Explaining The Different Passes

  • Epic Local Pass: This pass provides full, unlimited access to over 20 mountains across Colorado, Midwest, Washington and the East Coast.
  • Epic Pass: This pass will include what is mentioned above, but also includes some international locations as well. This years pass seems to include certain runs in Australia.
