Sunlight Mountain Resort announced it has new partnerships with ski areas in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming — and a deal that allows four days of free skiing in the Spanish Pyrenees.

The partnerships with other ski areas offers Sunlight season pass holders with free or steeply discounted skiing and snowboarding fees.

“We’re continually looking to add new perks for our loyal season pass holders and we’re particularly excited about some of the new partnerships we’ve formed for the upcoming season,” said Troy Hawks, Sunlight marketing and sales director.

At the top of the list of those new perks for season pass holders at Sunlight is four free days of skiing at Alp 2500, a ski resort that spans the towns of La Molina and Masella roughly 87 miles from Barcelona in the Pyrenees Mountains of northeast Spain. The resort features 87 trails and 33 lifts, including a gondola and six detachable chairs.

As part of the partnership with Sunlight, season pass holders at Alp 2500 will received free ski days at Sunlight as well.

According to Hawks, the partnership was formed this past season after Xavier Nolla, director of Masella, visited Sunlight for a day of skiing.

“Mr. Nolla was enamored with Sunlight’s small ski area charm, and he was particularly impressed with the many other attractions and amenities in the greater Glenwood area, including of course the hot springs,” said Hawks. “This is a clear indication that we are showing up on the radar as an international destination, and I attribute this to the great work being done by our marketing partners including Visit Glenwood and Colorado Ski Country USA.”

Sunlight season pass holders also now receive three free ski days at Purgatory Resort, and its family of resorts including Arizona Snowbowl and New Mexico’s Pajarito Mountain and Sipapu Resort. Other new perks include two-for-one lift ticket deals at Utah’s Powder Mountain, and Wyoming’s Grand Targhee and Hogadon ski areas.
