Epic Australia Pass 2020

We are Epic together! Vail Resorts has announced implementation of a COVID-19 Safe Operating Plan for its Australian resorts, focused on protecting employees, guests and the communities the Company operates in. Under the plan, Falls Creek, Hotham and Perisher will be adhering to all regulations surrounding COVID-19, which will require changes to both mountain operations and guest access. All three resorts will operate at approximately 50 percent of normal capacity to enable physical distancing measures per current government guidelines, until any changes aloe for greater access.
