The More the Merrier: Mountain Collective Pass On Sale Now

Though the hot August sun is shining and summer sports are at the peak of their enjoyment, today is the day to think snow. This week, Mountain Collective Passes went back on sale and now is the time to secure savings on one of the best ways to ski or ride North America’s premiere winter destinations, including Sun Valley.

It’s hard to believe, but winter is right around the corner and now is the time to think about your skiing and riding bucket list with the Mountain Collective – an experience that includes Sun Valley

Last March, Sun Valley announced that during the 2015-16 there would be a new, exciting way to 
enjoy Baldy’s storied slopes, as well as some of the other most tempting runs around. As the eighth prestigious destination resort to be a part of the Mountain Collective, Sun Valley Resort joined Alta-Snowbird, Aspen-Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Lake Louise/Sunshine Village/Norquay, Mammoth, Thredbo, Whistler Blackcomb and Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows in this elite club. In more exciting news on the Mountain Collective front, it was announced this week that Stowe in Vermont and Taos in New Mexico will also be part of this year’s available destinations. Buying a Mountain Collective pass is a rare opportunity to ski some of everyone’s “bucket list” destinations at a steep discount.

Ride and ski in Sun Valley this winter with a Mountain Collective Pass – a fantastic deal for a fantastic experience

For a fee that starts at $399 for adults and $99 for children (while supplies last), participants get to enjoy two days at each of the above resorts during the 2015-16 season. You also get 50 percent off other consecutive days of skiing after you use the two that are part of the deal. The best part? No blackouts dates for your time on the slopes. Children 12 and under qualify for the kids’ rate.

"We are thrilled that Sun Valley is joining the seven world-class ski resorts who have made the Mountain Collective so successful," said Tim Silva, Vice President and General Manager, Sun Valley Resort.  “Sun Valley, with its unique combination of history, ski lore and innovation, will be a great addition to the roster. Recognized for its commitment to outstanding guest service, Sun Valley offers uncrowded slopes, exceptional off-mountain adventures for the whole family and a newly renovated Lodge with a 20,000 square foot spa and fitness facility.  We look forward to welcoming Mountain Collective pass holders to Sun Valley, for an authentic small town-big mountain experience.”

 Whistler’s steep slopes are part of the Mountain Collective experience

All in, pass holders can enjoy access to 21 mountains with more than 43,400 acres of terrain and 271 lifts and an unmatched reputation for snow quality, quantity and steeps.

The participating resorts also offer Mountain Collective pass holders great lodging and other incentives to enhance vacations. Often, local lodging is offered at least 25 percent off, making the experience even harder to say no to. 

Buying early is recommended as pricing is tiered and this low price won’t last long.
Mountain Collective passes are purchased through Liftopia. Click on www.MountainCollective.com for more information or to buy passes.

Taos joined the Mountain Collective, as well, this year, providing skiers and riders with even more reasons to get out there

Don’t forget, Sun Valley Winter Passes are also currently on sale. Buy now and take advantage of the season’s best pricing with early bird rates through September 7, 2015. Installment plans are also available.

Enjoy this glorious summer, but start thinking snow!
