Mountain Collective Remains Option In Multi-Resort Pass Arena
Amidst the hoopla of Epic and Ikon pass marketing battles, the Mountain Collective -- the original multi-resort pass -- is still alive and thriving for skiers and snowboarders who can be on the move.
Now in its ninth season, the purchase of a Collective gives pass-holder two days at one of 22 resorts in the U.S., Canada and overseas. The lowest rate for next season is $469, a sale price that will surely rise as the year goes along.
For the upcoming 2020-21 season, the Collective will add four resorts to its portfolio, including Sugarloaf, Panorama, Grand Targhee and Chamonix, France -- bringing the number of U.S. resorts under the pass to 13.
Competition from mega-passes Epic and Ikon continue to cut into Mountain Collective sales, officials say, but they insist that their roster of "bucket list resorts at an affordable price point for a discerning group of skiers and riders."
Additional days beyond the two-day limit can be had for half the ticket window price, and the Collective includes a large number of lodging deals.
Resort under the Collective pass next season will be Alta, Arapahoe Basin, Aspen Snowmass, Banff Sunshine, Big Sky, Coronet Peak/The Remarkables (New Zealand), Grand Targhee, Jackson Hole, Lake Louise, Mammoth Mountain, Mt. Buller (Australia), Niseko United (Japan), Panorama, Revelstoke, Snowbird, Sugarbush, Sugarloaf, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Taos, Thredbo (Australia), and Valle Nevado (Chile).
