Reserve Priority Ski Days: For increased guest safety, Epic Pass resorts are requiring pass holders to reserve ski days. Reservations will be required to access the mountains. Pass holders get the mountains to themselves with exclusive early season access through Dec. 7 and receive an early opportunity to reserve up to seven Priority Reservation Days for the core season (Dec. 8 - April 4) before lift tickets go on sale. The exclusive reservation window runs Nov. 6 through Dec. 7. If you cannot get the Priority Reservation Days you want by Dec. 7, and have not used your pass, you can get a refund with Epic Coverage. Pass holders can make as many week-of reservations during the season as your pass type and availability allow. Week-of reservations are in addition to your Priority Reservation Days. As you use your Priority Reservation Days, you can book new ones, holding up to seven at any time, or as many as your pass type allows.

2019-20 Season Pass Credit: Vail Resorts is providing credits to 2019/20 season pass holders, based on the number of days used, to apply toward the purchase of a 2020/21 season pass of equal or greater value. You can book your 2020/21 season pass with regardless of where you purchased last year. Deadline to redeem your credit expires September 17.

Epic Coverage is included FREE for all pass holders, and provides refunds associated with certain personal events, including illness, job loss, and injury. It also expands coverage to protect you from certain resort closures, such as any due to COVID-19. Passes are non-transferable. Any refunds that meet Epic Coverage guidelines will be facilitated through Epic.

Adventure Assurance: Any 20/21 Ikon Pass purchased can be deferred to the 2021/22 season. If your selected Ikon Pass destination closes due to an eligible COVID-19 event between December 10, 2020 and April 11, 2021, you will receive a proportional credit towards the purchase of any 21/22 Ikon Pass. Passes are non-transferable. Any refunds that meet Adventure Assurance guidelines will be facilitated through Ikon.
