Are there residency requirements for the Epic Local passes? I am planning a spring trip to Tahoe with occasional business trips to Denver this year and the Tahoe Local pass is very attractive.
It may be useful to go through the exercise I just did. You can purchase tickets online or on Vail's 800 number, which I did while up at Park City last year. The numbers on the web site just now didn't make complete sense until I called and learned that >7 days out there is a 25% discount, while <7 days out there is a 15% discount. Even buying a single day ticket before 5PM the day before made great sense last year. So, I priced the advance purchase for a 7 day of 10 pass at $623 vs the Epic Local pass for $619, basically a wash. Obviously, if you plan to ski a Vail Assoc. area(s) for more than 7 days, a pass makes the most sense. However, in my situation, with a week's trip to Park City only 90% definite, it makes more sense for me to wait to purchase until February. YMMV.
No residency requirements as far as I know. How many trips to Denver? If you will be there enough to log well over five ski days then it may pay to get the Epic local pass oriented towards CO mtns, but also with some Tahoe coverage.
