Vail Resorts Announces 2019/2020 EPIC PASS Holder Credits & Free Coverage for 2020/ 2021 Season

Vail Epic Pass 2020/2021 Season

Given the unexpected and disappointing ending to the 2019 - 2020 ski season, Vail Resorts has announced updates to its season pass program for the 2020/2021 North American ski season, which includes providing credits to 2019/2020 season pass holders whose season was cut short by concerns over COVID-19. Season pass holders from last season are being offered credits, of up to 80%, to put towards a pass for next season. Pass holders will received a personalized email with the credit information by May 13th 2020.  Given that most people will need extra time to make any winter plans, the credit will be available through Monday September 7th, 2020.  


Season pass holders will receive a minimum credit of 20% of the price of their 2019/20 pass, which can be applied to a 2020/21 season pass of equal or greater value. For pass holders who waited until Spring to use their pass and used their pass less than five days, or didn’t use it at all, credit amounts are higher and - up to 80% of what was paid for the pass.

Epic Pass 2019/2020 Credits



Vail is providing a credit up to 80% of the 2019/20 pass price based on the number of unused days, to apply toward a pass of equal or greater value for next season. If you have already purchased a pass for next season or if you renew your pass prior to receiving your promotion code, they will retroactively provide the credit value back to you.  Click to read more.


Vail Resorts has launched an "Epic Coverage" plan to address the uncertainty pass holders are feeling about the 2020/2021 ski season.  

  • Epic Coverage is free for all pass holders and completely replaces the need to purchase pass insurance, which can cost up to $60 for other passes.
  • Epic Coverage provides for a refund if you have an eligible injury, job loss, or experience other personal events that prevent you from using your pass.
  • Epic Coverage also provides a refund for certain resort closures, including for events like COVID-19, giving you a refund for any portion of the season that is lost.

 Savings All Season Long

In March, we announced our new Epic Mountain Rewards, providing pass holders 20% off all mountain food & beverage, owned and operated lodging, group ski and ride lessons, equipment rentals and more at our North American resorts. No sign up. No points tracking. No blackout days. Just savings. Learn more about Epic Mountain Rewards here.

Spring Deadlines Extended to Labor Day 

We do not want to rush your decision. We are eliminating our traditional spring purchase deadlines, giving you through Labor Day (Sept. 7, 2020) to use your credit and to lock in 10 Buddy Tickets for next season. If uncertainty continues, we may reassess that deadline again as it gets closer.

Lowest Up-Front Cost 

If you want to lock in your pass, we want to provide you the lowest up-front cost during this challenging time. Right now the deposit for your pass for next season is only $49, significantly less than the deposit many other passes require. This offer will extend for the next few months.
