Stowe Mountain Resort and Taos Ski Valley have joined the Mountain Collective that now includes skiing and riding access at ski areas in six U.S. states, Alberta and B.C., Canada, and Australia.
Stowe is the first ski area in the East to sign on to the partnership. “As the only Eastern resort among 11 distinctive and iconic destinations, Stowe offers a superlative overall experience both on and off the mountain to the most discerning skiers and riders traveling in this part of North America,” said Robert McEleney, president and CEO of Stowe.
In New Mexico, Gordon Briner, CEO of Taos, said Mountain Collective pass holders can look forward to experiencing the resort’s newly added Kachina Lift that tops out at more than 12,400 feet, as well as a newly renovated base area and ski school.
Other resorts making up the Collective include Sun Valley, Idaho; Alta and Snowbird, Utah; Aspen Snowmass, Colo.; Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine Village, Alberta; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Mammoth Mountain and Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, California; Thredbo, Australia; and Whistler Blackcomb, B.C.

Pass holders are also offered exclusive lodging deals and two bonus days at Valle Nevado, Chile, and the Hakuba Valley, Japan.
