Season pass wars for the 2016/17 season have started. The Mountain Collective launched its new pass with a candy-coated treat: New Zealand destinations. While skiers and riders can get their value out of the Mountain Collective ski pass by staying in North America, it is now an enhanced deal for international travellers. It is the largest worldwide ski pass with destinations in the most countries.
For the 2016/17 season, the Mountain Collective sugared up the pass with two New Zealand destinations: Coronet Peak and The Remarkables. The pair sit outside Queenstown on the South Island where the ski season runs mid-June through mid-October. Coronet Peak, New Zealand’s first commercial ski area, gains popularity due to its close proximity to Queesntown, night skiing and ski touring options. Set in The Remarkables, the ski area by the same name soaks up views of iconic New Zealand mountains plus below to Lake Wakatipu, the country’s longest lake.

The Mountain Collective now includes 14 full-partner destinations. In North America, Stowe is the only ski resort on the East Coast. Western U.S. resorts include Telluride, Taos, Sun Valley, Alta-Snowbird, Aspen Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Mammoth Mountain and Squaw Valley-Alpine Meadows. Whistler Blackcomb, Revelstoke and Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine Village are the ski resorts in Canada. Coronet Peak-The Remarkables join Australia’s Thredbo to double South Pacific destinations.
