Vail Resorts has announced that Eldora Mountain Resort west of Boulder will be added to the ski company’s Epic Pass unrestricted season ski pass next ski season.
The move means Front Range skiers from Denver and Boulder will have a much closer option than the current array of Colorado resorts available for buyers of the $689 adult Epic Pass, which currently offers unlimited access to Keystone, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Vail and Beaver Creek. It will also offer Front Range skiers and snowboarders an alternative to driving I-70 for turns.
Also included on the pass are Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in California and Nevada – all owned by Vail Resorts. A children’s Epic Pass for kids ages 5 to 12 costs $359.
“Adding Eldora to our already robust offering of mountain resorts on the Epic Pass gives Front Range skiers and snowboarders the greatest choice of resort access for the best value in the ski industry,” said Kirsten Lynch, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts.
“Now our guests have several options to ski close to home, at six iconic resorts in Colorado as well as to enjoy a trip further west to our three additional world-class resorts in Lake Tahoe,” she added in a press release.
Also new for next season, Vail Resorts is offering the “Keystone A-Basin Pass,” which features unlimited access to two of the closest mountain resorts to the Front Range for $279 for adults and $199 for children. There are some holiday restrictions.
Vail Resorts offers a slew of other pass products. For more information, go to www.epicpass.com.
Eldora Mountain Resort is just 21 miles west of Boulder.
