Live it up this solid snow season

Hannah Edensor

A whopping 30cm of snow has fallen overnight across the Perisher Ski Resort and this coming Monday, August 31, marks the deadline for the lowest price on the Epic Australia Pass.

The Epic Australia Pass replaces Perisher’s popular Freedom Pass and offers guests unmatched access to unrestricted skiing and boarding at Perisher for the 2016 ski season, plus access for the 2016-17 ski season to nine world-class ski resorts in the U.S.

Available for AU$749 for adults, AU$429 for students and AU$499 for seniors, the pass pays for itself in just 6 days.

Pass holders gain access to over 35,000 acres, at Perisher; Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado; Park City in Utah; Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in the Lake Tahoe region of California and Nevada.

“The Epic Australia Pass offers unparalleled access to the best skiing and boarding in Australia and the U.S.,” Vail Resorts’ chief marketing officer Kirsten Lynch said.

For those looking to visit the Best of the U.S. during the coming 2015-2016 northern ski season, Vail Resorts’ Epic Pass allows guests to ski as much as they want, whenever they want, at 11 resorts in the U.S., as well as Perisher during the 2016 ski season. The lowest guaranteed price of the Epic Pass is US$769, only through Monday, September 7 2015.
