Costco in San Diego already has 4 lift tickets on sale:

$369.99 for Mammoth
$219.99 for Big Bear

They also have a lot of inexpensive snow gear for kids such as helmets, goggles, and gloves. They have cheap Head ski gloves for adults too and they work with touchscreens on smartphones.

Though at $92.50 a day I don't think that's such a good deal.

A 4 of 6 day ticket runs you $365 or $91.25

Yes but the Costco tickets don't have to be used all at once or by the same person.

That is true.
If you have a "friend" BAF's are 1/2 off.
Liftopia has a 4 of 6 day ticket for $71.75. Not as flexible as the Costco tickets but a lot cheaper.

And if you happen to going to Mammoth for a week trip (5 of 7) you can get your tickets for $59 a day!

I think I'll be coming for a week! :)

Well that sucks... Last year they were $300 for 4 tickets.

At current prices this is like a buy 3 get 1 free deal.

Now discounted e-vouchers for four lift tickets for $299, available on-line only and emailed to you within an hour.

Seems like a good deal for Spring Break visitors - almost as good as a BAF.

LOL... I wonder how many people will not buy it because the wording "not valid for access to Mammoth Mountain Ski Area"?

Is $90 considered a significant discount price? I've been out of the loop.

Yes. The walk up price was $140+ for much of last winter.

Considering my username, that would be my "walk away" price.

I was amazed that people were standing in line to pay that much on a couple of storm days when just a few lifts were spinning.

I would put on my xc skis, take the free Village Gondola up and have fun doing laps on the Comeback Trail during the storm.
