Dreaming of the day you can get back to winter to explore Perisher’s four resort areas, chase your family through the snow-covered village in Falls Creek, or hit Heavenly Valley first tracks at Hotham? With the 2021 Epic Australia Pass, you can explore them all and more, and with the peace of mind provided by free Epic Coverage.

Epic Coverage is free with every Epic Australia Pass and gives you refunds for job loss, injury, certain resort closures (including Covid-related closures) and more. 


  • Access to Perisher, Falls Creek and Hotham for the 2021 season.
  • Five consecutive days with no blackout dates at both Hakuba Valley and Rusutsu, Japan for the 2021/22 season.
  • 10 days combined at Whistler Blackcomb, Vail and Beaver Creek in the 2021/22 season (holiday restrictions apply; days do not have to be consecutive).

2021 Epic Australia Pass access starts with the 2021 Australian snow season and concludes with the 2021/22 snow season in the Northern Hemisphere.

We do not anticipate 2021 Epic Australia 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.

Epic Coverage, Free With Every Pass

Epic Coverage is included FREE with every 2021 Epic Australia Pass and provides refunds associated with certain personal events, including certain resort closures (such as any due to COVID-19), illness, job loss, injury and more.

Epic Coverage replaces Pass Refund Protection and is automatically included with every 2021 Epic Australia Pass.

To ensure your Epic Coverage is tailored to your skiing and riding preferences, once you have completed the checkout process you will have the opportunity to answer two questions about the resort(s) you would like to have covered and when you plan to ski or ride.
