Winter is coming and with it comes the excitement of hitting the slopes again. If you’re planning on skiing more than a few days this season, chances are that purchasing a season pass will prove to be a more economical decision than buying multiple day passes.

Though there are many types of ski passes out there—from a season pass to a small, local mountain to one that gives you access to more than 100 European resorts—here, we’ll break down the basics for the Epic and Ikon passes.

Where to travel with Inspirato on the Ikon Pass

Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada

Two hours outside of Montreal, Mont-Tremblant boasts 102 trails and world-class skiing conditions. The resort, centered around a Scandinavian-inspired pedestrian village, also features dining, plenty of shopping, and an on-site casino. Stay at Havre Tremblant, a chic townhome with mountain views and ski-in, ski-out access.

Deer Valley, Utah

Snowboarders beware—this resort is one of the few ski-only mountains left. If you happen to be a skier, Deer Valley is a posh resort just outside of Park City offering 2,026 skiable acres and 101 runs. Inspirato members can enjoy access to the Montage Deer Valley for a luxe winter getaway with premier ski-in, ski-out access. Inspirato also offers numerous residences in Deer Valley, like Royal Lookout, a four-bedroom home with private hot tub, home theater, and valley views.

Where to travel with Inspirato on the Epic Pass

Vail, Colorado

is one of the most well-known and largest alpine resorts in the world with 5,317 acres of skiable terrain. It is also the biggest mountain destination in the Inspirato portfolio. Right near the gondola in the heart of Vail, are 20 luxury condos at Solaris (like Après Vouz), ranging from two to six bedrooms. For a modern mountain escape, stay at Juniper—a five-bedroom home nestled in the trees overlooking Gore Creek with ample outdoor space.

Stowe, Vermont

Beneath majestic Mount Mansfield—the highest peak in Vermont—Stowe Mountain Resort offers 116 trails on 485 skiable acres. Visit Stowe with Inspirato (and bring up to 11 of your friends) at Sterling, a two-story home with a private balcony boasting Mt. Mansfield views, a cozy fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Ski-related benefits for Inspirato members

Inspirato members enjoy access to a rich variety of benefits through their membership with the club; skiers will be particularly interested in Ski Butlers’ award-winning ski and snowboard rental delivery service that eliminates a visit to a ski shop. Ski Butlers is available at all of Inspirato’s Western mountain destinations.
