Hello My ski buddy, who is not very familiar with using forums, has asked me to post this question on his behalf and we would appreciate any advice you can offer please. He has an EPIC Perisher season pass 2017 (without upgrades) and is keen to go to Canada (Whistler) skiing in January 2018, however he is finding it very difficult to get info on how the EPIC pass actually works utilising all the discounts they say it offers. For example: he might instead ski Vail or others if the discount was a lot more than Canada, but finding accommodation which relates to deals on the EPIC card is very confusing. He is aware of the restrictions in Canada which is 10 days and holiday restrictions, but would only go for 8 days and work around these dates. He just can't find the accommodation and whether the pass will cover all lifts apart from the above restrictions. He doesn’t think he needs an upgrade at this point. As he lives in Cairns he is comparing this against skiing in Japan (shorter hour flight) but would then have to look for package deals and pay for lifts accommodation etc, as opposed to using the EPIC Perisher Season Pass and flying to Canada and take advantage of accommodation discounts and free lifts working around the restrictions. Thanks for any help, guidance or advice you can offer.
