For an additional $130, the Epic Local Pass includes unrestricted access to Mt Snow, Hunter, and Okemo. And also goes from 10 days at Stowe to unrestricted except holidays.
This should be the main goal of EVERY ski area.
Vail / Epic have been unresponsive for either by phone or email... My brother and I put down the $50 in March to lock in the early rate however we both realized we have no use for the pass this year. Having no way to contact Epic I cancelled my credit card so they can't automatically charge me for the balance... Not sure if anyone else has experienced this problem
You are .issuing part of Loon's point. They are not trying to win the value proposition, they are pricing to limit pass sales. Anyone who really wants a Loon pass has an option, but they would probably be fine with selling very few of theseB&B is the clear winner there.
Well except Loon is one of the very busiest and densely packed ski areas in the East with a four person gondola as the main lift out of the base area.
If there's any mountain in the East where I think reservations would be needed and fill quickly, it's Loon.

Wouldn't help by itself. If they flipped the old Kanc to Seven Bros, that may have helped. Still, increasing out of base seats still bottlenecks as there are only 2 upper mountain lifts on hill, a double and a HSQ. Loon cannot move folks around and spread them out very easily. The bed base has far outstripped the mountain's carrying capacity.I bet that they're wishing that there was some sort of feasible way (both financially as well as installation logistically with a certain completion time frame) that the new Kanc 8 pack could of been good to go for this coming season to help get folks out of their, even with reduced seating on it, it would likely make a difference at some of the lines likely to be there this season...

I just received an email from Epic saying I have $119 credit toward any eligible pass. The strange part is, I never had one of their passes, so I don't know why I was given the credit.
After they posted their plan for this year, I decided told wait till next year to get an Epic pass, now I may just get it this year as I had planned.
