What sucks about it? Seems like a lot of attractive options on thereEasy. Epic. It’s cheaper and Ikon access sucks. I can go on for days about how Ikon sucks but I’ll spare you. Just ski at Vail.
So, the question is, Epic or Ikon?
Literally everything. Just stick with Epic.What sucks about it? Seems like a lot of attractive options on there
Yea the Ski Cooper pass is amazing. I will look into that one when we get out there for winters in the future even with the fact that my Granby Ranch pass has 3 comp days at Cooper.neither. they both suck. overpriced, overhyped and overcrowded…
if you’re looking for something to add variety along with the Indy pass, take a look at the ski cooper pass. they have a shit load of pass partners. they give passholders three days at each partner resort.

last year the season pass was $329 if you bought it in July. i would expect a similar price next July.
I feel like having places like Smuggs and MRG would make that pass interesting. The way it is now Platty is the only one that would make it worthwhile in the east.cooper partners are interesting out west but get a big snooze from me in the east
Crested Butte, Kirkwood and I'll argue heavenly all have pretty rad terrain if that's your thing. The other Colorado resorts are good with me but I sorta agree ikon has them smoked in the west.is it just me or outside of whistler and kicking horse, vails western offerings are kinda meh.
With base it's definitely one of my personal faves in that state. Even cruiser days are nice there, it has a different feel probably due to the impossible drive but the landscape is stunning.yeah forgot about crested butte.
NEP prices out for the flash sale (yup, that's back too this year). Prices only valid thru 3/14:
Telluride too, but Ikon does have the better resorts overall.yeah forgot about crested butte.
This could be an unpopular opinion, but IMO, the price should have gone up more than it did.Ikon Pass details are out. No surprise, prices are up more than your $10 Covid credit.
