Vail resort extends ski season for an extra week (through April 17) and Epic Passes are now available for purchase online.

“When we work with residential clients, we always ask what brought them to Vail Valley. The answer usually has something to do with the awesome ski resorts all within close proximity.

The 2015/2016 ski season may be drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean that avid skiers should put off preparing for next year. The 2016/2107 Epic Pass is currently on sale for the next season through April 10, 2016, so those who are interested should not delay (

There are three amazing Epic Pass options depending on how frequently and where you plan to ski. The traditional Epic Pass allows you to ski restriction-free at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Wilmot, Afton Alps, Mt. Brighton, and Arapahoe Basin, not to mention out-of-state options like Park City, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, and Perisher in Australia (2017 access). Those who purchase before April 10 will also be given six Buddy Tickets as a perk.

“This area is such an awesome place to call home since it has some of the most fantastic ski mountains in the entire world,” said Todd Morrison, owner of Precision Construction West ( Todd went on to explain that the ski resorts are a big reason why people choose to build custom homes in the Vail Valley and also why it’s such a popular area for second home buyers.

“Residential clients frequently cite the mountains and ski resorts as one of the main reasons why they want to live in Vail Valley. And, the great thing about the Epic Pass is that there's a perfect option for everyone," said Morrison.

The Epic Local Pass offers more restrictive access at Breckenridge, Keystone, Wilmot, Afton Alps, Mt. Brighton, and Arapahoe Basin with limited restrictions at Park City, Heavenly, Northstar, and Kirkwood. For information on pricing and details on all of the passes, please visit

Adds Chris Jarnot, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Vail Mountain, "Our snow conditions have just continued to get better and better throughout the month and we’ve had some of the best skiing and snowboarding of the year in the past couple of weeks. It’s too good right now not to stay open and give our pass holders the gift of another week to get out and enjoy what has been an amazing season at Vail."

Vail Mountain holds a special place in PCW’s heart because the company continues to work closely with them on projects at the resort. Prior to the 2015/2016 ski season, they completed a ski signage project at Chairs 3 and 4. The objective was to offer better signage to out-of-town patrons.
