Arapahoe Basin wasn’t done making news last week with the announcement that it will be joining the Ikon Pass roster of resorts this coming season after leaving the Epic Pass.

On Tuesday, A-Basin chief operating officer Alan Henceroth announced that “The Legend” will join The Mountain Collective as well. The Mountain Collective is an international alliance of 18 resorts, including the four mountains of Aspen Snowmass. Its season pass of $489 is considerably cheaper than Ikon passes ($1,049 and $749) and Epic passes ($939 and $699).

With this deal, Arapahoe Basin season-pass-holders will be able to ski at other Mountain Collective mountains for 50 percent off the ticket window price. Mountain Collective pass-holders will get two free days at Arapahoe, along with the other 17 resorts in the alliance.

“Arapahoe Basin is pleased to partner with The Mountain Collective,” Henceroth said in a news release. “Skiers and snowboarders who are looking for a taste of adventure at some of the world’s most challenging resorts will love the high-alpine, big-mountain experience and laid-back vibe that A-Basin has to offer.”

The Mountain Collective includes Alta and Snowbird in Utah, Lake Louise and Banff Sunshine in Canada, Jackson Hole in Wyoming, and Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows and Mammoth Mountain in California.
