Vail Pass & Buddy Tickets?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if "Buddy Tickets" are included in the new EPIC Pass?

I can't find this info anywhere.

Vail's Rocky Mountain pass, this year, provided 10 buddy tickets, which allowed visting friends to ski for about 1/2 price.

If the EPIC pass doesn't include this key feature, it won't work for us.

Also, does anyone know if the Colorado Pass will retain the buddy tickets for 08/09?

Here is a link that shows the 3 different passes for next year and what they offer:

Thanks!

The short answer seems to be: if you are renewing an old pass or upgrading to Epic and do it in the Spring- you get the 4 Buddies@ $50 per. Everyone seems to get the 6 "varaible" rate ski w/ a friend tickets.

Yes, that seems right.

10 tickets for buddies: 4 @ $50 per and 6 at variable.

For us, that's the clincher.

But, the clock's ticking. The passes have to be either bought or reserved (@ $49 each), by May 4th.

I think you only get 6 "Ski-with-a-friend" discounted tickets (not ten), variable price according to date - prob same as SKE card prices. If you buy before May 4th you get an additional four $50 tickets.

We just went for the "EPIC" passes.

For the extra $140, it's worth avoiding all limitations.

It'll be nice to not have to check the pass sticker for "black-out" dates during peak holiday times, and not count days at Vail/BC.

The pre-May 4th and Spring Specials, are worth grabbing before they expire.

Yes, since we are never in CO on the holidays and have never made it to 10 days at Vail/BC (we have 8 this year), the only value to the Epic pass is that for $140 we get unlimited skiing at Heavenly. We are now in the process of trying to decide whether we want to go up to Lake Tahoe a couple of times, as a break from Mammoth, next winter.

It's unlimited at Heavenly, too? That's Great!
