Vail Resorts pays the most (and in many cases, all) of the cost of specific benefits for eligible employees and their dependents. The rates below show you what eligible employees pay for the associated benefit coverages from 1/1/2019 - 7/31/2019. 

When you review your paycheque, you will now see the individual benefits listed as earnings for the amount Whistler Blackcomb pays on your behalf. You will also see a corresponding deduction for the amount you are paying.  The "What You Pay" amounts below are not shown on your paycheque.  To calculate the "What You Pay" amount for Extend Health & Dental, take the difference between your paycheck after-tax deduction and the associated credit listed under "Hours and Earnings".  

Benefit deductions & earnings start the pay period ending prior to your coverage start date.  If you are not paid during a pay period or you are not paid enough to cover the premiums, those deductions & earnings will be applied to future paychecks.  The pay period ending prior to your coverage end date will not have deductions & earnings applied.

Be sure to review the Color Groups to accurately identify what you would pay for benefits.
