AltaSnowbird

Alta and Snowbird together provide 4,700 acres and 540″of “The Greatest Snow on Earth” along with Utah’s longest ski and snowboard season.

This destination features a broad range of terrain with stunning alpine scenery and excellent snow conditions. Skiers find this unique setting the perfect place to create unforgettable memories with family and friends.

This destination includes Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk. In all, it offers more than 5,500 acres of snow-covered terrain and endless dining and nightlife opportunities when off the slopes.

Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole is famous for its rock-strewn chutes and plummeting glades. Forbes named it the #1 ski destination in the US for its ‚ÄúPure Awesomeness Factor.”

Mammoth

Mammoth claims the highest summit of any California destination at 11,053 feet, which makes for deeper, higher quality, and breathtaking views skiers love. Mammoth features 3,500 skiable acres and boasts an annual snowfall of 400 inches per year and plenty of sunshine.

This is one of California’s only real big mountain skiing/riding experiences.

Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows combined forces in November 2011 under a common ownership. Here skiers and riders enjoy access 6,000 skiable acres, 43 lifts and more than 270 trails.

Whistler Blackcomb

Whistler Blackcomb enjoys a consistent rank as the #1 year-round destination. This skiing destination features 16 alpine bowls, 3 glaciers, 200 trails, and 8,171 acres of skiable terrain. Options for beginners to advanced skiers are incredible.

Cost of Epic Pass

Another advantage to the Epic Pass is that there are no blackout dates, plus they offer up to 25% off of lodging. The downside is they are only available while supplies last.

The adult pass costs $379 (USD) and for children 12 and under the pass is $239. For those who want to include insurance with their pass, the prices go up to $402 and $254 respectively.

Insurance covers injuries or pregnancy that prevent you from skiing for the rest of the season, or if someone in your family experiences an illness or injury. It covers job-related issues such as if you or a traveling companion loses their job (if they’ve worked there for a year or longer), or if you are forced to transfer and move 100 miles or more away. It also covers an unforeseen closure due to a natural disaster.
