Stowe, Taos join ski resort alliance, offering pass for 2015-16 season

WHISTLER, B.C. — The Mountain Collective of ski resorts is expanding, and that could entice skiers and riders to travel farther afield in search of slopes this winter.

Stowe and Taos have announced they will join the group of leading resorts for the 2015-2016 season.

The collective offers a US$399 pass that includes two days of skiing or riding at each of 11 destinations, plus a 50 per cent discount on additional days.

Stowe, Vt., is the group’s first resort on the U.S. East Coast, while Taos extends the three-year-old program to New Mexico.

Earlier this year Sun Valley, Idaho, joined the alliance, as did Thredbo in Australia, its first international member.

The other Mountain Collective destinations include Whistler Blackcomb, B.C.; Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine, Alta.; AltaSnowbird, Utah; Aspen Snowmass, Colo.; Jackson Hole, Wyo.; Mammoth Mountain, Calif.; and Squaw Valley-Alpine Meadows, Calif.
