The 2013-14 ski and snowboard season was a roller coaster of emotions. The early season saw big snows and cold in the east but fell into a freeze/thaw cycle during the winter that kept everyone on their toes. Colorado, Utah, Idaho and Montana had different results based on their location in the Rocky Mountains, with Colorado and Montana/Wyoming getting lots of pow, while Utah and Idaho had less. Lake Tahoe and Mammoth looked like they were going to face a second drought year in a row early on, but have ended up having a pretty standard season with good late spring snow depths.
There’s one question every skier or snowboarder must ask themselves before planning the upcoming season: How much do I plan on hitting the slopes? If the answer is at least five times, you might want to consider the Epic Season Pass. Now is as good a time as ever, as until April 14 you only need to put $49 down in order to snag a 2014 – 2015 Epic Season Pass at its lowest price. But the question still remains: Which is the right one for you?
For many skiers and riders, the Epic Pass is just the ticket for enjoying a multitude of lift served downhill fun. Some though, scoff at it as a gimmick. But let’s look under the hood and see why it can be a good thing for some of you! It’s in its sixth season now, and we think it’s an obvious winner!
Easter Sunday has been the traditional last day of the ski season. But this year, Easter Sunday is April 24th. That means, all across the country, there is some great April skiing to be had.
