7 Reasons why a Mountain Collective pass in Canada just makes sense

Whether you want to ski as many resorts as possible, or you just want to make your money go further, the Mountain Collective pass in Canada has a strong reputation for good reason. It’s a smart choice for skiers and snowboarders anywhere in North America, but in Banff National Park, the perks are going even further.


In short: the Mountain Collective pass gets you 2 days at 25 different dream destinations, for a total of 50 days of skiing and riding, including 4 days in Banff National Park. Two days at Banff Sunshine, two days at Lake Louise Ski Resort, and 50% off additional days at Mt. Norquay.


Nice deal, right? You can learn more about how to buy a Mountain Collective pass or keep reading for more details on why this pass makes great sense when skiing in Banff National Park.


1. Double your ski days


While most Mountain Collective destinations just get 2 days, in Banff National Park you get 4 days of skiing and riding - 2 at Banff Sunshine and 2 at Lake Louse Ski Resort. Plus, you can have additional ski days at Mt. Norquay for just 50% of the window rate (the SkiBig3 window rate).

2. Lower pass prices pre-season


Early birds really do get the worm with Mountain Collective pass in Canada. When you buy your Mountain Collective pass early, you can lock in unbeatable pre-season rates that can take the cost of skiing and riding at each destination resort to less than $100 a day.

3. Get your money’s worth in just a few days


The Mountain Collective pass gets you a huge 50 ski days, across 25 ski resorts, over 5 continents. With five resorts located in close proximity: Banff Sunshine, Lake Louise Ski Resort, Panorama, Marmot Basin and Revelstoke - it's easy to do a Western Canadian Road Trip to knock off 5 resorts at once!


Realistically, it’s unlikely for most people to ski all of the 25 member resorts in one season. However, the beauty of the pass is that it’s easy to maximize its value. If you get pre-season pricing, you’ll get your money’s worth after skiing just 4 or 5 days in Banff National Park. Tag on a trip to Revelstoke, Panorama or Marmot Basin and you're in the clear.
