Epic Pass Price Increase Has Buyers on Edge

Skiers who haven’t yet purchased new season passes at Crested Butte Mountain Resort could find themselves paying more than they expected.  The issue led CBMR officials to update their Frequently Asked Questions page last week.

Vail Resorts, whose purchase of CBMR is pending, says they will transfer all CBMR season passes to their Epic Pass package. But they decline to say whether they’ll charge a fee for the transfer.

Both companies note that unlimited access to CBMR on the Epic Pass depends on whether the resort’s sale to Vail is approved. They estimate that will happen in September.

There is a Epic Local Pass that offers unlimited skiing at Crested Butte Mountain Resort that is less than CBMR’s Peak Pass.
