New for the 2020/21 season, your Vail Resorts Epic Pass takes you even further.
Denver families can take a road trip to explore one of Utah’s best-kept secrets with Snowbasin and the birthplace of North American destination skiing in Sun Valley.
Snowbasin Resort is a perennial top ten for SKI magazine in categories like dining, service, lifts and grooming. Here’s how that translates: Snowbasin takes care of everything it can control, and Mother Nature does the rest. Snowbasin Resort is under an hour from Salt Lake City International Airport, but is also about 30 minutes from the historic and vibrant Ogden metropolitan area. This is a city with farm-to-table dining, great performing arts and museums, as well as a fervent love for outdoor recreation. It’s stunning to realize Ogden’s backyard includes Snowbasin’s 3,000 vertical feet and 3,000 skiable acres.
Ranked the #1 Ski Resort by Ski Mag, Sun Valley is the place to be. They have it all – Bald Mountain’s vertical lines, Dollar Mountain’s family-oriented terrain, and limitless backcountry access. Bald Mountain’s 3,400 vertical feet of fall line terrain is complemented by Dollar Mountain’s family-oriented terrain park and limitless backcountry access that has earned the area the moniker “the Alps of America.” While the mountain is epic, so is the backcountry. Sun Valley is hailed as “Nordic Town USA.” This is some of the best and definitely most immaculately groomed Nordic ski terrain in the US.
The Epic Pass includes 7 days at each, Epic Local 2 days, and a 4-Day or more Epic Day Pass can be used at either resort.
