• Colorado Mountain Express to rebrand to Epic Mountain Express
• Colorado Ski & Sports/Golf to rebrand to Epic Mountain Gear
BROOMFIELD, Colo.,– Vail Resorts announced that the company will align the brands of both Colorado Mountain Express and Colorado Ski & Sports/Golf to its Epic brand, rebranding the lines of business to Epic Mountain Express and Epic Mountain Gear.
“The rebrand of Colorado Mountain Express and Colorado Ski & Sports/Golf to Epic Mountain Express and Epic Mountain Gear is a physical representation of the brand promise we make to our guests at every touch point throughout their experience with us,” said James O’Donnell, executive vice president of hospitality, retail and real estate for Vail Resorts. “Our Company’s mission is to provide our guests with an experience of a lifetime and by aligning these lines of business with the Epic brand, our guests will know that they can expect the same exceptional service with these two brands that they would when they visit any of our world-class resorts.”
As part of the transition to Epic Mountain Express over the coming months, the majority of the Colorado Mountain Express fleet will be branded with a new, modernized logo and a sleek design that reflects the new brand. The transition is expected to be complete by late-fall. The rebrand will also be incorporated into the Great Hall at Denver International Airport, which is currently under construction, where Vail Resorts will also have an Epic Mountain Express desk to assist arriving guests.
The brand was first introduced in Frisco, Colo. in 2014 through its flagship store, which brought the Epic brand to life and re-imagined the mountain retail experience. It later expanded into the Front Range in Boulder, Colo. and now the remaining five Colorado Ski & Sports/Golf locations will be brought under the Epic Mountain Gear umbrella in August. These locations will continue to provide exceptional customer service and expertise, carry the best brands of mountain gear and provide services that include rentals, tunes, the Junior Trade Program and more. They will also provide access to an Epic service desk, which will sell and reprint Epic Pass products as well as lift tickets, ski school lessons and Epic Discovery passes. Starting Labor Day weekend, guests will be able to experience the remodeled locations during Epic Mountain Gear’s pre-season sale, Ski Rex, with gear up to 60 percent off.
