Shortly after dropping the bomb that they’d be joining the Ikon Pass, Arapahoe Basin, CO announced yesterday that they will be joining The Mountain Collective too.
“Arapahoe Basin is pleased to partner with The Mountain Collective,” Henceroth said in a news release. “Skiers and snowboarders who are looking for a taste of adventure at some of the world’s most challenging resorts will love the high-alpine, big-mountain experience and laid-back vibe that A-Basin has to offer.”
A-Basin chief operating officer Alan Henceroth made the announcement yesterday that “The Legend” will be joining The Mountain Collective as well. The Mountain Collective is an international alliance of 18 resorts, including the four mountains of Aspen Snowmass. The pass costs $489, compared to Ikon passes ($1,049 and $749) and Epic passes ($939 and $699).
With this deal, Arapahoe Basin season-pass-holders will be able to ski at other Mountain Collective mountains for 50 percent off the ticket window price. Mountain Collective pass-holders will get two free days at Arapahoe, along with the other 17 resorts in the alliance.
The Mountain Collective includes Alta and Snowbird in Utah, Lake Louise and Banff Sunshine in Canada, Jackson Hole in Wyoming, and Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows and Mammoth Mountain in California.
