SAM Magazine—Aspen, Colo., March 3, 2022—The Mountain Collective will include 22 destinations for the 2022-23 season, as Snowbasin, Utah, and Sun Valley, Idaho, return to the group, and Mammoth and Palisades Tahoe, Calif., and Sugarbush, Vt., withdraw.
“We are excited to rejoin Mountain Collective starting with the 2022-23 season,” said Bruce Fery, CEO of Grand America Hotels & Resorts, parent company of Sun Valley and Snowbasin.
“We could not be happier to welcome Sun Valley and Snowbasin back to the Mountain Collective family,” said Todd Burnette, program director. “Adding these two incredible resorts to our roster of 22 independent bucket list destinations further solidifies the Mountain Collective Pass as a great option for discerning skiers and riders around the world.”
The shuffling of the resorts comes as Sun Valley and Snowbasin end their partnership with Vail Resorts' Epic Pass and join the roster of Ikon Pass partners as well as the Mountain Collective. At the same time, Alterra-owned Mammoth, Palisades Tahoe, and Sugarbush are now strictly Ikon Pass resorts.
The 2022-23 edition of the Mountain Collective, on sale March 15, will cost $539 for adults (up $40 from 2021-22), $439 for young adults (ages 13-18 at time of purchase), and $149 for kids (12 and under at time of purchase.) As in the past, the pass includes two days of skiing or riding with no blackout dates at each of the 22 partners (44 total days), a 50 percent discount on all additional days, lodging discount offers and for a limited time, a third bonus day offer at the resort of the passholders’ choice. Current Mountain Collective passholders received special limited-time renewal pricing today.
