Vail Resorts Monday announced its season pass lineup and kicked-off its spring pass sales period for the 2011-2012 ski and snowboard season.

“We've simplified this year's season pass line-up and with the new Epic Local Pass, Colorado skiers and riders can now access the best resorts in Colorado and the best resorts in Lake Tahoe. Also, new this year, we've taken the hassle out of buying your pass. Epic Local Pass holders can order their season passes online rather than picking them up at a Front Range location,” said Blaise Carrig, co-president of Vail Resorts' Mountain Division.

I would like to know if there is any discount for seniors over age 70 on the epic pass for 2011-2012. I live in Colorado Springs and a bunch of us have been skiing at Copper/Winter Park mainly because of the price there. WE would rather ski at Breck/Keystone and 10 days at Vail. Breck et al is closer to CSP etc.
