Vail Resorts and Telluride Ski & Golf announced that skiers and snowboarders are able to hit Telluride with their Epic Passes starting in the 2018/2019 winter season. The addition of Telluride brings the total mountain resorts available through the pass up to 46. Epic Pass holders will receive a couple of added perks at Telluride, including direct access to the lifts and discounted tickets.

This announcement comes shortly after news of the Ikon Pass, which some say may rival the Epic Pass with its 23 national and international destinations.
