    Interesting in that you can now carry forward any unused Southern Hemisphere ski days into winter 2021. 5 or 7 days split for Oz and NZ plus northern hemisphere 20/21 winter.

    Doing some sums

    I'm intrigued by the new Session Pass giving 4 days at various locations and no unlimited days. Depending on the use case, for the Southern Hemisphere users this may be better than a Mountain Collective pass? Especially if it also gives 50% off for additional days.

    But from my reading it’s just 4 days skiing in total? Not such a great deal. No extra benefits.

    So USD100 per day. Not 4 days at each location.

    And the Ikon doesn’t have any deals for extra days, you get discounted friend and family passes, which can’t be used by you. I’m waiting to see if MC comes out with an early bird deal.

    You aren't the only one who thought that. :)

    What's catching people's attention is the $150 add-on to Ikon Base to get days at Aspen and Jackson Hole.

    I think this is the plan for me.

    Was awesome at Niseko this year. 2 free days and 2 days at 50%

    Updating this thread. My spreadsheet indicates Ikon > MC for our circumstances.

    Anyone used the payment plan and also skied the current Aus winter? The last payment isn't taken until September, by which time the Thredbo and possibly NZ days will have been used. Seems odd that it would be allowed.

    Quick email reply
    Thank you for contacting the Season Pass Contact Center. Yes, you can use the pass on the payment plan. You can also use the 20/21 pass the summer of 2020 or 2021.
    Sold.
