Who qualifies for the Mountain Collective reciprocity program?
- Discounted lift tickets are for the premier pass holders or employees of each Mountain Collective resort*. The lift tickets are non-transferable.
* Because there is not a “Sugarloaf” premier pass, but rather, Sugarloaf is included on the New England pass (which also includes Sunday River and Loon Mountain), reciprocity is granted to Platinum and Gold New England pass holders.
* Reciprocity is granted to SkiBig3 pass holders but not to premier pass holders of just Banff Sunshine or just Lake Louise. Employees of Sunshine and Lake Louise can receive 50% off of the 1-day in-resort rate lift tickets at every other Mountain Collective resort*
When can a pass holder use their reciprocity benefit:
- There are no blackout dates.
- Northern hemisphere 2023-24 passholders have reciprocity for the Southern hemisphere winter 2024 season (June – Oct. 2024).
- Southern hemisphere 2023 passholders have eligibility for reciprocity at Northern hemisphere resorts for the 2023-24 season.
How many lift tickets can a pass holder purchase?
- There is no limit to the number of discounted tickets each passholder may purchase, but only 1 ticket may be purchased per day.
What is the 1-day lift ticket that is discounted?
- The 50%-off lift tickets are offered on each resort’s 1-day lift ticket price that corresponds to the pass holder’s age/date-of-birth.
- For example: if a 16 year old is considered an adult visitor at a resort, even though they are a teen pass holder for the Mountain Collective, they will be sold a 1-day adult lift ticket at 50%-off.
- Exception: pass holders visiting Banff Sunshine or Lake Louise are sold a 1-day SkiBig3 lift ticket that corresponds to the pass holder’s Mountain Collective age category.
