Another independent ski resort will join forces with a team that includes Aspen-Snowmass in the Mountain Collective program.
Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine in Alberta is the latest addition to the collaboration. The other participants, besides Aspen Skiing Co.’s four resorts, are Jackson Hole in Wyoming, Mammoth Mountain and Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows in California and Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia.
The Mountain Collective pass is now on sale for $389. It includes two days of skiing or snowboarding at each of the seven destinations, plus a 50 percent discount on all additional days. There are no blackout dates. Pricing for kids 12 and younger was reduced this year to $99 to make the pass more attractive for families.
The Mountain Collective Pass grants access to 15 mountains at the seven resorts. They combine for more than 38,000 acres of terrain and 212 lifts. Passes are available online at www.mountaincollective.com.
Other benefits available to Mountain Collective passholders include exclusive lodging deals and a complimentary one-year Protect Our Winters (ProtectOur Winters.org) membership.
