A heads-up that the MVP pass is now (starting today...) available for NEW members.
It's a 'season' pass for May 1, 2011, thru Apr 30 2012 (i guess...)
this coming yrs cost - $659
about the best deal for anyone doing more than a few days at Mammoth - 10 days means $66, rather than the projected cost which will approach $100/day
Not sure 'if' and 'what' any Costco ticket deal will be for next season... this yr it was $179 for 3 of 4 day pass...
not sure if they've set a 'limit' for new pass holders or how long it will be available...
