Ski & Ride the Best of Austria, Switzerland on the Vail Resorts Epic Pass
 
2013-2014 Epic Pass holders receive five free days at Arlberg, Austria, including St. Anton, Lech, Zuers, St. Christoph & Stuben
 
Ski For Just Over Five Days and the Epic Pass Pays For Itself

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   

 

(and don't forget Verbier).

 

Now if only they added a huge resort that was within 5 hours drive of Los Angeles, with an airport served by Frontier Airlines,  and had a really really long season.

... and there's a thread on a gathering (in Feb 2014 I think) called  "Itinary Ideas" that'll be worth following.

PS: Freinds tell me the Euro isn't favoured by cab drivers or anyone else.

How convenient that St. Anton was picked.  Makes it more attractive to our US members to attend the Euro gathering.

The gathermeister should have a word to VR about film travelogues, guides, meet n greet/ski with US elite athletes in Austria, meet n ski with Ski Club of Gt Britain (the Brits love tahoe), perks, promos, demo gear, film and editing awesome trips. They contributed to a tv doco on the freeride tour of Kirkwood, so why not ask about turn this into a sponsored epicski gathering?

That would be assuming that there is actually a VR passholder that attends this gathering.. I think all the sort-of-committeds are European so far.

Does egg comes before chicken? Or chicken before egg?

Intruiging.  I think this just extended our New Years trip...

Or North Americans based in Europe (plus Chraya in the Middle East). wink.gif

 

At the moment, there are only two from the DC area in the roll call thread. But, this deal might bring in more. A five-day pass for the Arlberg area will be €205 next season, so the five-day deal on the Epicpass is worth about $270 at the current exchange rate.

Me too. I think we've actually got quite a few members in Europe who are originally from North America.

I just got a notice that Les 3 Vallees is included in the Epic Pass.

Does this mean we will be seeing a lot more Americans over here?

I don't think it will cause a huge increase. The biggest additional cost with a trip from North America is the travel, which is also a big cost in terms of time (overnight flight plus resort transfers).

I think we'll see a small increase from people travelling out of curiosity or crossing off items from their bucket lists, but probably no more than that.
