A message from Chief Marketing Officer Kirsten Lynch on Monday, March 5
Today, I am pleased to announce another long-term alliance on our Epic Pass, this time with the iconic Resorts of the Canadian Rockies (RCR): Fernie Alpine Resort, Kicking Horse Mountain and Kimberley Alpine Resort in British Columbia; Nakiska in Alberta; and Mont Sainte Anne and Stoneham in Quebec.
Beginning with the 2018-19 season, the Epic Pass and Epic 7-Day Pass will offer seven days with no blackout dates and the Epic 4-Day will offer four days with no blackout dates at the six Canadian resorts. This brings our Epic Pass total to 61 mountain resorts in eight countries, offering skiers and snowboarders the greatest variety with the most popular season pass in the global mountain resort industry at an unmatched value.
Perhaps best known among the RCR family of resorts are Kicking Horse and Fernie, located in the southeast corner of British Columbia on the legendary "Powder Highway". Both Kicking Horse and Fernie are consistently ranked among the top 10 Canadian resorts as ultimate playgrounds that cater to powder hounds with their abundant annual snowfall and big mountain skiing. Kicking Horse, also known as "The Champagne Powder Capital of Canada" is situated just outside the charming historic logging town of Golden and boasts a diverse mix of expert and extreme terrain and one of the longest vertical drops—4,133 feet—in North America. Home to the World Freeride Tour, the ski resort is known for its four large alpine bowls, 85 long steep chutes and short lift lines. Fernie features over 2,500 acres of skiable terrain and 3,550 vertical feet, including 142 trails, five alpine bowls. Have a reputation for the best powder in the Rockies, Fernie is a true winter playground for skiers and riders of all levels.
