Vale Resorts and Epic Pass do not stand behind their product. Their partner, insurance provider, American Claims Management, has an F Rating by the Better Business Bureau, unfortunately for many valid reasons. So many valid claims are being denied this winter. And they design a system where you are not able to talk to your adjuster. Please assume the insurance that comes for free with the passes is not valid and assume there's not one valid reason you will get a refund. Though other Ski Resorts not part of the Epic Pass, will fairly and properly offer refunds with valid claims.

Epic pass advertises that if you buy a season pass and then for reasons of health, loosing your job, etc. you need a refund; no problem! Well, not true. I filed a claim for both health issues and employment online and got back an acknowledgment letter along with a confirmation code. I submitted the required documents and then NOTHING! When I call they send me to a phone number that does not accept messages. All my email requests are ignored. The refund is a joke and the process is a racket. Buyer be-where.

EPIC is killing their own future. We bought three EPIC passes for 2021 ski season in November 2020, They made it sound like they would be flexible and customer friendly. But due to COVID we had to cancel a trip to Tahoe in early January. Given the dire virus situation we decided to bail on going to CA or UT this winter. We're realistically prohibited from taking day trips to VT. We contacted EPIC about getting a refund or a credit for 2022. Their customer friendly attitude was a front to get our money. This now say that we cancelled for our convenience!!! They will evaluate what to do at the end of the season. Absolutely dishonest and horrible way to deal with customers. They are going to lose a lot of customers with their behavior. I'm sure they are also going to be looking at class action lawsuits.

First off, I want to make it clear that I live in New England and this review is specifically for the EPIC ski pass sold by Vail Co. Vail now owns Okemo, Stowe and Mount Snow in Vermont, Attitash, Sunapee, Crotched and Wildcat in New Hampshire and Hunter in New York. This is in addition to a huge portfolio of ski areas out west and in Canada, making them a textbook monopoly in the industry. Some years ago, Les Otten was forced to sell off some of the resorts he had acquired in the northeast when the courts decided that he had too much accumulated property, but somehow Vail has managed to amass this enormous portfolio with seemingly no objections. Yet. While Vail invested a huge amount of money making Stowe the “Vail of the east”, there have been few noticeable improvements in other eastern resorts thus far. Clearly the company has deep pockets, but it appears they only spend their improvement money where they feel they can maximize their return. Some of these eastern areas would benefit from some large scale improvement in the lift and snowmaking departments, and admittedly the challenges presented by COVID-19 have made the immediate future hazy. Time will tell if Vail winds up being a good thing ultimately, or if they’ll grab our cash for a few seasons and divest later, having added a few more decimal places to their worth. The price for the midweek epic passes we bought is decent. If I remember correctly, they were $449.00 each, which if you ski more than 4 times a season can potentially be a great deal. The pass offers discounts on food, rentals and lodging, but those discounts aren’t great, and information regarding details are fuzzy at best on their website. Pass holders will have to do their homework to figure out how to best utilize those perks. Our passes were loaded with a limited number of “buddy” and “ski with a friend” tickets, but there is no page on the website listing what those tickets will cost. Instead there is a misleading promise of “up to 45% off” the buddy tickets, or “up to 35% off” on ski with a friend tickets. After waiting an eternity to chat with someone online regarding prices, I was told I’d need to reserve tickets to a specific resort on a specific date to get prices. I did this with a buddy ticket to Okemo to check pricing and found a savings of about $25, which was far less than 45%. Perhaps you’d do better with a multi day ticket, but again, something smelled funny about the savings claim. There have been tons of complaints from people regarding customer service and I’d be inclined to believe them given my experience so far. There are lofty promises in our paperwork claiming “epic coverage” protection in the event of “job loss”, “certain resort closures (e.g. COVID-19)”, “injury and more”, but few details on how to claim that protection. From what I’m reading here, it’s easier said than done. Having said all that, the pass is great for skiers and riders who ski with some regularity, and have little use for the other so called amenities. My wife and I ski once or twice a week every winter, so it works for us. I feel for the people who feel duped by this megacorp that seems to have made it very difficult to collect on their promises. We like the diversity of terrain near us and hope that ultimately we’ll see some large scale improvements on some of the more dated ski areas we frequent. Where customer service is concerned, we have low expectations. This pass is not for everyone, so do your homework. Caveat emptor!

Bought the NE Value Pass so I could go to Vermont several times this winter, and their Epic Coverage for COVID and other risks sounded awesome. Now PA and VT governors requiring 14 day quarantines or COVID tests on either end of any travel to/from their states makes my several weekends in VT impossible. Tried to get passes refunded and came up empty, also missed skiing over Christmas and New Year's while they deliberated my case. EPIC PASS was an EPIC Fail, never buy one again as long as I live.
