Rx From The BootDoctor: Mountain Collective Pass, 10 Things You Did Not Know
“10 things you probably didn’t know about the Mountain Collective pass” is one more installment in an ongoing series of curations from Penelope Gleason: “Rx from the BootDoctor.”
This story is a review of Telluride’s first year “in the club.”
“Bob’s ski mileage tracker is about to explode! He and I are planning a one-month road trip in April to as many of the Mountain Collective Pass areas as possible, starting with the ones that feature a BootDoctors’ store of course: Telluride and Taos. Need more convincing? Don’t just take me on my word. Check out this story from Freeskier, which spreads the love.”
(And stay tuned for the Gleason’s ski road trip reports starting in April.)
And this just in from Telski.

We don’t just like the Mountain Collective pass. We love it. Like, we really love it. In fact, we’re so darn psyched that we feel a serious urge to educate the whole world about it. Below, find 10 things you probably didn’t know about what must be the best ski pass ever, then thank us later because this knowledge is as good as gold.
1. It turns you into a world-traveler.

When you buy a Mountain Collective pass you get:
- 2 days at Alta, Utah
- 2 days at Snowbird, Utah
- 2 days at Snowbasin, Utah—New!
- 2 days at Aspen Snowmass, Colorado
- 2 days at Jackson Hole, Wyoming
- 2 days at Lake Louise, Alberta
- 2 days at Banff Sunshine, Alberta
- 2 days at Mammoth Mountain, California
- 2 days at Revelstoke, British Columbia
- 2 days at Coronet Peak/The Remarkables, New Zealand
- 2 days at Squaw Alpine, California
- 2 days at Sun Valley, Idaho
- 2 days at Taos, New Mexico
- 2 days at Telluride, Colorado
- 2 days at Sugarbush, Vermont—New!
- 2 days at Thredbo, Australia
If time allows, you could ski in Vermont, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho, California, British Columbia, Alberta, Australia and New Zealand—all in one season. And note that there are two new resorts included, Snowbasin and Sugarbush, that are well-worth checking out. Additionally, while passholders used to get two days between Alta and Snowbird, they now get two days at each resort. The same goes for Lake Louise and Sunshine Village; skiers once only got two days between the resorts and now they get two days at each. Total, this equates to 32 days of skiing all over the globe, up from 28 days on the 2016-17 pass. Mic drop.
2. Two words: Global Affiliates.
As if all the aforementioned destinations weren’t enough, the Mountain Collective is also partnered with three global affiliate resorts that every passholder can go tear up: Valle Nevado, Chile; Hakuba Valley, Japan; and last but not least, Chamonix, France. Simply show your Mountain Collective pass (or confirmation of purchase) at these resorts’ ticket centers, and they’ll each provide you with two days of skiing.
3. The price is ridiculously low.
Right now, for a limited time, the Mountain Collective pass is going for $399. So, you can ski all of those awesome places listed, above, and the pass will pay for itself in just a few days. Boom.
4. $1 kids passes. For real.

For a limited time, those who purchase a Mountain Collective pass can get a kids pass for $1… This is not a joke, you can actually spend 100 cents on a worldwide ski pass for the little ripper in your life. After that, additional kids passes are just $99 (also for a limited time), which is still an insanely good deal.
5. The savings never end…
