We all fantasize about embarking on multiple snowboard trips each winter or checking off as many world-class resorts as possible in a single season. Since the debut of the Mountain Collective Pass in 2012, powder chasing across the globe has become a whole lot easier, and a few noteworthy updates make the 2017-18 offering juicier than ever.

Newcomer resorts Sugarbush and Snowbasin are joining the pass as full partners for the upcoming season. Sugarbush, located in Vermont’s Mad River Valley, features over 4,000 skiable acres spread across six peaks (including the iconic steep skiing off of Castlerock), making it one of the largest resorts in New England. Located an hour’s drive from Salt Lake City, Utah, Snowbasin serves up over 3,000 acres and 3,000 vertical feet; it’s also set to debut its new high-speed Wildcat six-pack chair (replacing an old, slow triple), which will dramatically enhance mid-mountain access.

The Mountain Collective has amazing statistics.

Also new for 2017-2018, Mountain Collective passholders will receive twice the amount of days on-mountain at destinations previously packaged together; this includes Snowbird, in Utah’s Little Cottonwood Canyon, and Sunshine Village and Lake Louise, in Alberta’s Banff National Park. Pass-holders can now look forward to enjoying two days at each of these world-class resorts.

The pass, which costs $489, gets you two days of riding at each of these participating partners: Aspen Snowmass, Sunshine Village, Coronet Peak/The Remarkables (NZL), Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Lake Louise Resort, Mammoth Mountain, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Snowbasin Resort, Snowbird, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Sugarbush Resort, Sun Valley, Taos Ski Valley, Telluride Ski Resort and Thredbo Alpine Village (AUS). The pass also provides two days of skiing, but not the full range of benefits, at global resorts like Valle Nevado in Chile, Chamonix in France, and Hakuba Valley and Niseko United in Japan.

The Mountain Collective - in statistics

With the addition of Sugarbush and Snowbasin, and the dividing of the Little Cottonwood Canyon and Banff National Park, The Mountain Collective pass provides 32 days at their full-partner locations. With 50% off lift tickets for additional days (beyond the two included at each resort) spent at Mountain Collective destinations, special lodging deals of up to 25% off and zero blackout dates, a complimentary one-year Protect Our Winters membership, and $99 passes for children 12 and under, this pass is tough to beat. If you’re anything like us, you likely spend the months of August, September, and October mapping out your desired worldwide snowboarding adventures. This could very well be your ticket to turning those dreams into reality.
