No, we are no longer offering a Stowe-only Senior Pass, as the Adult Epic Pass is the best deal for unlimited, unrestricted access to Stowe—it pays for itself in just over four days. The new Epic Pass offers unlimited, unrestricted access to Colorado: Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin; Utah: Park City; California: Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood; Canada: Whistler Blackcomb; Vermont: Stowe; Illinois: Wilmot; Minnesota: Afton Alps; and Michigan: Mt.

No, we are no longer offering the Young Adult Pass; however, there are two options depending on how many days and where you want to ski. The Epic Local Pass is a good choice if you plan to ski any days outside of a holiday period at Stowe. If you want unlimited, unrestricted access, the Epic Pass is the right choice for you.

No, the Epic Pass and Epic Local Pass prices will not be increasing because of the addition of Stowe. Over the years, we've added several new mountain resorts to our collection and yet the price of the pass has basically risen in conjunction with inflation, not because of the acquisitions. Purchasing your pass early secures the best price and the best benefits. As the season gets closer, the price increases.
