Shaun White and Epic Give Back

Epic Season Pass
(and $1 for each Epic 7-Day and Epic Local Pass) sold this Fall to Shaun's chosen charity
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
. Shaun will represent all six world-class mountain resorts on the Epic Pass and Northstar in Lake Tahoe will become Shaun’s home mountain and primary training resort, where he will also be designing his own 22-foot halfpipe for aspiring snowboards to enjoy.
"Shaun White is the ultimate personification of the new energy and vibrancy we see across the mountain resort industry. Shaun's creativity and innovation has led the way for the self-expression we see in the halfpipes and terrain parks at all six of our resorts. Shaun embodies the same leadership we aspire to at Vail Resorts, as we constantly look for ways to improve and re-invent the guest experience," said Rob Katz, chairman and chief executive officer of Vail Resorts. "We are excited to partner with Shaun and are thrilled to start our collaboration with a promotion that allows us to celebrate his creativity and commitment to give back to those in need."
"This feels like a homecoming because I have spent so much time riding at most of Vail Resorts' mountains," said White. "With Northstar as my home mountain, I now have the ideal place to train and continue to grow as an athlete and I am looking forward to all the possibilities this partnership brings."
