Epic Passholders Will Be Required To Make Reservations

To Have Epic Days On Snow, You’ll Need Epic Planning Skills

Earlier this week, Vail Resorts announced that its Epic Passholders will have to make reservations to ski and snowboard at its mountains this winter season. This is one the many new policies in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“For your safety, we will be managing how many people are on our mountains this season and implementing a pass holder reservation system. Reservations will be required to access our mountains.”

The pioneers of the mega-pass believe that for the majority of days, all 34 of its North American mountains will be able to accommodate everyone who wants to ski or ride. Vail Resorts explains that this reservation system will give its guests peace of mind, knowing they’ll have the space needed to feel safe and physically distance.
