After joining as an affiliate member last year, Niseko United has now joined a group of the world’s most prestigious ski resorts as a full member resort of The Mountain Collective pass for the 2018/19 season. The Pass is now available for purchase for a limited time at $449 USD.
Niseko United now stands alongside names like Aspen Snowmass, Banff Sunshine, Coronet Peak, Jackson Hole, Lake Louise, Mammoth, Revelstoke and Thredbo as the only resort in Asia in the Mountain Collective alliance of 17 iconic destinations.
The Mountain Collective Pass includes two days of complimentary skiing or riding at each of its 17 partner resorts across five countries (34 days total), plus a 50 percent discount on all additional days with no blackout dates. Passholders also receive two free days at each Global Affiliate Destination, Chamonix (France) and Valle Nevado (Chile).
Colin Hackworth, President of Niseko United resort Hanazono, said, “The four resorts of Niseko United are delighted to be joining the Mountain Collective as a full partner. The fabled powder of Niseko awaits all Mountain Collective riders dreaming of their opportunity to visit one of the most storied deep snow resorts on the planet.”
With the additions of Montana’s Big Sky Resort and Niseko United as full partners, the 2018/19 Mountain Collective pass now has the strongest roundup of resorts and skiable days since the pass’s inception.
