BROOMFIELD, Colo. — March 14, 2018 — Vail Resorts, Inc. (NYSE: MTN) announced today that Okemo Mountain Resort in Vermont, Mount Sunapee Resort in New Hampshire, and Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado have joined the industry-leading Epic Pass in a long-term alliance beginning with the 2018-2019 winter season, bringing the total number of Epic Pass mountain resorts for skiers and snowboarders to 64 in eight countries. Pass holders who purchase Epic, Epic Local and Epic Australia will receive seven days of skiing and snowboarding with no blackout dates at each of the three resorts. Epic 7-Day pass holders can use any, or all seven, of their total days, and Epic 4-Day pass holders can use any, or all four, of their total days of skiing and snowboarding with no blackout dates at the three resorts. 

“Okemo is known as a great family-friendly resort, and together with neighboring Mount Sunapee and Stowe Mountain Resort, provides three great options for skiers and snowboarders in the Northeast.” said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts. “Crested Butte, with its legendary terrain and historic mountain town, is a perfect complement to the unique family of resorts offered on the 2018-2019 Epic Pass. We strive to offer guests the greatest value and variety in their ski and snowboard vacations and are thrilled to now be able to offer access to 64 of the most celebrated resorts around the world,” 

“We are proud to join the Epic Pass in a long-term season pass alliance with Okemo, Mount Sunapee and Crested Butte. Our focus on guest service, reinvestment in our resorts and outstanding ski experiences both in New England and the Rocky Mountains aligns well with the Epic Pass and Vail’s remarkable line-up of resorts. We expect this partnership will be a significant benefit to our guests and skiers and riders around the world for years to come,” said Tim Mueller, president of Triple Peaks, LLC, owner of Crested Butte, Okemo and Mount Sunapee mountain resorts.

Rising above the village of Ludlow, in south-central Vermont approximately three hours from Boston and four hours from New York City, Okemo Mountain Resort is a four-season playground that developed a reputation for quality and superior guest service as a winter retreat for skiers and snowboarders. Originally a small, community-run ski hill, Okemo underwent a significant transformation in 1982 when Tim and Diane Mueller purchased the ski area. Okemo consistently receives accolades and wins awards for snow quality, grooming, terrain parks, family programs, slopeside lodging, resort dining and its friendly employees. Mount Sunapee is a four-season ski area located in southern New Hampshire. A 90-minute drive from Boston, the resort offers skiing and snowboarding in the winter and ziplines, mountain biking, aerial challenge courses and more in the summer. Crested Butte is located in southwest Colorado, within the Gunnison National Forest and the Elk Mountain Range and is known for its great skiing and snowboarding and historic mountain town. The resort’s 1,547 acres of skiable terrain offers something for every skiing ability; over half the mountain is geared to intermediate and beginner skiers with a centrally located base area. For more adventurous skiers and snowboarders, Crested Butte offers some of the best lift-served extreme terrain in North America. The Town of Crested Butte boasts one of Colorado's largest National Historic Districts and is commonly considered by many to be “Colorado’s Last Great Ski Town” with its variety of boutiques, restaurants and après-ski hot spots.
