Vouchers can be purchased in bulk and given to employees to exchange at any pass 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.
All upgrades of Epic Local Merchant Passes must be handled through the Merchant Pass Coordinators or the Golden Peak Ticket Office.
