Vail Resorts Inc., Sun Valley Resort and Snowbasin Resort jointly announced today that both resorts will join the Epic Pass in a multi-year alliance beginning with 2019-20 winter season.
Epic Pass holders will receive seven days of skiing or snowboarding with no restrictions at both resorts. Epic Local Pass holders will receive two days at each resort with minimal restrictions. Epic 7-Day pass holders can use any or all seven of their total days, with no blackouts, while Epic 4-Day pass holders can use any or all four of their total days of skiing and snowboarding with no restrictions at both resorts.
“Sun Valley is a four-season renowned mountain resort and provides visitors from around the world with diverse mountain experiences and world-class dining and shopping,” said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts. “Together with nearby Park City Mountain Resort, Snowbasin has an incredibly rich winter sports history and this expanded access provides two great options for Epic Pass holders in Utah.”
“Snowbasin and Sun Valley are crown jewels of our family-owned businesses and we are always looking for new ways to provide outstanding service to our guests,” said Carol Holding, whose husband, Earl, bought Sun Valley in 1977. “As we remain committed to investing in and operating our properties for many years to come, this multi-year alliance with the Epic Pass will bring value to our pass holders and introduce more guests to our unique traditions.”
“Sun Valley Resort is excited to participate in the Epic Pass starting next season,” stated Tim Silva, Sun Valley Resort’s Vice President and General Manager. “Sun Valley is one of the premier ski destinations in the country, and we welcome Epic Pass holders to our resort. This will offer a significant benefit to Epic Pass holders, Sun Valley and Snowbasin season pass holders, and our resort communities.”
Sun Valley Resort is located in the mountains of Idaho, while Snowbasin Resort, located in Utah, is less than 40 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport and only 50 minutes from Park City.
