Season Pass FAQ

NEW next season! Vail Resorts is investing over $50 million to establish a connection between Park City and Canyons for the 2015/2016 season, creating the largest single ski area in the country with more than 7,300 acres of skiable terrain.

What does the connection between Park City and Canyons mean for me?
Next season, if you purchase an Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass, Epic 7- or 4-Day, Park City Youth, or the Tahoe Local Pass, you will have access to the country’s largest ski resort that includes both Park City and Canyons. The two resorts will now operate as one unified branded experience under the name “Park City”.

Is Canyons Resort going away?
Canyons Resort is not going away. For 2015-2016 it will be a part of Park City.

The Park City EZ Access and other Park City only passes are not available for the 2015/2016 winter season.

Is the Park City (and Canyons) 4 Pack available?
The Park City 4 Pack is not available at this time.

Will night skiing and riding at Park City cost extra in 2015/2016?
No. Night skiing is included for free on all 2015/2016 season passes.

Is Fast Tracks returning for 2015/2016?
No. After carefully considering how to create the best possible guest experience at Park City Mountain Resort, we identified new opportunities to make even better use of our guests’ time on the mountain.

What are the new opportunities replacing Fast Tracks?
The $50 million capital improvement plan in place for next season, including a new gondola and two upgraded chairlifts, is a significant leap forward for the Resort’s guest experience. Also, as Canyons did not offer Fast Tracks and the two resorts are combined for the 2015-16 season, we need to align the experience and offerings the new resort provides.

What's that improvement project you mentioned?
We are set to embark on a $50 million improvement project this summer which includes turning King Con Lift from a quad into a detachable 6-pack and upgrading Motherlode Lift from a fixed-grip triple into a detachable quad. We will also be installing an 8-passenger gondola connecting Park City and Canyons to create a single ski area – the largest in the United States. These upgrades will mean a significant increase in the number of guests we are able to move up the mountain.

Will ski school and/or racers still enjoy expedited lift access?
Yes. All ski & snowboard school participants will continue to enjoy dedicated lift lanes – our ski school offers a range of programs, for destination guests and locals, across a range of price points. Also, race team members will enjoy the same privileges, provided they are accompanied by a coach or instructor.

Can I purchase a Parking Pass for the 2015/2016 season?
Yes, you can purchase a Park City Parking Pass at the Park City Season Pass Office later in the year. It is not currently available. It will not be available online and there will be a limited number sold. Visit the Park City Season Pass Office for more information.

How does summer access work on the Epic Pass?
2015/2016 spring season pass purchasers receive free summer 2015 sightseeing lift access. Specific Park City details coming soon.

What are the benefits to purchasing my pass now verse in November?
For one, pass prices are the Guaranteed Lowest Price in the spring. Additionally, the following benefits apply to all guests who purchase passes prior to 4/12/15:

  1. $49 Payment Option
  2. 6 Buddy Tickets for friends and family (not available with the Epic 4 and 7 Days)
  3. Unlimited Vail and Beaver Creek skiing/riding in April  2016 (Epic Local passes only)

What about my Park City Friends and Family tickets? Do I still get those in the 15/16 season? My food and beverage discounts?
The best discount for friends and family of pass holders is the 6 Buddy Tickets available when purchasing certain passes in the spring. We also offer 6 SWAF (or Ski with a Friend) tickets to most pass holders.

What is a Buddy Ticket? A SWAF Ticket?
Buddy Tickets are only available for spring pass purchasers. These tickets are a set rate per resort throughout the entire season. The pass holder simply visits the ticket window with their guest next season in order to purchase the discount ticket.
The SWAF (Ski with a Friend) Ticket is available during the entire sales season for pass holders. It is a varying discounted ticket available at the lift ticket window during the season with both pass holder and friend present.

If I have a 2014/2015 Park City pass, do I need a new pass card?
No. Your new card issued by Vail Resorts can be used year over year.  If you have an old Park City Mountain Resort Pass you will need to get a new pass at a Park City Season Pass office.

Will the 6 and under Free pass continue to be issued?
The free 6 and under Park City season pass is no longer available. We now offer a 4 and Under free pass valid at all resorts with no blackout dates – Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Park City, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood and Arapahoe Basin. This pass is available starting Labor Day weekend.

I purchased a Park City season pass in February of 2014. Will I be able to do this again this year?
No. Epic season passes are currently available at the Guaranteed Lowest Price with the best benefits through April 12.

What is rollover value?
Rollover credit means a past Pass purchaser is entitled to a pro-rated credit for unused value of an EZ Fast Tracks 10-pack. Credit must be applied towards the purchase of a pass product of equal or greater value by December 2015.

Do I have to use my rollover value on another season pass? Can I just get the money back?
The rollover value is only applicable to a resort season pass product and can only be used for the pass holder who earned the rollover. Value will not be refunded as a gift card or cash. Season passes are not available all season so the rollover credit must be used prior to December 15.

Do I get rollover value for my 14/15 10 EZ Access Pass in the 15/16 season?
Yes, 14/15 10 Day Passes receive rollover credit through December 2015. After that time, the rollover value is no longer available.

Can I use my 14/15 rollover value to purchase a 15/16 season pass even though the 14/15 season is not over?
No. The rollover value for the 14/15 season is available starting June 1 and spring prices and benefits will be honored for rollover guests at that time.

I have more credit in my roll over account than my 15/16 season pass will cost. What can I do with this extra money?
The rollover credit must be used on a season pass product so it is recommended the guest upgrade their pass (perhaps from an Epic 4 Day to a 7 Day) or purchase parking, etc. The rollover credit is non-transferable.
