Once upon a time buying a season pass required enormous commitment. The pass was a de facto marker of ski and snowboard identity, staking your claim to a single mountain for an entire winter come powder or high pressure. These days, however, season passes are synonymous with flexibility and variety giving us more ways to chase The Greatest Snow on Earth® in all its distinct varieties throughout Utah. With a host of multi-mountain pass options available—including the Epic Pass, the Ikon Pass, the Mountain Collective and the Indy Pass— it’s never been easier and more affordable to sample the slopes. Read on to find out which one is right for you.
