Hi All.  I know the Epic Pass price goes up tomorrow so trying to buy today.  Their 1/800 line is over loaded, is says call back next week.  Here is my question, if I am going to ski 3 days in December (not on the holiday) at Breckenridge and in Fed. ski 3 more days at Vail.

Can I buy one pass for 6 days and ski two different places across 2 months or should I buy 1 pass for each location and time?

My best guess about your question:  It looks like you are talking about the Epic Day Pass product which allows you to buy between one and seven days of skiing at a variety of Vail Resorts.  So the answer is yes, you can use this product at different resorts at different times until your purchased amount of days are used up, in your case six.  I won't comment on their reservation system because I don't know the workings of it, but it could add another variable in your plan.

from vail website:

Now in its second year, the Epic Day Pass provides unprecedented flexibility and season pass discounts to guests with customizable access. With this pass, guests can unlock discounts of up to 50% off lift ticket window prices by selecting the number of days they plan to ski or ride – from one day to seven days – and whether or not to add holiday access. Days do not have to be used consecutively. The Epic Day Pass provides the following access and benefits:

Specified number of days across: Whistler Blackcomb, Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Crested Butte, Park City, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, Stowe, Okemo, Mount Sunapee, Stevens Pass, Mount Snow, Attitash, Wildcat, Crotched, Hunter Mountain, Liberty, Roundtop, Whitetail, Jack Frost, Big Boulder, Alpine Valley, Boston Mills, Brandywine, Mad River, Hidden Valley, Snow Creek, Paoli Peaks.

Partner access: For guests purchasing four or more days of access, they may also use days purchased to access Telluride, Sun Valley, Snowbasin and Resorts of the Canadian Rockies.

Yes you can buy one epic day pass for non holiday $589 ( not good on January 16 in your case) and you can ski about everything that vail owns. Besides the more days you buy the cheaper each incremental day is. Cost including holidays is $696

On the other hand you could buy the epic local pass for $749 and also have unrestricted access to Vail's Mid Atlantic ski areas. In the event you wanted to head west another time, the days would cost you nothing. Also, It would be like getting a Mid Atlantic season pass for $150 more., or $53 more than a holidays included day pass.
