The Mountain Collective is back, this time with added features including a new TEEN Pass. The multi resort pass has grown from four resort partners in the debut 2012/2013 season to 23 resorts for this coming tenth season.

Last season marked the addition of five new resort partners including Sugarloaf, Maine; Panorama, British Columbia; Sun Peaks, British Columbia, Grand Targhee, Wyoming and the Chamonix region of France.

The Mountain Collective pass includes two days of riding at all partner resorts and 50% off additional days at each resort with skiing in Japan, Canada, USA, France, New Zealand, Australia and Chile.

For USD$499 (around AU$640) or US$129 for kids under 12, you could be schussing the slopes of Alta, Arapahoe Basin, Aspen Snowmass, Banff Sunshine, Big Sky, Chamonix (France) 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, Sun Peaks, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Taos, Thredbo (Australia) and Valle Nevado (Chile.).

New this year is the TEEN Pass, available for $399 USD (ages 13-18 at time of purchase). All Mountain Collective passes includes two days of skiing or riding with no blackout dates at each of the 23 partners (46 total days), 50 percent discount on all additional days and for a limited time, a third bonus day offer at the resort of the pass holders’ choice.

The “No Questions Asked” refund guarantee is back again to give you confidence in Covid times.

As travel restrictions related to the Covid pandemic are beginning to lift, The Mountain Collective is hopeful that pass holders will have the opportunity to visit as many destinations as possible next season.

However, to provide pass holders with peace of mind, the “No Questions Asked” refund guarantee returns, allowing pass holders a full refund upon request any time prior to August 31, 2021.
