The season pass hype for next winter has started. Vail announced its new Epic Season Pass. For $579 the pass offers unrestricted, unlimited access to Breck, Keystone, Vail, Beaver Creek and Heavenly in California.
The up side: no more 10 restricted days only at Vail like the Colorado Pass.
The downside: no A Basin.
The bait and switch: Instead you get Heavenly, which is 1,000 miles away. I'm not sure I'd drive past Breck, Copper, Vail, Beaver Creek, Aspen and the mountains of Utah to ski in Lake Tahoe. We'll see how it sells.
