Some of the earliest promotional programs have already expired. Back in May, you could put a $49 down payment toward a discount EPIC pass with the remaining coming due soon as the season is about to begin. Likewise, those who bought daily lift tickets at Park City Mountain Resort in the spring can put these receipts toward a season pass this year. Thus, many people have already purchased their season passes, and you’ll still be able to purchase season passes that deliver unlimited skiing in Park City well into the ski season.
But many of the promotional rates are going to expire in October, so if you haven’t bought your season pass, now is definitely the time. We’re all hoping for a great year of snow, but you can’t wait for the weekly weather forecast and expect to get a decent price on lift tickets. Now is the time to commit to how much skiing you want to do this season.
Deer Valley Season Passes
We wanted to start with Deer Valley because there’s a new early deadline date for 2018-19 discount season passes. You have to buy tickets by October 15th this year! By far, the biggest difference comes in the Adult Ticket price which jumps between $300-$400 per person depending on how many adults are in your family. There’s between a $100-$200 jump for most of the other season passes. One notable exception? Military servicemembers can buy their season pass for $1,235 at any time. You can find the entire roster of season passes with both sets of prices (for now) here.
Ikon Pass Discount
Owned by Alterra Mountain Company, the Ikon Pass is complimentary with any Adult Deer Valley Season Pass. However, skiers who buy an EPIC Pass for Park City may be interested in buying an Ikon Pass which would allow you to visit Deer Valley a few times a year in addition to scheduling one or more trips to dozens of other destinations that are part of the Ikon Pass resort collective. You can get a $50 discount on the Ikon Pass until October 10th, 2018.
Park City Mountain and Epic Pass
Early-bird pricing for EPIC Passes expires on October 7th. Their website simply says that prices will go up. In our experience, this has meant a $50 bump in prices. If you’re looking to travel this year and take advantage of Vail Ski Resorts around the country, you’ll likely be interested in the full EPIC Pass which is currently on sale for $929 per adult and $429 per child (5-12 years). The EPIC Local Pass currently costs $689 for adults 19 and over, $559 for teenagers, and $369 for children (5-12). You can find all EPIC Pass prices and pass details here.
