Broomfield, Colo. - Earlier this morning ski industry giant, Vail Resorts announced a "long-term" partnership with Telluride Ski & Golf, stating that they will be adding Telluride to Vail's Epic Pass family. Seven full days of skiing will be available for Epic Pass holders for the 2018 - 2019 season with no black out dates. The seven days at Telluride will only be available on the full Epic Pass, Epic 4 Day and Epic 7 Day Passes.

Telluride will join over 46 other resorts in the Epic Pass family and will be available for purchase in March of 2018 for next season. If Epic Passes (with Telluride) are purchased before April 18, 2018, six discounted buddy tickets will be included on your account. After this season, Telluride will no longer be included on the Mountain Collective Pass. All current and future Telluride Mountain season pass holders will receiver half-off lift tickets at locations owned and operated by Vail Resorts.

For years Vail Resorts has had the mega ski pass market almost to itself, however with the recent unveiling of the Ikon Pass from Alterra Mountain Co. we may likely see more and more resorts added to each pass as time goes on as Ikon and Epic go head to head.
