It seems odd to be talking about ski lift passes in June when I’m chilling in the air conditioning. However, now is the time to shop for ski passes for the 2023-2024 season. With an Epic Pass, you can gain entry into 30+ ski resorts across America, Canada, Australia, Japan, and Europe. Love skiing in Vail? Check. Want to show off your skills on the slopes of Switzerland? No problem.

The Epic Pass makes it easy to plan your ski trip because you can choose individual preferences, winter or summer activities, and buy according to experience level. Plain and simple, you won’t have an epic fail of a ski trip (like that humor?) by choosing the right pass for your situation. Think of it as a passport to year-round skiing adventures in some pretty cool places. Plus, that’s all while saving money and no blackout dates (for some passes).

Keep in mind that most Epic Passes are for skiers 5 years and up. You could save up to 65% compared to buying lift tickets in season. Since there’s a range of pass options, locations, and savings tips, keep reading to learn all about the Epic Passes. Text DEALS or HACKS to 57299 for smart shopping tips and the hottest deals.


Epic Pass is a pre-purchased, multi-resort pass that even includes some international locations.

The Epic Pass is a pre-purchased, multi-resort pass that provides access to numerous ski resorts across the United States, Canada, and select international locations. It’s a non transferable physical card that gets scanned at the resort you visit. Moreover, holders get to choose the number of days they want to visit, ranging from a single day to the entire season. Additionally, the 2023-2024 pass gives you summer lift access.


There are three Epic Passes — Day, Local, and Full Access.

If you buy ski lift tickets in January or February, you’re going to pay a higher price because this activity is in season. That’s why now is the time to plan and take advantage of bulk discounts. The Epic Pass is available in various tiers. These include the Epic Day Pass, Epic Local Pass, and the full Epic Pass. Let’s break them down:

Epic Day Pass

This is the lowest level of ski passes and the most affordable. However, if you’re an occasional skier who wants to choose the number of days you hit the slopes, the Epic Day Pass is a good option. The pass cost depends on the resort, date, and number of days. For instance, a 4-day Epic Day Pass for an adult skiing off-season and limited to 22 resorts could pay $179 ($45 per day) for one pass. Whereas, if you choose all resorts including peak times, the same 4-day pass is $113 per day for a total of $452. You can even build your own 7-day pass.

If money is tight, there’s a ‘buy now and pay later’ option.

There’s nothing worse than trying to flex that you can afford a ski trip only to discover that you can’t. But, with the Epic FlexPay option, you can apply for a $0 down, 0% APR loan through Uplift.

To apply for the loan, the minimum purchase is $49 and you’re given 3, 6, 9, or 12 months to spread out the payments. However, not every state participates. To give you an example, if you’re approved for the loan, monthly payments could be as low as $32 for a 4-day Epic Day Pass.
