Monarch Mountain has added an additional seven ski areas to their season pass for the 2010-11 ski season. Revelstoke Mountain Resort British Columbia, Taos and Red River New Mexico, China Peak California, Sol Vista Colorado, Arizona Snowbowl and Indianhead Michigan are new to the Monarch pass.

The seven new areas will be joining Loveland, Silverton, Durango, Sunlight and Powderhorn Colorado; Angel Fire, Sipapu and Pajarito New Mexico; Alta Utah and Grand Targhee Wyoming. The benefits vary at each partner area but most are offering three complimentary tickets to Monarch pass holders and Monarch offers the same to each partner area pass holder.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort in British Columbia Canada is offering all Monarch pass holders three days of complimentary lift tickets, 50% off on lodging at the Nelson Lodge and discounts on Heli skiing with Selkirk Heli Skiing. “The Revelstoke discounts can be used to put together a great Canadian ski vacation for our pass holders” said Greg Ralph, Monarch Marketing Director. “Building value in our season pass is a major goal and we’re very excited about this season’s pass offerings” added Ralph.
