Four world-class resorts team up to create The Mountain Collective pass

Comments by Jonathan Glass/

After a not so impressive snow season last year and ticket prices surpassing $100 per day, it’s tough to justify shredding without knowing what the conditions will be this winter. With that in mind, four major resorts have teamed up to create The Mountain Collective, a creative way to help get you shredding without breaking the bank.

In a partnership with Liftopiathemountaincollective.com brings you some of the best riding at four world-class resorts including: Aspen/Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows and Alta, for the low price of $349.

Here are the details: You get two free days at each of the four resorts, after you use up your two days get unlimited 50% off day passes all season long. Also, receive up to 25% off lodging at the four locations so you always have a place to stay.

Collectively The Mountain Collective pass grants access to eight mountains with over 16,000 acres of terrain. "This is a completely new concept for a ski pass and gives winter enthusiasts the freedom to access some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world, “ said Christian Knapp, vice president of marketing, Aspen Skiing Company. “There's been an incredible spirit of collaboration amongst the partners to bring this historic alliance and innovative new product to life.”

We know what you’re thinking; do us boarders get some sort of compensation for not being able to ride at Alta? Unfortunately we don't. But, if you head up to the ticket window at Alta with your Mountain Collective pass you can score a $33 lift ticket to Snowbird, which is better than nothing. 

Don’t wait to long, this pass deal will only be available at its current price of $349 ($229 for kids) until November 19, 2012.
