Rest assured: even when your home mountain hasn’t seen a storm in weeks, it’s always snowing somewhere, and thanks to Colorado’s Monarch Mountain, fresh snow is a little easier to find.
Monarch's One Planet One Pass provides ski and snowboard access to two continents, five countries and nine states, all on one season pass. With a total of 31 resorts worldwide, globetrotting powder hounds can cash in on the One Planet One Pass for $359 (adults, ages 16-61) until Nov. 4.
Many resorts throughout Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, California, Montana, Arizona, Michigan, New Mexico, North Carolina and British Columbia will welcome One Planet One Pass passholders with three free days of skiing or riding, although some, like Alta and Arizona Snowbowl, offer unlimited half-price tickets or specific lift and lodging deals. Even cross-country skiers can gain access to more than 100km of groomed Nordic trails at Colorado's Devil’s Thumb Ranch with three free days.
If skiing the Alps has graced your bucket list, Monarch Mountain’s European partners make it easier to plan a visit overseas. The One Planet One Pass benefits also include unlimited skiing and riding at six European resorts during the 2012-2013 season, including Hochfelln, Kampenwand, Wendelstein and Oberaudorf, Germany; Hochkossen, Austria; and Masella, Spain.
Of course, sometimes there’s nothing quite like home, which is why the One Planet One Pass is also valid for unlimited skiing or riding at Monarch Mountain all season long. Flash your pass in town, and you’ll also earn loads of discounts at local restaurants, shops, hotels and businesses.
