Snow-lovers have benefited from Vail Resort’s Epic Pass for years. The pass affords outdoor enthusiasts unlimited access to a number of winter resorts throughout the country for one low price. Now Vail is adding Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah to sweeten the deal.
In late March Vail announced it will be operating Canyons Resort. The company is at home in Park City and has added it to a long list of operations in Colorado, Utah, Lake Tahoe (California/Nevada), Minnesota and Michigan. Vail also operates a summer resort in Wyoming and holds luxury resort hotels throughout the country. The company’s headquarters is located in Broomfield, Colo.
2013-2014 Epic Pass holders will receive unlimited and unrestricted access to the resort alongside Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Northstar, Heavenly, Eldora and Kirkwood. The pass is on sale at $689 for adults compared to Canyons season pass price of $849 last year.
The business deal gives Vail operation rights for its 50-year lease. The previous operator, Talisker Corporation, will retain developmental rights for the real estate of the resort. Anticipated improvements to the resort can only increase the value of Park City real estate and Utah vacation homes in the area.
A press release issued by Vail quoted Talisker Chief Executive Officer Jack Bistricer, “Vail Resorts is the clear leader in the mountain resort industry and I am confident that they can replicate at Canyons the success they have delivered at resorts such as Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Northstar. I am incredibly proud of all that our team has accomplished at Canyons over the past five years and am confident that together with Vail Resorts, we can create one of the greatest mountain resorts in the world.”
