Eagle County Merchant Passes can be purchased from any Vail or Beaver Creek Ticket Office. There are two ways to purchase Merchant Passes:

  • Vouchers can be purchased in bulk and given to employees to exchange at any ticket office with the documentation described in Step 4. We recommend merchants track the voucher # they give to each employee.
  • Passes can be paid for by company check or company credit card. The company’s name must be on the form of payment.  Checks should be made out to Vail Resorts.

In addition, Merchant Passes are eligible for a one-time $100 transfer within the same business. The $100 payment must be made with a company check or company credit card.
