With the winter season in South America, Australia and New Zealand in full-swing and summer drawing to a close in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s about time to dust off those skis, make sure those boots still fit and wash that neon one-piece your uncle gave you so it’s ready for opening day.
However, if you’re like a majority of skiers, you live in an urban environment, somewhere other than a mountain town, and have to travel to take turns wearing said onesie once the snowy season arrives. If you’re nodding you’re head, saying to yourself, “Yup, that sounds like me,” consider the Mountain Collective pass for this upcoming season.
Below, we’ve outlined 11 things you need to know about the Mountain Collective program and why it’s an ideal season pass solution for the travel-oriented resort skier.

Yes, what he said. 👇🏾 Hit the link in our bio to learn more and/or submit your comment TODAY. #Repost @jimmy_chin ・・・ I’ve experienced many of my most inspiring, moving and humbling moments in the epic landscapes of our national parks and national monuments. Besides their intrinsic value, these are the places we play in, share experiences that shape us, find adventure, find peace. Under the new administration, twenty-seven national monuments are under review with the potential for these one-of-kind places to be left unprotected or inaccessible to the American public. If you care to protect these wild places for future generations, for your kids, please take two minutes and hit the link in my bio. It would be great if you considered making your voice heard on why these places are so important to you. Today is the last day of the commenting period so don’t put it off! Thanks for considering… #keeppubliclandspublic 📸@andy_bardon
