Picking the Best Ski Pass: Epic Pass vs. Mountain Collective

With industry giants like Vail Resorts buying ski areas left and right, the season pass battle is heating up. Two of the best passes include Vail's unlimited, blackout-free Epic Pass and the powder-centric Mountain Collective ski pass. But how's a snow lover to choose? Luckily, our friends at Scout Ski (a travel site dedicated to finding and booking great places to stay and ski) created a fun infographic that compares the two passes. It's chock-full of helpful information like how to stage an epic road trip and which ski pass is better for destination skiers. And here's an interesting fact gleaned from Scout Ski's list: If you ski less than 24 days at Aspen Snowmass this season, it's cheaper to buy a Mountain Collective Pass than the resort's season pass. Check out the data and then tell us, Curbediverse, which season pass are you buying?
