Instead the US company has trumpeted its replacement, the Epic Australia Pass, and its access to overseas resorts also owned by the firm.
The Border Mail emailed a series of questions to Vail on Tuesday about the Local Pass' axing, including whether it was economically driven or because the company did not believe locals warranted different treatment to other mountain users.
Vail general manager Victoria and Hotham Belinda Trembath replied yesterday with a statement that failed to answer those queries and instead spruiked the Epic pass.
"Falls Creek and Hotham are committed to the local community and delivering exceptional experiences for our guests and are excited to be part of the Epic Australia Pass for the 2020 winter and beyond," Ms Trembath said.
"The Epic Australia Pass is the best value season pass available to Australians giving access to Falls Creek, Hotham and Perisher, as well as Japan, Whistler Blackcomb, Park City, Vail, Breckenridge and more."
The Epic pass is being advertised for $849 for adults, $654 for seniors and $479 for students but those prices will rise before next winter.
The Local Pass, which was only available to those with Albury and North East postcodes, had an upfront fee of $260 for adults and $150 for children and offered $50 and $40 discounted day tickets.
Ms Trembath said the Epic pass "pays for itself in just over six days" and offered lesson and hire discounts and free night skiing at Falls Creek and Hotham.
"We understand that this is a change from the products that were previously available to our local guests and we encourage them to buy early to receive the best available value," she said.
News of the end of the Local Pass was greeted with dismay by Border Mail readers reacting on Facebook.
One declared Vail was "not interested in locals" while others were upset at over-70s no longer being able to ski for free.
