So, I'm going to guess the title of this thread gives away my age.
Back when I started skiiing in the '80s, the United States Recreational Skier Association (USRSA) had a discount program for their members. Essentially, it was a punch card where you got 1-5 discount lift tickets (per season) at resorts all over the country and discounts on things like tune ups at sports shops. It was, as I recall, like $45 a year, back in the '80s and '90s.
At that time, I was living in SoCal, by the beach, but was still managing to log about 30 ski days a season. As I got older and more responsible (I got a real job and had a family), my ski days declined until I found myself living in Oklahoma, logging ZERO ski days.
Now I'm in Colorado and the kids are older, so I'm eager to get back to 30 day seasons. That's all well and good, but, since I'm new to CO, I didn't want to commit to a single mountain yet. That rules out season passes. At the same time, I don't want to pay tourist prices, so I'm looking under every rock to scare up discounts. So far I've found some pretty good deals at Copper and Winter Park, but, given that this is Season One for me in CO, I want to try everything.
That got me thinking about the old days. Now I know (well I think I know) that the old USRSA is no more, but is there anything like it around that has discounts at a bunch of resorts? I can't believe there's nothing out there, but I'm not finding anything.
