IKON and The Mountain Collective - Ride HANAZONO this season

Every year, more resorts around the world get on board with integrated ski passes, making it possible to travel the globe and experience the best snow in any season, any hemisphere, all with one ticket. 
HANAZONO Resort as part of Niseko United is proud to be included in the IKON and The Mountain Collective (TMC) integrated pass families for the 19/20 season, giving the opportunity for snowsport riders to make their way to one of the world’s newest powder meccas.

What is an integrated ski pass?

Passes like the IKON and The Mountain Collective are agreements between different resorts around the world, granting the holder a limited number of free days to every resort on their list. This encourages holders to visit different regions and countries in both the Northern and Southern hemisphere seasons, and provides more variety of terrain than what you would receive from buying a season pass for a single resort. Each year more passes and collectives pop up as resorts show more interest in showcasing what they have to offer to hungry riders from all around the globe.
If you are looking to travel to more than one continent or multiple resorts in a mountainous area like USA or Europe, integrated ski passes are a great option as they can save you money and give you more options for where to ski, creating trips of a lifetime.
