Ski Alta and more with the new Mountain Collective Pass
It’s a good time to be a skier. More and more ski resorts are coming up with creative ways to entice us with discounted lift tickets, but the new Mountain Collective Pass is a whole other animal. The Mountain Collective is an alliance of four western independent ski resorts who have come together to offer a wicked-cool season pass. With the Mountain Collective Pass, you get two days of skiing at Alta, Jackson Hole, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, and Aspen/Snowmass. In addition, once all your passes are used, you get unlimited 50% off day passes at all four resorts for the rest of the season. In addition, pass holders get 25% off lodging.
Lucky for us here in Utah, Alta is on the list, so if you become a Mountain Collective member, you’ll get to ski Alta all year long for half-off. I’d say the pass is worth buying for that reason alone!
Okay, sounds pretty awesome, right? But you’ll have to be one hell of a ski traveler to go to each and every destination in order to eek out the value of this pass. But if you have the means, or are a powderhound who regularly chases storms seeking the deepest powder no matter when or where it is, then the Mountain Collective pass is right up your alley. Just think of it as your ticket to the biggest resort on earth with 16,005 acres, 104 lifts and 8 mountains in 4 states.
The Mountain Collective Pass is $349 for adults, and $229 for children 12 and under. But hurry, the pass must be purchased before November 19, 2012.
