Get back to the mountains you love with the 2021 Epic Australia Pass, on sale today, offering the best value to skiers and riders looking for access to Perisher, Hotham, Falls Creek and more. Priced at AU$859 for adults, AU$489 for students (up to year 12) and AU$669 for seniors (65+ years), skiers and riders can access their favourite Australian resorts for only AU$49 upfront.
“We are excited to launch the 2021 Epic Australia Pass and look forward to welcoming our guests back to our resorts for the 2021 season,” said Pete Brulisauer, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Vail Resorts Australia. “This past season was challenging, especially with the early end to the season at our Victorian resorts, but we’re looking forward to the bluebird days on our horizon, here in Australia and across North America and Japan.”
The Epic Australia Pass pays for itself in just five days and now comes with Epic Coverage, free for all pass holders and replaces the need to purchase Pass Refund Protection. Epic Coverage provides refunds associated with certain resort closures, including those due to COVID-19, and expands coverage to provide refunds to guests for personal events, including illness, job loss and injury.
2021 Epic Australia Pass access starts with the 2021 Australian snow season and concludes with the 2021/22 snow season in the Northern Hemisphere. In the event that the resorts need to manage capacity to allow for physical distancing, Vail Resorts may manage access through a reservation system that prioritises pass holders.
