I think the Canadian and WA skiers will get offered an Epic local pass like the one at Tahoe for $529.
Only blackouts are peak holidays. You also get 5 days at other Vail resorts. Sounds better than an Edge Card to me if you're doing more than 6 days at W/B.
No senior rate? Doesn't really surprise me. Even so the regular adult price is pretty good but the biggest negative for me is that I much prefer the resorts on the MCP and Max Pass.
