Anyone else already dreaming about ski season? Debating whether it makes sense to buy a pass (usually get the Epic) or just to stick to daily tickets given uncertainty around travel even within US. Whistler seems like a distant dream- sigh! The insurance covers resort closures but would probably not cover travel challenges. What are others doing?

I would check the insurance/Covid policies. If you are close enough to drive to a resort included in the pass, I’d go for it (we are but are going with the icon pass because we have a place in one of their resort towns). If you have to fly— I would hesitate.

Bought my epic pass as I live in Missouri 8 hours away from Denver. I just drive so it's easier for me. They are doing reservations to limit people on the mountain. You have 7 days guaranteed, and if you do more than that you have to reserve week of. They are limiting the amount people on lifts together to your group. Skiing has tons of clothing and protection so I'm not that worried tbh. Just stay away from bars and restaurants, and wear a mask like tons of people do on the slopes.
