Score The Greatest Snow On Earth With The Mountain Collective Pass

By Snow Travelista \ March 29 2017

Plan to ski Utah next season? This is the deal you can’t ignore. Unless you really like throwing away money, in which case, close the screen now before you’re tempted to become frugal.

Mountain Collective just upped their game, making the pass a must buy for Utah skiers and riders this spring, even if you never leave the state. But why wouldn’t you explore new pow when you could ski for 32 days all over the United States and Canada on one pass?

Even better, the Mountain Collective Pass also includes two days at each Global Affiliate Resort. Currently included are: Valle Nevado, Chile; Hakuba Valley, Japan; and Chamonix Mont Blanc, France.

Now do I have your attention? Let me explain how this pass can pay for itself.

Special Spring Pricing and Benefits


Pricing Special

This spring, Mountain Collective passes are on sale for only $429 USD. Enough said.

Added Day

Spring pass purchasers receive one bonus day at The Collective destination of your choice plus two additional days at Global Affiliate Resorts. This means you could ski a total of seven days within Utah if you choose, or use the extra day at any member resort.

Bring the Kids for a Dollar

Another killer deal; get a $99 pass for your little ski buddy (12 and under) with purchase of an adult 2017-18 season pass. Not a typo!

Pro Tip: If you have a 5th or 6th grader, also grab the Ski Utah 5th and 6th Grade Passport for more free days all over the state.

Buy Now and The Pass Pays For Itself in Less Than Four Days

If you buy four or more regularly priced lift tickets at participating resorts per season, this pass is paid for. Two adult lift tickets at Snowbasin and two at Snowbird would regularly cost $430, so you’re already even right there. Add Alta, and the value shoots up to $622 (based on 2016-17 season prices). This means you’re ahead $193 if all you did was utilize the six Utah days. Take advantage of the 50% discount on additional tickets (see below), you’ll rack up even more savings.

Snowbasin Joins the Collective in 2017-18

Mountain Collective Pass Holders now get two days to shred Snowbasin in addition to Alta and Snowbird, a total of six days to dive deep into the Greatest Snow on Earth.

Added Days at Alta and Snowbird

Initially the pass included two combined Alta/Bird passes, but now you get two days at EACH mountain.

Unlimited Additional Days at 50% Off

Whoa! This isn’t some blackout-laden deal. There are NO BLACKOUTS. It’s a legit benefit of holding The Pass. Use it, abuse it, and enjoy unlimited 50% off lift tickets at all of The Collective resorts.

Save on a Weekend Getaway

Yes, the Mountain Collective pass is a great deal within Utah…but why not explore a little? Sun Valley and Jackson Hole are an easy weekend drive plus your pass includes discounts on lodging.


Really Spread Your Wings

So far I’ve focused on what a great deal the Mountain Collective Pass is in and near Utah, but there are 16 members of The Collective in North America plus three International Affiliates. And don’t forget, lodging discounts are included in your pass benefits as well.

Here is a complete list:

The Collective

  • Alta Ski Area
  • Aspen Snowmass
  • Banff Sunshine
  • Coronet Peak | The Remarkables
  • Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
  • Lake Louise Ski Resort
  • Mammoth Mountain
  • Revelstoke Mountain Resort
  • Snowbasin Resort
  • Snowbird
  • Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows
  • Sugarbush Resort
  • Sun Valley
  • Taos Ski Valley
  • Telluride Ski Resort
  • Thredbo Alpine Village

International Affiliates (subject to change during the season)

  • Valle Nevado, Chile
  • Hakuba Valley, Japan
  • Chamonix Mont Blanc, France

 

The math on this deal is easy if you already ski or ride Collective resorts four or more days a season, but why not explore new mountains? Having this pass in your pocket makes it possible to plan budget friendly trips with the whole family. But don’t think too long; this is a spring special, so snap up this deal before it is gone.
