Ski the world with Thredbo ‘Mountain Collective’ pass
IN A Southern Hemisphere ski season first, Thredbo Resort and New Zealand’s resorts (NZSki) of Coronet Peak and The Remarkables in Queenstown, plus Mt Hutt near Christchurch, are now connected by one inclusive lift pass, as NZSki becomes the newest member of The Mountain Collective.
The Mountain Collective is an unprecedented collaboration between the world’s best independent ski destinations in Canada, USA, Europe, Japan, South America, Australia and now New Zealand.
The addition of New Zealand will provide local skiers and riders with the best lift pass savings in the Southern Hemisphere by connecting Thredbo, Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Mt Hutt on one single pass.
Mountain Collective member resorts include: Aspen Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Sun Valley, AltaSnowbird, Mammoth, Stowe, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows and Taos in America. While Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine Village and Whistler Blackcomb make up the Canadian member resorts.
There are also three Mountain Collective affiliate resorts including: Hakuba Valley in Japan, Chamonix Mont-Blanc in France and Valle Nevado in Chile.
Existing premium season pass holders at Thredbo can now enjoy the benefit of a 50 per cent discount on single day lift passes at all full member Mountain Collective resorts in North America and resorts in New Zealand.
In addition to the benefits for Thredbo season pass holders there is also a Mountain Collective pass, which will allow Australian and New Zealand skiers and boarders to ride two days skiing at every other Mountain Collective resort around the globe - that’s 30 days of skiing all on one pass, including two days in Thredbo and two days at either of the NZSki areas.
Snowplayers are also being looked after at Thredbo this year with the resort giving people of all ages the opportunity to experience the snow without having to step into a pair of skis in the dedicated Snow Play Park.
Continuing the initiative of introducing more people to the snow, the Thredbo Snow Play Park, gives snow lovers the opportunity to frolic, roll around and throw a snowball or two.
The park is located in the village, at the Valley Terminal base station area and it will be open daily this winter.
