It also gives you the ability to ski and ride at Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Kirkwood, Northstar California, Heavenly, Afton Alps, Mt. Brighton, five days at Verbier in Switzerland, and new this year, Eldora. To figure out which pass suits your needs best, consult the Pass Finder.

2) EpicMix

3) Epic Pass Club

All pass holders are automatically enrolled in the Epic Pass Club. Membership comes with great perks, including a free rental upgrade, a half price tune-up, free room upgrades (if available), 15% off food and soft drinks after 2pm at all non-mountain table service restaurants, and much more.

4) Savings

If you’re planning to ski or ride more than 5 days next season, buying the Epic Pass before April 14 for only $49 down will definitely save you money. An Epic Pass could easily pay for itself over the course of a one week vacation on the basis of lift tickets alone, not to mention the additional discounts available from the Epic Pass club. You will also get six “Ski With A Friend” passes that provide discounts on additional single-day tickets – so bring a buddy!

Getting a lift ticket this year, but considering a pass next? From now until April 14, if you purchase one lift ticket it can be used towards the price of the 2013-2014 season pass. The pass must be paid in full at the window before April 14, but consider it a free day skiing this season. Spring Breakers, rejoice!

5) Year-Round Fun

If you purchase your Epic Pass today, you’ll not only ensure a great Winter full of exhilarating adventures and beautiful alpine views, but you will also gain summer lift access for hiking at Breck as well as the other Colorado and Tahoe resorts during Summer ’13.

There are so many more reasons to spend your season on the slopes of Breckenridge – what’s yours?
