New Deadlines for Breckenridge & Park City
To coordinate with the new Epic Day Pass deadline, we have adjusted the registration deadline to Nov. 6 for both Park City and Breckenridge.

Reminder: Important Details About the 2020-21 Ski Season Vail Resorts has implemented major changes as to how the upcoming season will operate:

Reservations will be required to access all Vail Resort mountains. This includes the destinations where the Vagabonds will ski in 2021. Vail Resorts indicates that for the vast majority of days, they expect to be able to accommodate everyone.

Passholders will have first access to the reservation system. Passes include the Epic Pass, the Epic Local Pass and the Epic Day Pass.

You are required to make your own reservations online from Nov. 6-Dec. 7. Each passholder has seven Priority Reservations Days that are replenished as you use them.

Group lift tickets are no longer available. Instead, you may purchase Epic Day Passes from one to seven days total. There is no senior rate. However, in most cases, these rates are better than the group rate lift ticket.

o Epic 1-day pass - $109 o Epic 5-day pass - $490

o Epic 2-day pass - $214

o Epic 6-day pass - $571 o Epic 3-day pass - $312

o Epic 7-day pass - $647

o Epic 4-day pass - $404

If you wish to purchase the Epic Day Pass, you must do so yourself by Nov. 6 at EpicPass.com.
(Please note: The Epic Day Pass is non-transferable and non-refundable.)

• Daily lift tickets go on sale Dec. 8.
