$699.00

Don't know what the deal is from the other direction though. Looks like the Kirkwood Premium pass gets you to Alpine but I don't see any documentation on the Kirkwood site yet.

It's definitely intriguing... may consider this for the 2012 / 13 season if they still have it just to mix things up a bit.  Funny they didn't offer it sooner to compete with the vail / epic pass offerings.

Thats a pretty sweet deal, I agree it's something to think about for 2012/2013.  I already bought my 6 wood from kirkwood, i'm surprised it wasn't on their website as well.  I've never skied purgatory but would love to check out durango.  A ton of local ski options with a trip to southwest colorado equals a great year.

Homewood is also an underrated little resort - went there for the first time about a month ago and really enjoyed some of the terrain there, particularly off-piste.

jay, were you able to ski Homewood on a powder day? If not, go back for a nice dump, as you will be able to ski powder all day. As mentioned, it doesn't get the wind of Alpine & Squaw, so during many storms,when the others are closed, Homewood is still open.

I actually went on a weekday the day after a powder day, and was amazed how much of it was completely untouched.  Crusted a bit overnight but it softened quickly and I spent a big part of my day off-piste.  Really a lot of fun options skipping between trails and good tree spacing.

We hit it a couple of days late in the season when they honored other area passes. A good time was had by all.

I love the idea of including Kirkwood (one of my favorite hills) in the pass, but I am not sure I can justify the extra cost since our Kirkwood trips would mostly be day trips if any.

With two slightly filtered passes and two kids (5-12) our total cost is 1,220.00. Family pass with Kirkwood is 1,599.00. We usually avoid blackout days anyway since they are usually super crowded.
