    a buddy is moving to denver, got a sweet hospitalist job in aurora, and i think he made a good pass decision. he's getting the a-basin/keystone pass, and a max pass. makes good sense. two resorts with unlimited skiing (including the longest season in co), then 5 days at copper/wp/steamboat/eldora/crested butte, the ability to join the east coast friends on big trip (big sky? utah? kicking horse?), and days at his girlfriends family's killington house for the holidays.

    he will be working 10 days on/10 days off, which sounds as exhausting as it does amazing.
    We get my son the RMSP + and it lines up nice with the or Max Pass with Copper, Winter Park and Steamboat. Going to be real interesting to see what Aspen does next year. You can also get a Max Pass add on with the RMSP.

    Picked up the 17/18 Peaks this weekend at Wildcat. Just a solid deal.

    I've never understood the appeal of Mtn Collective. 2 Days isn't enough at any one area, and the areas are too spread out to combine them in a single trip.

    For me it's because a trip out west next yr will be with my brother who buys this pass. We would be getting free lodging in Sun Valley and do 3 days there + a few more in either SLC or JH.

    If I didn't have this connection the Max Pass is a far better play, I agree.

    The 3 resorts near SLC alone make up for the pass cost. You can spend a 6 day trip between Alta, Snowbird, and Snowbasin. Plus by using the 50% off additional days, you can easily make it pay for itself too. Like if you spent 4 days at Jackson Hole, the two free days plus two half off days (including the purchase price of the pass) is less than 4 days spent there otherwise. Then there is a third day included at a place of your choosing if you buy early.

    Everything else is then just gravy. It's a no brainer if the mountains on the pass were ones you wanted to go to anyways.

    My plan as always is to ski every weekend from roughly Veteran's Day through mid/end of April.

    This season (35 days) and last (40 days) I did the Killington Beast Pass + MAX Pass Add on. I enjoyed it but am getting a little too complacent with Southern Vermont skiing to justify wanting that Killington pass next year.

    Next year's strategy is Mountain Collective + Max Pass. Especially because they increased the price of the MAX Pass add on (I think from $249 to $329).

    For me, Mtn Collective is justified because you can designate one resort for that third day--Sugarbush in my case. I anticipate using the 3 days at Sugarbush, plus 1 trip out to SLC for any choice of Snowbird/Alta/Snowbasin/Sun Valley/Jackson Hole (maybe even Brighton or Solitude on my Max Pass). And/or a trip to like Banff

    MAX Pass will always be justified for me because inevitably I'll be skiing Southern Vermont a good handful of days. I stay in Ludlow quite a bit, the Okemo addition this year was huge. I plan to just squeeze as much juice out of the MAX Pass on the East Coast, and make 1 or 2 trips out West on it...maybe Crested Butte and Big Sky? Or Crystal? We'll see.

    Another thing I like about the combo is, I could do a three-way trip to Taos (Collective), Telluride (Collective) and Crested Butte (MAX)
    2014-15 - 35 ski days

    I have not either. However, if you want to make a four or so day trip there is Banff (Sunshine & Lake Louise), Telluride, Taos and Aspen (some considerable driving), in Utah Alta, Snowbird and Snowbasin. However that still sits at over 100 per visit if you do one trip and nothing else. If you live around an MC resort then it cost averages out a little better like adding in Sugarbush plus the 50% off days.

    Purchased a Peaks traveler pass. Used two days at wildcat already, maybe one more this weekend. Hoping my schedule next season allows me as many midweek days as I did this season.
