Vail Resorts is now adding top European winter sport hot spots to its season pass. The Epic Pass is now the only multi-resort pass to feature European destinations. In addition, the pass includes its classic unlimited access to resorts in Colorado, Utah, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Lake Tahoe and Australia.
New additions to the pass include popular ski spots in Austria, Switzerland, France and Italy, including Les 3 Vallees, Paradiski and Tignes-Val d’Isere in France; Skirama Dolomiti Adamello Brenta in Italy; 4 Vallees in Switzerland; and Arlberg in Austria.
“There is nothing in the ski industry today that can compare to the value of the Epic Pass. The value of the Epic Pass is giving skiers and snowboarders the flexibility to ski when they want and the choice to ski where they want, and the variety of experiences our resorts offer, whether it’s the iconic slopes of Vail or Park City, or the grandeur and tradition of Europe, which should be on the bucket list of every skier or snowboarder. Whether you ski five days or 100, no pass is tailored to the way skiers and snowboarders actually want to access the best mountains in the world like the Epic Pass,” said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer, Vail Resorts.
While European access is not unlimited, as is ski access in the United States, the offers are quite generous. Enjoy six days of free skiing in France, five days of free skiing in Switzerland, three days of free skiing in Italy and three days of free skiing in Austria. Switzerland is the only destination requiring consecutive ski days.
The Epic Pass starts at $809 for those ages 13 and up. A child’s Epic Pass is available for younger children for $419. Pass insurance is available in case of sickness, injury or job loss.

United Airlines teamed with Timeshifter, a sleep help app, to assist travelers battling jet lag. Timeshifter outlines the best times to see and avoid light, sleep and either enjoy or pass on caffeine to best avoid jet lag when traveling through time zones.

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
