Starting this week, the entire suite of Epic Pass products jumped in price for the final time until the beginning of the winter season. Pricing ranges from $239 for a kid’s Keystone A-Basin Pass (the cheapest available) to $809 for a full adult Epic Pass, including unlimited riding at Vail, Beaver Creek and all Tahoe-area resorts. Here’s a look at details for each of the products. Keep in mind: pricing will jump again when Keystone opens for the season in early November.
