Revelstoke joins Mountain Collective
The collection of destinations accessible via The Mountain Collective just grew to 14 with the addition of Revelstoke, British Columbia.
Graham Rennie, President of Revelstoke Mountain Resort, said he hopes to bridge Revelstoke with the other two Canadian resorts in the Collective—Whistler Blackcomb and the Banff-Lake Louise group—to offer pass holders “the opportunity to embark on the ultimate Canadian ski road trip,” which speaks volumes about who this pass is designed for.
The announcement comes a day after Vail Resorts, with its Epic Pass family of products, sprang the news of its planned acquisition of Whistler Blackcomb—the largest mountain resort in North America.
Whistler Blackcomb is currently included as one of the destinations on The Mountain Collective Pass, but this will be the last winter that Collective passholders can get their two days in at the beast of BC. The newest addition to Vail Resorts portfolio will be added to the Epic Pass for the 2017-18 season. That future colossus may well leave other season pass alliances looking to grow, too, in order to compete. It appears the Mountain Collective has responded first.
The Mountain Collective is a good deal for skiers who plan to visit multiple resorts. So lets assume you plan to ski all three Canadian member resorts and collect your free days plus the 50% discount on additional passes, you save. If you also visit a US resort your savings increase and help cover some additional trip costs. The resort offering is impressive and can lead to more powder for you, enjoy!
