New for the 2024/25 Winter Season

  • Mobile Pass is coming to Whistler Blackcomb: This season, the new My Epic app offered a Mobile Pass option to guests at Vail Resorts’ 36 U.S-based resorts, and next season, this popular feature is coming to Whistler Blackcomb. With Mobile Pass, guests may store their Pass directly on their phone, put their phone in their pocket, and get scanned, hands free via Bluetooth® Low Energy technology. This eliminates the need to wait in the ticket window line or wait for a Pass to arrive in the mail. It will also help reduce plastic and RFID chip waste. Plastic cards will still be available to guests who cannot or do not want to use their phone as their Pass.
  • Epic Pass plans to provide access to Switzerland’s Crans-Montana Mountain Resort: Vail Resorts plans to provide Pass Holders access to another international resort in the 2024/25 winter season. Skiers and riders will be able to experience Crans-Montana Mountain Resort in Switzerland for the first time on the Epic Pass, subject to the close of Vail Vail Resorts’ acquisition. The resort is two and a half hours away from Vail Resorts’ other owned and operated European resort, SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun, in Central Switzerland. Crans-Montana Mountain Resort spans over 1,400 meters of skiable vertical terrain, and 140 kilometers of trails. 
  • Skip the ticket line with improved Buddy Tickets redemption process: Skiers and riders who lock in an Epic Pass soon will receive benefits on Buddy Tickets and Ski With a Friend Tickets to help friends and family save on lift access. New next season, you and your friends can skip the lift ticket window to redeem those tickets and instead head straight to the slopes. Simply purchase the Buddy or Ski with a Friend ticket(s) on EpicPass.com, then let the My Epic app and Mobile Pass do the rest. Pass Holders must scan their Mobile Pass first in a lift line, which will automatically activate the Mobile Buddy or Ski with a Friend Ticket within the guest’s My Epic app’s Mobile Lift Ticket feature. Scan and go! Direct-to-Lift access will be available across all Vail Resort’s North American resorts for the 2024/25 winter season.
  • Epic Lift Upgrade projects to debut across several resorts: Part of Epic Lift Upgrade, Vail Resorts continues to invest in the mountain experience at resorts close to home and around the world with an estimated total capital plan for 2024 to be more than $214 million. At Whistler Blackcomb, the four-person high speed Jersey Cream lift will be replaced with a new six-person high speed lift. This lift is expected to provide a meaningful increase to uphill capacity and better distribute guests at a central part of the resort. The project follows the recent upgrade of Fitzsimmons Express from a 4-pack to an 8-pack chair, reducing wait times and increasing uphill capacity by more than 70%.
