A fantastic option for Canadians and Americans, the Mountain Collective includes 25 different mountains that EACH offer you 2 FREE days of skiing & 50% off any day afterwards! Add that up for 50 days of free skiing (if you can afford to travel the globe skiing, lol)!! If you plan on travelling internationally this season, the MC is the pass for you as it includes many mountains in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Japan, and France. Pass holders also get special Mountain Collective lodging deals and there are NO BLACKOUT DATES.
Also, Marmot Basin here in Alberta has been added this season!Canadian
If you're an Albertan who plans on doing most of your skiing in AB and BC, this is a great option to have UNLIMITED days on the slopes. A SkiBig3 Season Pass provides unlimited access to SEVEN different resorts! On top of that, you receive 50% off at any Mountain Collective resort!
If you're looking to stay in the Bow Valley this winter but want unlimited skiing, this is the best option. It'll give you unlimited access to the Bow Valley as well as 50% off at all Mountain Collective locations with no blackouts!
Mountains: Lake Louise Ski Resort, Mt. Norquay Ski Resort, and Banff Sunshine Village.
Another great option for those who might want to be doing some travelling this winter.
