Two of the raddest resorts in the world have just announced the most exciting thing since sliced bread. Squaw Valley USA, and Whistler Blackcomb have joined to make the Ultimate 7 Card. For $479 you get four days at Squaw and three days at Whistler with absolutely no blackout dates. This pass will be usable through out the 2011 – 2012 season. In addition, cardholders have the option to reload days on the pass and Squaw season pass holders will be able to receive a $25 (Canadian) discount on day passes at Whistler.
Both Squaw and Whistler have hosted the Winter Olympics and this, among other commonalities between the two resorts, has been stressed by Squaw Valley’s Andy Worth. In a statement addressing this announcement Worth said, “Whistler Blackcomb and Squaw Valley share a great number of qualities including unmatched, diverse big mountain terrain, a history uniquely inclusive of hosting the Winter Olympics and brands that are quintessentially about adventure, exploration and discovery. The Ultimate 7 provides our shared customer base, in all of California and North America, with terrific value and a way to easily and affordably access both legendary mountain experiences.”
The president of Whistler, Dave Brownlie stressed the financial benefits of this partnership, saying that, “Whistler Blackcomb is thrilled to partner with iconic Squaw Valley on this new card. The Untied States is a key destination market for Whistler with quick direct access into Vancouver. We look forward to sharing our No.1 ranked resort this coming season with our American neighbors.”
The Ultimate 7 Card brings skiers and riders a total of 12,000 acres of terrain and limited quantities will be available for purchase as Squaw.com and in the Season Pass Office in Squaw Valley. Cards will be mailed out in the month of October.
