, the new My Epic app offered a Mobile Pass option to guests at Vail Resorts' 36 U.S-based resorts, and next season, this popular feature is coming to Whistler Blackcomb. With Mobile Pass guests may store their Pass directly on their phone, put their phone in their pocket, and get scanned, hands free via Bluetooth® Low Energy technology. This eliminates the need to wait in the ticket window line or wait for a Pass to arrive in the mail. It will also help reduce plastic and RFID chip waste. Plastic cards will still be available to guests who cannot or do not want to use their phone as their Pass.
  • Skip the ticket window with improved Buddy Tickets redemption process: Skiers and riders who lock in an Epic Pass soon will receive 10 Buddy Tickets and six Ski With A Friend Tickets to help friends and family save on lift access. New next season, you and your friends can skip the lift ticket window to redeem those tickets and instead head straight to the slopes. Simply purchase the Buddy or Ski with a Friend Ticket(s) on, then let the My Epic app and Mobile Pass do the rest. Pass Holders must scan their Pass first in a lift line, which will activate the Mobile Buddy or Ski with a Friend Ticket within the guest's My Epic app's Mobile Lift Ticket feature. Scan and go! Direct-to-Lift access will be available across all Vail Resort's North American resorts for the 2024/25 winter season.
  • Epic Lift Upgrade projects to debut across several resorts: Part of Epic Lift Upgrade, Vail Resorts continues to invest in the mountain experience at resorts close to home and around the world with an estimated total capital plan for 2024 to be more than $214 million. Mountain resort projects planned to launch ahead of, or during, the 2024/25 winter season include Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia, Hunter Mountain in New York, Afton Alps in Minnesota, Perisher in Australia and Andermatt-Sedrun in Switzerland. At Whistler Blackcomb, the four-person high speed Jersey Cream lift will be replaced with a new six-person high speed lift. At Hunter Mountain, the four-person fixed-grip Broadway lift will be replaced by a new six-person high speed lift, relocating the existing Broadway lift to replace the two-person fixed-grip E lift. At Afton Alps, the company plans to install a new 10-lane tubing experience and the Alpine Building will be renovated to a 200-seat restaurant. In Australia, the existing fixed-grip 2-person Mt Perisher Double lift and fixed-grip 3-person Mt Perisher Triple lift will be upgraded to a new 6-person, high-speed chairlift ("the Mt Perisher 6") for the 2025 ski and ride season in Australia. These investments remain subject to regulatory approvals and date changes.
