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.
This spring, Mountain Collective passes are on sale for only $429 USD. Enough said.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Initially the pass included two combined Alta/Bird passes, but now you get two days at EACH mountain.
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.
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.
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:
International Affiliates (subject to change during the season)
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.
