Vail Offer Bargain 09-10 Season Pass If You Reserve By April 9th This Year (19-Mar-09)

Vail Resort, USA, March 19, 2009 - Vail Resorts are offering their unrestricted Epic Season Pass

Vail Resorts are offering their unrestricted Epic Season Pass for 2009-10 at the same price they sold the current season’s ticket for in last year, $579, so long as you put down a down payment of $49 for this ticket by April 9th.

The Epic Season Pass provides unlimited, unrestricted Skiing at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Heavenly and Arapahoe Basin for the 2009-2010 Season for just a few dollars more than six-day, non-discounted, high season lift ticket for Vail or Beaver Creek, so is well worth considering for anyone thing of spending seven days or more on the slopes outside low season.

The pass costs $279 for children aged 5 to 12, children four and under are free and those aged 13 – 17 pay the adult price.

“We recognize these are challenging times for many of our guests, but in spite of it all, our guests have reminded us of a very important lesson: that skiing (and snowboarding) is a passion and it’s part of who they are and how they connect with their friends and family,” said Rob Katz, chief executive officer for Vail Resorts. “Our guests still want to and need to ski and snowboard this season at our five iconic and top-rated resorts (plus at Arapahoe Basin), which is why it’s so important that we make it easier for our guests to enjoy another ‘Epic’ ski or snowboard season next year by rolling back the prices to the 2008-2009 prices of $579 for adults and $279 for children.”

Katz recommends that guests act now since these low prices are only guaranteed through April 9, 2009.

In total the Pass gives access to more than 17,400 acres of terrain, 128 chairlifts and 722 trails at six resorts from opening day in November until closing day in April, including every holiday in between with no blackout dates.

“The Vail Resorts Epic Season Pass has given our guests the opportunity to ski or ride when they want and how they want,” Katz said. “For many of our guests, the Epic Season Pass offered them a new “luxury” - the luxury to take multiple trips to our world-class resorts this year, as well as the luxury to focus on spending time with their friends and family instead of focusing on the price of each individual trip and ski day.”

Epic Season Pass purchasers will continue to receive exclusive offers and promotions for lodging, dining, ski rentals, equipment, ski school and special events for the 2009-2010 ski and snowboard season as part of the Epic Pass Club. All Vail Resorts season passes will continue to utilize the new, state-of-the-art Radio Frequency Technology for an “easy scan” process that gives skiers and snowboarders the option to keep their pass zipped inside their jacket while getting “scanned” in lift lines.
