The partnership will enhance the value of Vail Resorts' Epic Season Pass, which provides three days of free access to the Verbier ski resort, including Les 4 Vallees, the largest ski area in Switzerland, for new and renewing 2012-2013 Epic Season Pass holders.
Kirsten Lynch, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Vail Resorts, said guests with passes already receive unlimited, unrestricted skiing and riding at eight mountain resorts including Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood, as well as Arapahoe Basin.
In addition, Epic Pass holders will now have the opportunity to extend their winter to Europe and experience four additional premier mountain resorts including the Verbier resort, as well as Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon, Switzerland.
