Daily Schedule:  Here's our tentative schedule for the week:

  • Monday - Heavenly
  • Tuesday - Kirkwood
  • Wednesday - Heavenly (or possible off-day)
  • Thursday - Northstar
  • Friday - Heavenly

Lift Tickets:  Lift tickets are not included in the trip package, as Vail Resorts is no longer offering competitively priced group lift tickets.  Epic Passes, which must be individually purchased (not through the club), provide the best value.

Epic Passes:  Participants are encouraged to purchase an Epic Pass product of some type early-on The following options would cover your skiing for the trip:

  • A "full" Epic Pass ($783)
  • Military Epic Passes – Active/Retired ($135); Veteran ($447)
  • Epic Day Passes – ($392 for 5 days; $456 for 6 days)
  • Epic Local Passes ($583)
  • Tahoe Local Pass ($495)
  • Tahoe Value Pass ($423)

Prices shown are as of early May 2021 and are for non-holiday dates.  The cost typically increases at the start of the summer, and then again around Labor Day, and pass sales (except the Day Passes) are likely to end in November.  You may purchase Epic Passes directly from Vail Resorts, but they are also available through our tour operator:  Sportours will afford a rebate on your trip if you buy your Epic Pass through them.  Sportours offers all except the military passes, which must be purchased directly from Vail Resorts.

No Reservation System:  Last winter Vail Resorts required skiers to reserve their ski days online.  They provided this update on 3/19/21:

We designed the [reservation] system to help safely manage on-mountain capacity during this pandemic. While we do not know exactly how COVID-19 will impact our industry next winter, we are not planning to have a reservation system next season. For anyone worried that the absence of a reservation system will lead to longer lift lines, we have extensive learnings from this season around lift loading efficiencies and are implementing new strategies to materially reduce wait times.
