New Five-Resort $349 Pass

Come Hither: Alta, Aspen, Jackson and Squaw/Alpine team up.

The new motto for resorts this season just might be All for One, One for All, as four of the biggest names in the sport have banded together to offer a unique, unified ski pass. The new Mountain Collective pass, working with Liftopia, offers eight days of skiing at Alta, Aspen/Snowmass, Jackson Hole, and Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows for $349.

From Pink Vail to Skiing With Heroes, on-snow charities give extra meaning to a day on the mountain.

Voluptuous tutus, sequined pirate hats, flowing superhero capes—all pink—proliferated on Vail’s slopes. In costumes and with flare, skiers joined an annual charity event called Pink Vail, which is held each spring.

All aboard the Winter Park Express, this skier experiences the reinvigoration of a Colorado ski train.

The jingling alarm didn’t wake me, but the sound of a train whistle did. I sat up straight. It was Ski Train Day—no regular Saturday ski day—when the Winter Park Express would run from Denver’s Union Station to Winter Park Resort and back.

Les Otten is back in the ski business with grand plans for turning one of the last remaining gems of New Hampshire’s grand hotel era into a full-amenity base area village and what would be the Northeast’s largest ski area. In a recent interview, the former CEO of American Skiing Co. sketched out his plans for revitalization of the Balsams Resort in far-northern Dixville Notch, well-known as home of first-in-the-nation voting.

Weather guy Mark Breen is loving this winter as much as the rest of us. And he sees more of the same in the longterm forecast. Sorry about that, Western resorts.

Mark Breen’s calm baritone is a familiar part of the soundtrack to life in Vermont, where his detailed daily forecasts air daily on Vermont Public Radio. He’s the senior meteorologist and planetarium director at the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury, where his Eye on the Sky weather forecasts are produced. Breen doesn’t spend a lot of time riding ski lifts, but says he likes to get out with friends on nordic skis or snowshoes. And he’s a big fan of winter.
