Lutsen season pass cost.- Did you know you pay a higher price for a season pass if you live in Twin Cities vs Duluth

Can someone please explain to me the logic behind Lutsens season pass pricing. Why do Twin City vs. Duluth residents pay more?

 

I understand giving the local community a discount, but its hard to say Duluth is part of the Lutsen Community its 92 miles and Twin Cities is 257 miles.

Perhaps the same reason why the folks across the valley were letting the locals ski for free yesterday:

 In appreciation of your local patronage and support of our resorts and operations, Boyne Highlands Resort, as well as sister resort, Boyne Mountain, are pleased to offer a full day of FREE skiing/snowboarding and more to residents of Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Emmet, and Otsego counties on Sunday, January 11, 2015. FREE access to the 115 downhill trails at Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain, plus the parks, pipes and cross country trails at both resorts is available 9am to 4:30pm on Sunday, January 11.
 

 

Or why Vail used to only sell epic passes to folks from the area.

 

OTOH, you can buy a season pass at Searchmont for about half of what the locals pay:  http://www.searchmont.com/season-pass-pricing/

 

 

Go figure.

That's makes no sense.

 

I'm inquiring  on why Lutsen would charge  Twin City residents more then Duluth residents for a season pass. Both are not local communities to Lutsen

'Cause up on the Range, 90 miles is local.  Most of the Summit County, CO resorts all consider Denver and the Front Range from Boulder to Colorado Springs to be "local" skiers.  I would assume that Lutsen is trying to draw more day skiers from the Duluth-Superior area away from Spirit Mountain while recognizing that, for Twin Cities residents, Lutsen is a 'destination resort', being close to a 4 hour drive from the metro area, and therefore their pricing for anyone not "local" will be different.
