New for Epic Pass: Vail Resorts is providing credits to 2019/20 season pass holders, based on the number of days used, to apply toward the purchase of a 2020/21 season pass of equal or greater value. You can book your 2020/21 season pass with Ski.com regardless of where you purchased last year. Epic Coverage is included FREE for all pass holders, and provides refunds associated with certain personal events, including illness, job loss, and injury. It also expands coverage to protect you from certain resort closures, such as any due to COVID-19.

New for Ikon Pass: - Adventure Assurance: Any 20/21 Ikon Pass purchased can be deferred to the 2021/22 season. If your selected Ikon Pass destination closes due to an eligible COVID-19 event between December 10, 2020 and April 11, 2021, you will receive a proportional credit towards the purchase of any 21/22 Ikon Pass.
