    I was browsing Costco's "This Week's Treasure Hunt" and came across this.
    That 20% Costco Cash Card brings the effective price down to $799, less than the original $899. Quite an incentive for someone still considering a multi mountain pass.

    Well that's a big " F you" from Alterra to anyone who invested before the early deadline. Say what you like about Vail but Epic is pretty good at price integrity ( bar the mid season deals chucked out at SIA)

    I guess one "perk" of the early season price (compared to this deal) would be the savings on kids passes. $250 a kid adds up.

    There is no deal for the $599 pass. IMHO, I am not sure I would have spent the extra (net) $200.00 for the full pass. But I will say that I am surprised.

    Maybe says something about sales so far? And/or they are going after the Costco demographic?

    Doing Costco road shows through the fall seems like a no-brainer in their large markets like Denver.

    I wonder if sales on the pricier pass were a bit flat. I am one of the people who could really benefit from the full pass, but even I decided it wasn't worth an extra $300 for two extra non-blacked-out dates at Aspen. I guess if you know you are spending the holidays at Aspen or wherever, you would do it, but if you're spending a week at Aspen at Christmas, a couple hundred bucks here or there ain't no big thang.

    Don't feel bad about the extra $100 I coulda saved. Got 4 week of spring skiing out of it already.

    Interesting deal. I'd be tempted if I didn't already have four other passes for next season which include a Mountain Collective.

    This! We bought the $599 Pass and I’m not sure we would have taken this deal instead, but it would have been nice to have the option.

    Paging @Muleski Does this promotion change your mind about Alterra?

    I actually don't mind if sales are a wee flat. Sure I think it's a good deal but whiney as I am the RMSP+ was a less costly solution for a Midwesterner with limited time west

    Maybe a option next year with an added alternative... Or Lowered price

    I think many of the folks who bought early got several days in and likely feel the same.

    I’m frankly too close to a few things in the ski world these days, and I can’t post about them.
    No changes of opinion on my part. None. Can’t go there.
    Alterra, Boyne, MTN, O-Z, USST, WC.....I’m pretty much out on here on those topics.
    I will say that a lot of people overthink every single “move” by MTN, Alterra, etc. I understand why. Fun to speculate, and challenge things. And assume they’re the same.
    I have agreed to back off on this, in writing.
    Cheers.

    Dunno - was just focused on why they were marketing it based on Norquay which is hardly a core resort for them although scenic. Never let reality get in the way of a good image.

    My wife will send an email to them, hopefully others do the same. We bought 2 adult and 2 kid passes at the early rate, so I don't know how much the costco discount would have saved us.
