Brighton or Wilmot Mountain — E  PIC 4-DAY ($459)—perfect for the long weekend at Stowe or the other North American resorts Beyond bringing a gleam in the eye to current Epic Pass holders, the recent addition of Stowe means both the diehard East and West Coast skiers can finally agree on something.
