What card should I use to access lifts for the 2022 Australian winter season?

The RFID scanning technology used in Australia and the Northern Hemisphere is different, this means that cards issued by the US team will not work in Australia, and vice versa.

The Mountain Access Card mailed out to you by the Epic Australia Pass team is valid for use in Perisher, Falls Creek and Hotham.

Both US Epic Pass cards and Epic Australia Pass Mountain Access Cards are reusable, we recommend holding onto them for continued use in future seasons.

Are reservations required with my Military Epic Pass in 2022?

We do not anticipate 2022 Military Epic Pass holders will need to make reservations to ski or ride at Perisher, Falls Creek or Hotham this season. However, in the event the resorts need to manage capacity to allow for physical distancing, Vail Resorts may manage access through a reservation system that prioritises pass holders.

How do I sign in to my account?

You may be wondering about the difference between a US Epic Pass account and an Epic Australia Pass account. 
The US Epic Pass and Epic Australia Pass sales systems are separate. As the Military Epic Pass is sold via, it sits within the US Epic Pass sales system. 
This means that Military Epic Pass holders will need to have an account set up in each of these systems to record your information and lift access.

  • Your US Epic Pass account was used to purchase your pass via
  • Your Epic Australia Pass account will be used to store your lift access for the Australian winter season.
