Everyone has their own preference when it comes to how they get their shred on during winter. Some snowboarders prefer to only ride their home mountain and form a tight-knit “locals’ community”. Others take one big seven-day trip to a foreign land once a year. And still, others go for a more explorative snowboard season, tracking vertical feet at as many different resorts around the globe as they can.

Sound like you?

Then read on to discover why you NEED The Mountain Collective Pass. You’re going to love where it takes you.
