Albertans just got another option when it comes to their annual ski/snowboard pass.
As of the 2018/2019 season, the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies – Fernie, Kicking Horse, Kimberley, and Nakiska – will become part of the Epic Pass alliance that spans across the world.
The Epic Pass is a snowboard pass (be it season, seven day, or four day) that allows riders the ability to shred at any participating mountain resorts.
If the hardest thing about winter is deciding what hill to commit to, this pass may be up your alley. With Whistler Blackcomb in Whistler, Beaver Creek in Colorado, Afton Alps in Minnesota, Hakuba Valley in Japan, Skirama Dolomiti in Italy, and many more mountains to choose from, you’ll never get bored of the same ol’ routes.
Participating ski hills span eight countries and 61 resorts, though even if you can only make it to your local hills, it’s still worth it in the long run.
Those who purchase four or seven day passes will receive half off any future single day tickets at Epic Pass resorts, meaning that you can finally try out all of Alberta’s ski hills without shelling out a fortune.
The Epic Passes range from $439 for the four-day pass to $899 for the season pass, with child and teen discounts available.
And who knows, you may even find yourself in Japan with a hankering for some fresh snow!
