Bonus days and bonus rates

If you are looking for a variety of world-class resorts to ski in with no blackout dates, then the Mountain Collective may be happening for you. As a 2022-23 pass holder, you’ll get 2 days at 22 resorts and 50% off each additional day at collective destinations.

The adult pass price is currently $539. And if you pick up that pass before too long, you’ll also receive a bonus day three at the resort of your choice.

The Indy Pass, which is back for its fourth year, is an affordable alternative to Epic, Ikon, and Mountain Collective passes. This year’s base pass starts at $279 for adults. For $100 more, you can get the Indy+ pass, which eliminates blackout dates.

Both options give pass holders 2 days in over 50 independent ski areas. If you use the 2 days allocated to you, pass holders can add more to qualify for reduced rates.

Fortunately, the Indy Pass returns with the exact price for the 21/22 season, at least for now. On May 1 and 17, prices will increase on their pass offers. However, there is no current indication of how much that might be.
