Vail Resorts pass now includes Swiss resort

Vail Resorts, Inc. has a partnership with Swiss ski resort destination Verbier that will enhance the value of Vail Resorts’ Epic Season Pass, providing three days of free access to the Verbier ski resort — including Les 4 Vallées, the largest ski area in Switzerland — for new and renewing 2012-2013 Epic Season Pass holders. In addition to unlimited, unrestricted skiing and riding at eight mountain resorts in the United States, Epic Pass holders can now extend their winter to Europe and experience four additional mountain resorts, including Verbier, as well as Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon, Switzerland. The “Four Valleys”ski area has breathtaking views of the Rhone Valley and the famous Matterhorn, and extends to the Valais and Bernese Alps, culminating in the largest ski area in Switzerland. Vail Resorts Epic Season Pass holders already receive unlimited, unrestricted access to Vail Resorts’ seven resorts — Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood, as well as Arapahoe Basin, and now are being offered three free days of skiing at the Verbier ski resort, including Les 4 Vallee. Culminating at the top of the Mont-Fort Glacier (10,925 feet), Verbier and the entire Les 4 Vallées ski area offers skiers and snowboarders more than 250 miles of trails and 89 lifts. Now, current and new Vail Resorts Epic Pass holders can access all of that terrain for US$679, as well as unlimited, unrestricted skiing at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood and Arapahoe Basin.
