Mountain Collective

So we know - like eryone knows about this pass, but it's pretty tits. The Mountain Collective just added two resorts, but two resorts left to join The Epic Pass. The resorts added to the Collective are Sugarbush (VT which you know we adore) and Snowbasin (UT). The resorts that became part of Vail - Whistler (BC) and Stowe (VT). The Mountain Collective just went on sale for next season. It's $399. Here's what you get: 2 days at Aspen/Snowmass (CO), 2 days at Banff/Sunshine, 2 days at Jackson (WY), 2 days at Lake Louise (AB), 2 days at Mammoth (CA), 2 days at Revelstoke (BK), 2 days at Snowbasin (UT), 2 days at Snowbird (UT), 2 days at Squaw/Alpine (CA), 2 days at Sugarbush (VT), 2 days at Sun Valley (ID), 2 days at Taos (NM), & 2 days at Telluride (CO). They even throw in four days in the southern hemisphere at Coronet Peak/The Remarkables (NZ) and Thredbo (AU). At the moment the Mountain Collective is also giving you an extra day at a resort of your choice. With this pass, you break even after visiting two hills pretending that lift tickets are $100 a pop (most are more). If you've got a season pass at any of these places you get 50% off lift tickets when you visit other Mountain Collective resorts. Pretty sweet indeed.
