Eldora Included with Vail Resorts’ Epic Pass Next Season: Great news for Boulder Families!


If you have ever felt torn between the ease of Eldora and the big mountains of Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Breckenridge & A-Basin this new announcement is fantastic! So now when you purchase a Vail Resorts Epic Pass [not a small investment!] you can either face the traffic, rent a place in the mountains, or decide on a short commute day and head up to Eldora whenever you please. Eldora offers some fun terrain–especially for kids–and it is so close.

The truth is my family has not skied Eldora for years because of getting Vail passes. We have not wanted to purchase extra tickets so even when friends invite our kids to Eldora we say no. But there are certainly days we would love to leave I-70 behind and stay local. Now we can! But you have to purchase the Epic Pass to get the benefit.

For more information on passes go to the EpicPass website.

Below is the Daily Camera article announcing the collaboration on 3/12/2013:

Starting next season, Eldora Mountain Resort in Boulder County will be included in the Epic Pass, Broomfield-based Vail Resorts announced today.

The Epic Pass now includes unlimited access to nine resorts in three states with the addition of Eldora, the resort which sits about 45 minutes from Boulder.

Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood and now Eldora are included in the pass, which currently costs $689 for adults and $359 for children.

“We are thrilled to offer Eldora Mountain Resort as part of next season’s Epic Pass for Colorado skiers and snowboarders,” said Kirsten Lynch, Vail Resorts’ executive vice president and chief marketing officer, in a news release.
