    I am hearing that the Perisher / Vail Epic pass won't cover Whistler for this coming season, in my opinion it is a smart move for both Perisher and Whistler, Thredbo badly need to counter this move or they will see a drop off in season passes I think.

    The article says Epic pass wont be integrated until 17/18 season. Which is a bummer as I'm off to Whistler for 2 weeks mid jan next year. (geez some of the whistler deals were too good to pass up this year.) But happy given Im in a lodge at Perisher and as it adds another resort in North America as an option on the Annual Epic pass.

    Makes Vail Resorts own the 3 largest resorts in Nor-am - Whistler, Park City and Vail. Wonder what's next on their global conquest?

    Do you get the feeling it setting up like a Cloes / Woolworths scenario. 2 majors battling it for supremacy while smaller operators start getting squeezed out?
