With ski season upon us and reservations required at many resorts, multi-resort passes like the Epic Pass are a great way to ensure you get your ski days in. With the addition of multiple resorts to the Epic Pass family in both North America and the Southern Hemisphere during the offseason, including the 17 newly acquired Peak Resorts ski areas, the 2020/2021 ski season promises to be the best yet for pass holders. Itinerant skiers and riders can use the Epic Pass to access multiple states, countries and even continents while accumulating unlimited days at their local resorts between trips.

Numerous pass options allow for a tailored mountain experience with everything you need and nothing you don't. Choosing which season pass best suits your ski and ride needs has never been easier. Here’s our shopping guide to sort out what Epic Pass will work best for you.
