Former Winter Olympics venues Whistler and Squaw Valley are offeing a joint ticket this season
Skiing enthusiasts can buy a single ski pass this winter season to access two of the most popular resorts in North America.
Squaw Valley in California and Whistler Blackcomb in Canada's British Columbia are both former Winter Olympic venues offering top quality slopes for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities.
Sports travel insurance holders will now be able to purchase a single card - the Ultimate 7 - which will give them four days in Squaw Valley and three days on the slopes at Whistler Blackcomb.
The card will be valid for the entire 2011-12 winter season and users will have the option of topping it up if they want to extend their holiday.
Together the two skiing resorts offer 12,000 acres of terrain that can be enjoyed by everyone from beginners to experts.
Squaw Valley was the venue for the 1960 Winter Olympics while Whistler hosted the event last year.
Andy Wirth, chief executive officer of Squaw Valley, 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."
