A familiar story is coming out of Vail Resorts’ headquarters this week, with the company’s announcement of three new ski areas having joined the Epic Pass family for the 2018/2019 season: Crested Butte in Colorado, Okemo Mountain in Vermont and Mount Sunapee in New Hampshire.

The news comes on the heels of Vail's recent partnership with six Canadian ski resorts and nine resorts in Hakuba Valley, Japan, bringing the Epic Pass up to 64 mountains across 11 states and provinces and eight countries. The addition of Okemo and Mount Sunapee helps strengthen the Epic Pass’ presence in the Northeast while Crested Butte offers pass holders access to some of the most advanced terrain in Colorado.

“Crested Butte is a perfect complement to the unique family of resorts offered on the 2018-19 Epic Pass with its legendary terrain and historic mountain town. Okemo is known as a great family-friendly resort and together with neighboring Mount Sunapee and Stowe Mountain Resort, provides three great options for skiers and snowboarders in the Northeast. We strive to offer guests the greatest value and variety in their ski and snowboard vacations and are thrilled to now be able to offer access to 64 of the most celebrated resorts around the world,” says Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts, in a press release.

Beginning in the 2018/2019 season, Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass and Epic Australia Pass holders get seven days at each of the three resorts with no blackout dates for a total of 21 days. Epic 7-Day pass holders can use any or all seven of their total days and Epic 4-Day pass holders can use any or all four of their total days with no blackout dates at the three resorts. Epic, Epic Local, Epic Australia, Epic 7-Day and Epic 4-Day pass holders will receive 50 percent off lift tickets after their respective days have been redeemed. Crested Butte Peak Pass Plus and Peak Pass holders; Okemo Ultimate, Classic and Gold Pass holders; and Mount Sunapee Full Ride and Skiing Is For Life Pass holders will receive 50 percent off lift tickets at all Vail Resorts owned mountain resorts.
