Epic Pass Expands to Include Three Valleys
Already widely regarded as the biggest and best ski pass in the world, the Epic Pass has expanded for the coming season to include 5 days skiing in the Three Valleys. This is in addition to 5 days in Verbier, 5 in St Anton and unlimited skiing in several of the States' most prestigious destinations.
With such an extensive choice of ski areas in both Europe and North America, the price of the Epic Pass is an almost unbelievable $689, which converts to around £450. When you take into account a weekly Three Valleys pass costs €260 (£220), the Epic Pass lives up to its name in terms of value as well as the variety of skiing it offers.
Going on multiple ski trips might be stretching the budget for most people, and the idea of a week's skiing in Verbier followed in the same season by a trip to Vail is probably too time consuming even for those who can afford it.
The Epic Pass is aimed primarily at the US market but as more and more European resorts join the scheme, its relevance in Europe will continue to increase.
