Buy a season pass at Monarch this year, and you'll get three free days this season at Crested Butte, Loveland, Purgatory, Sunlight, and Powderhorn in Colorado. You get one day of complementary skiing at Silverton Mountain during their "Unguided Season." You can also ski three free days at Angel Fire and Pajarito in New Mexico. You can ski for half price throughout the season at Alta, Utah.
The benefits at the other mountains are reciprocal with Monarch.
It's an interesting marketing strategy that gives skiers and riders more options to visit some super surrounding mountains. "Partnering with these other resorts adds a great deal of variety for our pass holders," said Rich Moorhead, Monarch President. "Being able to ski more areas makes our passes more valuable and the feedback from our skiers has been great."
Season passes are still being sold at a discount at Monarch. Prices go up Nov. 3. Monarch's motto is, "At Monarch, you'll lose the crowds, but not your friends."
