The Mountain Collective adds three new partners for 2013/2014 season
Last year, four world-class resorts (Aspen/Snowmass, Alta, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows and Jackson Hole) teamed up to offer an incredible deal to ride their amazing terrain at a discounted price along with a few other perks including discounted rates on lodging and 50% off the purchase of day tickets after the pass holder used their two free days.
Although a huge success, The Mountain Collective was met with some adversity in the snowboard industry as riders voiced their opinion on getting, once again, the short end of the stick as they could not ride at one of the three resorts, Alta.
But this year The Mountain Collective has listened and added three more world-class resorts to its list of shred destinations. New for 2013/2014, the Mountain Collective will offer riding at seven total resorts including last year’s Alta, Aspen/Snowmass, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows and Jackson Hole with the addition of Mammoth Mountain, Snowbird and Whistler Blackcomb.
Starting today, in a partnership with Liftopia, a limited number of Mountain Collective passes will be on sale at last year’s price of $349, $229 for children 12 and under.
So what does this pass include you ask? Well, you’ll have access to seven resorts boasting over 30,000 acres of terrain, 186 lifts and 12 total mountains. The pass offers you two free days at each of the seven resorts, and after you’ve used those free days up you can purchase a day pass at any of those six resorts at 50% off with no blackout days. In addition to the deep discounts to shred, The Mountain Collective offers pass holders exclusive lodging deals throughout the season.
“The Mountain Collective successfully captured the imagination of mountain travel enthusiasts looking for variety, flexibility and affordable access to the best independent resorts in the world,” said Christian Knapp, vice president of marketing, Aspen Skiing Company. “Adding these three world-class mountains makes this the ultimate dream pass, and only serves to enhance the value skiers and riders will enjoy from The Mountain Collective.”
