Ski/Snowboard Passes

Vail Resorts recently announced that they will be limiting the number of single day tickets in order to preserve the guest experience (shorter wait times in lines and more space on the slopes). If you would like to ski while attending our conference, we recommend getting an Epic Day pass (up to 7 days). This is the least expensive option. Please keep in mind that these have sold out fast in the past so we would recommend purchasing these early on if you plan on skiing. 

You can purchase your ski tickets through Epic by clicking here. Prices go up September 4th. 

*This is a tentative schedule
