One planet, one pass is the new motto for Monarch Mountain after adding new ski areas in the Alps to its season pass partnership program

SUMMIT COUNTY —The appeal of sliding down snow-covered mountains has always transcended national borders and ideologies, and this winter, Monarch Mountain has taken that global culture to a whole new level by forging a season pass deal with several ski areas in Austria and Germany.
The four German areas added are in Chiemgau region, not far from Munich: Hochfelln, Kampenwand, Wendelstein and Oberaudorf. In Austria, the Monarch Pass will be honored at Hochkössen. All are part of the 5 Berge & Co. resort group, and all are similar to Monarch in that they are mid-sized ski areas with a lot of good terrain and a friendly family vibe, without the mega-hype and mega-prices that characterize large resorts worldwide.
Monarch now has 26 ski areas as season pass partners Passes are accepted at nine areas in Colorado, six in New Mexico and at areas in Utah, Wyoming, California, Michigan, Arizona, British Columbia, Germany and Austria.
