The Mountain Collective Pass is a ski and snowboard pass offering free and discounted access to some of the best winter destinations in the world. For the 2021/22 seaso there a total of 23 participating ski resorts across seven countries and five continents.
The Mountain Collective Pass does not offer multiple options like some of its competitors like the Ikon or Epic passes. Passholders receive two free days at each of the 23 member resorts. The two free days applies to each destination, rather than each resort for multi-resort destinations, including Aspen-Snowmass, Squaw Valley-Alpine Meadows and Mammoth Mountain, as well as New Zealand's Coronet Peak/The Remarkables.
Skiers and snowboarders who are planning several shorter vacations to multiple Mountain Collective Pass destinations will benefit most from this access pass. The price of a Mountain Collective Pass is equivalent to just three or four full-day lift tickets at many of the member ski resorts. At $589 (USD) for adults, $489 (USD) for teens, 13 to 18 years, and $169 (USD) for kids 12 and under, the pass will pay for itself with approximately six days of skiing at a single resort. The Mountain Collective Pass website also features road-trip suggestions to help you plan your adventure.
However, if one of the Mountain Collective Pass resorts is your home resort and you plan to ski or board a lot of days, you might be better off with a season pass for that resort. Most season passes at individual Mountain Collective destinations include 50% off lift tickets to other Mountain Collective partner destinations. Keep in mind that many single-resort season passes cost well over $1,000, so you’ll want to estimate the number of days you realistically plan to ski and decide if travel is in the cards for you this season. Do the math before committing one way or the other.
As an example: Last season if you planned to ski Alta and Snowbird, which are just five miles apart in Utah’s Cottonwood Canyon, for five or six days this winter, the Mountain Collective Pass is a great deal. Online rates for full-day tickets were $119 at Alta and $145 at Snowbird, so two days of skiing at each resort would have costed you $528, compared to the $489 you would have payed for a Mountain Collective Pass.
Fifty percent off all additional days at the collective destinations, plus a bonus third day at destination of your choice (while supplies last).
Pass-holders have access to special discounts of up to 25 percent off at select lodging. Black out dates apply.
Premium season pass-holders at most participating resorts will automatically receive 50 percent off regular single-day lift tickets at any of the other Mountain Collective destinations. Exclusions apply for Squaw Valley - Alpine Meadows and most Mammoth Resort pass holders.
Pass-holders receive a complementary one-year Protect Our Winters (POW) membership.
