Vail, you're too nice. For all the procrastinators out there, snow.com announced that the deadline for purchasing an Epic Pass, one of the five season pass options for skiing seven resorts in Colorado and Lake Tahoe, has been extended. Instead of being left out in the cold by not purchasing your pass before the clock struck November 30, skiers and snowboarders now have until December 5 to add a pass to their online shopping cart.
Ooh, six more days to decide? It's almost too good to be true, considering I forgot last year's deadline, forgot to badger husband to buy a pass and then forgot that he wouldn't want to ski as often as me as a result. I know what I'd be adding to my Christmas wish list if our TV didn't break two weeks ago--I'd be going Epic. Skiing through winter certainly beats suffering through it in the Windy City. But even that doesn't have to be the case this winter with a Chicago to Vail deal if you travel between January 8 and February 17, and book your trip by next Monday. Check out all the details if you're like me and can't tolerate Midwest skiing. Or rather the 30 seconds or less it takes to ski down the run followed by the 15-minute lift line.
