March in Sun Valley is coming in like a lion with significant snowfall falling over the past week and more predicted through the weekend. The month will also not go out like the proverbial lamb, because the Toyota U.S. Alpine Championships, a world-class event, is coming to Baldy’s storied slopes from March 21 to 26. You won’t want to miss a minute of this celebration of amazing ski racing and mountain culture.

Skiing & Riding
There is a new, exciting way to enjoy Sun Valley’s storied slopes for the 2015-16 season, as well as some of the other most tempting runs in the west. Sun Valley Resort announced this week that it will be the eighth prestigious destination resort to join what is known as the Mountain Collective.
Make sure you log onto the Mountain Collective website to take advantage of a pretty fabulous offer for next season’s skiing and riding season. Buying a Mountain Collective pass is a rare opportunity to ski some of everyone’s “bucket list” destinations at a steep discount.
"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, this summer, 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.”

Sun Valley joins Alta-Snowbird, Aspen-Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Lake Louise/Sunshine Village/Norquay, Mammoth, Whistler Blackcomb and Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows in this elite club. For a fee that starts at $369, participants get to enjoy two days at each of the above resorts during the 2015-16 season. A free additional third day at any one of the resorts is part of the spring sale. You also get 50 percent off other consecutive days of skiing after you use the two that are part of the deal.
“Joining Mountain Collective is great for our local, regional, national and international guests and is an amazing way to explore different mountains and experiences,” said Jack Sibbach, Marketing Manager at Sun Valley.

The participating resorts also offer Mountain Collective pass holders great lodging and other deals to enhance vacations. Often, local lodging is offered at least 25 percent off, making the experience even harder to say no to. To cap it all off, there are no blackout dates (for skiing/riding only).
Buying early is recommended as pricing is tiered and this very lowest joining price won’t last long.
Mountain Collective passes are purchased through Liftopia.

I know that the cost of skiing at other resorts when I already have a Sun Valley pass has kept me from exploring other ski areas. This pass is a built-in incentive to get out there and try to something new. It will also entice people to visit our amazing winter playground.
“Being a part of Mountain Collective will bring new visitors to Sun Valley to enjoy our world-class skiing and riding and everything that makes us unique as America’s first destination ski resort,” Sibbach said. “We are very excited to welcome them here.”
