Multi-mountain pass options are growing as the Mountain Collective heads into the 2018-19 season welcoming Montana’s Big Sky and Northern Japan-based Niseko United to its roster. Previously a global affiliate, Niseko United will join the Mountain Collective as a full partner for the 2018-19 season, expanding the breadth of the Collective with full partner destinations in five countries, and affiliates in two more.

Big Sky and Niseko United join Alta, Aspen Snowmass, Banff Sunshine, Coronet Peak – The Remarkables, Jackson Hole, Lake Louise, Mammoth, Revelstoke, Snowbasin, Snowbird, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Sugarbush, Sun Valley, Taos, and Thredbo in the Mountain Collective alliance of 17 destinations.

Niseko United is one of Japan’s premier ski resorts, with over 2,000 acres of skiable terrain split over 4 resorts - Grand Hirafu, Niseko Village, Hanazono and Annupuri. (Mountain Collective)

Colin Hackworth, President of Japan’s Niseko United resort Hanazono, said, “The four resorts of Niseko United are delighted to be joining the Mountain Collective as a full partner. The fabled powder of Niseko awaits all Mountain Collective riders dreaming of their opportunity to visit one of the most storied deep snow resorts on the planet.”

In addition to its 6-pack bubble lift, Big Sky will add the first eight-seat, high-speed chairlift in North America to its arsenal this winter. (Mountain Collective)

“Big Sky Resort is thrilled to be a part of this collection of top resort destinations,” added Taylor Middleton, General Manager and President of Big Sky Resort. “Imagine mapping out your dream ski road trip; the Mountain Collective is it!"

Seasonal winds from the Eurasian continent pick up moisture over the warm currents of the Sea of Japan to form clouds made of some of the driest, lightest powder snow in the world. (Mountain Collective)

The Mountain Collective is now available for $449. The pass includes two days at each of the 17 partners plus a 50 percent discount on all additional days with no blackout dates. Passholders also receive two days at each Global Affiliate Destinations Chamonix (France) and Valle Nevado (Chile). Pricing for kids 12 and under is $99 USD for the 2018-19 season, making the Mountain Collective Pass an affordable option for families. 

In addition to being able to ski or ride at 17 destinations, extra benefits include exclusive lodging deals and a complimentary, one-year Protect Our Winters membership.
