There is bit of fine print. You have to go to all of those Euro resorts to win, but the lifetime pass is only for the resorts directly operated by Vail. And of course to win you're probably going to have to visit all of these places under early season low tide conditions. Probably no worse conditions than Patrick has experienced on several occasions in pursuit of THE STREAK though. :stir:

I've read it, but you cannot ski at more than 2 resorts a day. They have in their list: les 3 vallées, Courchevel, La Tania, Brides les Bains, Meribel, Val Thorens, Les Menuires and Ore-something. That forces you to stay one week at les 3 vallées, not that there anything wrong with that.

My comment was more on the "Lifetime" aspect. Ask if the people at Killington got a lifetime out of their "lifetime" pass. :popcorn: Current ownership didn't recognized the lifetime pass given by a previous ownership.

I like the contest idea; however, one could argue that anyone who manages to ski all of those resorts, particularly the Alps contingent, probably has enough money to pay for his/her own yearly Epic Pass.

LOL, Tony never passes up an opportunity to bust on Patrick for THE STREAK.

Particularly since someone will have to take several flights and most of November/December off to get this done.

I would first have to upgrade my Tahoe Value to Epic Pass. And I would not want to spend the money trying to do this without a really good chance of ending up one of the winners. It would be fun planning it and trying and I only was planning to work 3 days in Nov: Oregon, Cal and Notre Dame football games at Stanford. My wife was not very supportive when I mentioned it to her.
