    I've taken advantage of this great pass a number of times now and it just got better.
    Grand Targhee adds to a great cluster of the best US ski hills easily accessed out of Salt Lake City. There's Alta/Snowbrid/Jackson Hole/Grand Targhee/Big Sky in one general area. There's also heaps of other stuff to see in the area too with the highlight being Yellowstone.

    Panorama in BC is a nice addition because it forms another cluster with Revelstoke and Lake Louise and Sunshine. Best used in spring I would think.

    And there's a little place called Chamonix that has been added too.

    Yep i got it the first year. And last year got it on top of my epic pass.

    Used it at Thredbo, NZ and Japan. (not as many days as i would have liked due to ACL injury)

    Last year I got three days at Thredbo and two at Niseko, Alta, Snowbird, Jackson, Big Sky and Aspen. 15 days at world class ski hills for $400 odd aud. Bargain of the century.

    No 'at par' deal for Aussies this year though.:(

    Anyone know what the adult day ticket pricing is likely to be this year? Assume it will be up slightly with the new Gondy in action.

    Will have to revisit the spreadsheet. Might be worth getting both. Or one for the eldest kid.

    A great deal.
    The $150 for a child is a steal.

    How does the Mountain Collective pass 50% off deal interact with Bullers variable day pricing?
    I (hopefully) will get 3+ days at Buller, but typically go midweek and don't pay the full $150 day pass rate, which changes the value significantly.

    the discount is on walk up day rate. So whatever it costs at the ticket office on the day.

    Me neither, just not in '21.
    A European adventure awaits I think.

    Is there a thread comparing each of the multi-mountain passes? I'm currently thinking about what to do for next North America season (promotional emails coming through now).

    Pretty low risk purchase for USD326, if the trans Tasman bubble opens up, I'll definitely go for it.

    G'day,
    The Smith Family have been taking full advantage of the at par link nezumi added above. Magnificent value. We've been to Norquay, Sunshine, Sun Peaks and Revelstoke.
    (We've switched to epic pass for Kicking Horse, Fernie and Kimberley this week until new year).
    Revelstoke was excellent for a family with heaps of snow up top but a download on the gondola required. The ski out would have been tough as tired legs were worn out by days end.
    To be kidlets progress was good to see, daughter did first black diamond run and son did his first hike into the north bowl. Wife enjoyed easier switchback green runs and loved watching the kids cut the corners and grab some untouched snow through the trees.
    We had the 3 days on the pass here which is excellent value.
