Lodging And Lift Sales, Plus Openings At Vail Resorts

For a limited time, travellers who book their winter trips to any of the ski mountains in the Vail Resorts portfolio in advance will receive discounted rates on lodging.

Until Sept. 6, the Winter Getaway Sale by Vail Resorts will feature the best winter lodging rates across its mountain destinations in North America. Holders of an Epic Pass all access pass receive an additional 20% off lodging rates with Epic Mountain Rewards.

Also, skiers and riders have until Labour Day (Sept. 5) to lock in their Epic Pass purchase before prices increase. Pass products, including regional passes and day passes, are available now on the Epic Pass website.

Non-pass lift tickets will be limited in number every day, across every resort, during the 2022/23 season in order to preserve the guest experience at each mountain. Availability of lift tickets will be visible on resort websites in the coming weeks. If tickets are sold out online, guests will not be able to purchase them at ticket windows.

Passes, including Epic day passes and pass holder benefit tickets, will not be limited. There is also no impact on guests who enroll in ski and ride school lessons that include lift access, or to employee and dependent pass access.

Vail recently announced the opening dates for the winter season of each of its mountain resorts across its portfolio.

The season will kick off at Keystone Resort in October, opening as soon as weather and conditions permit, along with some help from its energy-efficient snowmaking system. Another 16 of the company’s North American resorts are set to open for skiing and riding in November. For example,

Breckenridge (CO), Vail (CO) will open on Nov. 11; Heavenly (CA), Northstar (CA) and Park City (UT) will open on Nov. 18; and Whistler Blackcomb in B.C. will open Nov. 24.

The season will continue into the spring, with Kirkwood Resort planning to stay open until the end of April, and Whistler Blackcomb and Breckenridge planning to operate well into May.

Vail Resorts will not require face coverings, vaccines or dining reservations this coming season across its resorts. The company will continue to monitor the changing dynamics of the pandemic, but at this time does not plan to have any of these measures in place. Employees will continue to complete daily health screenings and resorts will still apply enhanced cleaning practices.
