Mountain Collective 2013/2014 Limited Sale - Page 3

post #61 of 85

The bad news is the MC pass just SOLD OUT for 2013-14. (2 days since my warning post!) eek.gif

The good news is their website says MCP will be offered again?  But at what price?

http://www.themountaincollective.com/

 

This is starting to look like Rolling Stones or Burningman tickets.frown.gif

 

Alta-Bird ticket price is a lot more than individual area tickets so if only the combo pass is allowed

then 50% off is not a great deal.  Both areas have so much terrain that it is highly unlikely to be a need

to ski both in one day.  I could easily spend 2 days at Alta and a week at the Bird. rolleyes.gif

I hope, as we hear, they allow individual area use.

Anyone know if the Aspen part of the MC pass allows a choice of all 4 mountains at Aspen?

A ticket purchased at any Aspen mountain is good at all 4, so the answer is yes.

The GF called a few days ago and just asked, they sold her a pass over the phone.

I called them today. While they didn't offer to sell me a pass (?!), the rep on the phone said that passes would "definitely" go on sale again "in the fall".

Good news is, when my Mammoth Pass was renewed in April, for $100 extra I got this deal too.  Really looking forward to a few more days at Squaw/Alpine and Alta/Bird this coming season.

What's more important for skiers is that you get the Alta/Bird ticket.  biggrin.gif

 

FAQ posted March 13, 2013

https://themountaincollective.zendesk.com/entries/23340111-Which-AltaSnowbird-ticket-do-I-get-

 

Q) Which AltaSnowbird ticket do I get?

A) The free and 50% off tickets at AltaSnowbird will both be the AltaSnowbird Interconnect ticket each day, which allow you to ski at both resorts all day long. Note: snowboarding is not allowed at Alta.

There was a clarification about how the MCP works for Alta/Snowbird. An Alta/Bird day ticket is $105 for 2013-14 so that means $52.50/day for additional days.

FAQ comments posted April 4 and July 3, 2013


* Comment question 4/4/13:
Do both the 2 "free" and the 50% off unlimited dual mountain tickets include the tram as well, and if so, will the 50% off be calculated at Alta's or Snowbird's individual price as they were different this past season, or at the dual mountain price, considering the fact that Snowbird's individual price is different again with or without the tram!?
* Comment answer 7/3/2013:
Yes, the free and 50% lift tickets do include the tram. The 50% is calculated at the dual mountain price.

post #70 of 85

Just got an email from the Mountain Collective announcing a partnership with Protect Our Winters (POW).  In it was the following quite: "2013-2014 passes go back on sale Tuesday, August 13 at just $379 for adults and $239 for children 12 and under."

Interesting . . . going after the traveling family market now.

Just BTW and for the sake of bumping the thread -- today's the day that they're back on sale. Just picked mine up. Now I just have to decide which car I'm going to be driving from western PA back to everywhere relevant...

bump this awesome bucket list

post #75 of 85

Nice Bump.  

This is still a great deal and something that Bears should consider if they're going to any of the gatherings this coming season. 

post #76 of 85

The status indicator on the MCP website slipped to Limited Stock a few days ago.

post #77 of 85

Yep, sold out a second time.

 

But they're back and price has crept up to $399.

Getting a bit harder to justify unless you ski a lot at an area such as Aspen or Snowbird

that has high season pass prices.

Sure would be nice to ski each of the resorts at their peak.
Already notched Aspen.

So, did you just do the 2 included days or also some additional half price days? AND how was the skiing? How much of the mountain(s) was open?What kind of coverage?

 

You might have guessed that I too have a MCP.  Aspen is the only resort that I am not sure I will bag as it depends on some storm chasing decisions after the Utah Gathering.

post #80 of 85

Bagged my first pass at Jackson Hole last weekend.  The ticket counter person was a newb - I had to explain the MCP in detail.  I had to fill out an additional form to allow the 1/2 price passes to charge automatically to my credit card.  Last year Alta was the weak link - maybe this year its JHMR?

I got mine "activated" at WB a couple of weeks ago, and everything worked well. HOWEVER, it seems like you have to get a new one at each of the resorts, not being able to just use the original one for all of the hills. Can anyone confirm that?

That's my understanding. I had to contact the service center and get the recept again. I've printed 5 or 6 copies to use at the resorts I hope to visit (got one day at Aspen already).

That's what I remember reading for last season.  Especially because not all the resorts were using RFID.

I had a THR last year and wasn't sure a $1600 full Aspen pass would pay. I popped for a MCP and will storm chase, plus supplement with cat/heli/sled skiing.

I linked the pass to a CC. I skied five days and it worked flawlessly. You do have to go into each partner, which is a pita.
They should share data and make it seamless.

Aspen resorts are close to 100%, coverage is great and the skiing is phenomenal!

Got the AltaBird pass yesterday. Using the ticket office by the Wildcat lift was the way to go. Snuck over into Mineral Basin for a few runs, but spent most of the day at Alta.
