Epic Pass holders will receive seven days of skiing or snowboarding with no restrictions at both resorts.

Epic Local Pass holders will receive two days at each resort with minimal restrictions. Epic 7-Day pass holders can use any or all seven of their total days, with no blackouts, while Epic 4-Day pass holders can use any or all four of their total days of skiing and snowboarding with no restrictions at both resorts.

Unfortunately their inclusion does not extend to Epic Australia Pass holders, but if you are buying regular Epic Pass products as above you can enjoy these excellent resorts.

Snow Basin is known as a great family-friendly destination, conveniently located near Salt Lake City. It gives you the option of staying in nearby Ogden, a smaller city north of Salt Lake City.

Ogden is very relaxed to stay in, and has an amazing car museum with some incredible 1920s – 1930s prohibition era luxury vehicles in perfect condition.

Sun Valley is consistently ranked one of the top ski resorts in North America. Being on the trans-continental railroad it was an early favourite, the original destination resort founded in 1936 and popular with the stars back in the glory days of Hollywood.

Being too far from major cities to attract a lot of day skier traffic it’s an uncrowded destination.

But access to Sun Valley is simple with flights to Friedman Memorial Airport  (SUN). The airport is located 14 miles from the resort and is easily accessed from six major cities: San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA), Los Angeles (LAX), Salt Lake City (SLC), Denver (DEN), and Chicago (ORD). All Sun Valley Resort guests receive complimentary roundtrip airport transportation.

Epic Pass holders will receive seven days of skiing or snowboarding with no restrictions at both Sun Valley and Snowbasin and 50 percent off one-day window lift ticket prices after their respective days have been redeemed, beginning with the 2019-20 winter season.

The Epic Pass offers world-class access including unlimited, unrestricted skiing and riding at Vail, Beaver Creek, Whistler Blackcomb, Breckenridge and limited day access to several resort partners, including Telluride, Fernie, Kicking Horse, and more.
