PARK CITY, Utah. — There is an EpicPass insurance coverage deadline tonight, Dec. 7 at 11:59 p.m. for the 2020-21 ski season, so listen up if you want in on potential refunds if the resorts shut down due to the pandemic, or you encounter illness, injury, job loss, etc.
The abrupt ending to the 2019-20 ski season still lingered when passes for this season went on sale last spring, but Vail Resorts, like many others in the ski industry, announced they were working on plans not only for safety and social distancing on the mountain, but also for pass insurance coverage in the event of resort closure or another qualifying circumstance. Vail’s #EpicPromise this year was to ensure pass holders peace of mind when purchasing an EpicPass by offering their “Epic Coverage” program for free.
As a passholder, Epic Coverage was automatically applied to your account, but if you booked a few (or all seven) of your “Priority Reservation Days” for the upcoming season, these priority days automatically became the only days covered by Epic’s insurance policy. You’ll want the entirety of the ski season covered if you’re a Parkite and ski Park City Mountain weekly or hop between ski resorts under the Vail Resorts umbrella. So log in to your EpicPass account ASAP and elect for Epic Coverage to apply for the “Core Season” of Dec. 8 2020 to April 4, 2021. Note that you must make this change for each person on your account, not just the primary account holder.
Below is a graphic with details about your Epic Coverage options, and here are the steps you can take to select which version of Epic Coverage you want this season:
Log in to your account on EpicPass.com > Click “My Epic Account” > Click “Season Passes” > Scroll down and click on the “Epic Coverage” section > Scroll down and click “Edit” and select which days you want covered. (We suggest: “Core Season, All Resorts”)
