I don't know what to think. This could be awesome, but just as I was going to get the alpine/kirkwood pass for the sake of community and quiet vibes, this blows everything wide open. It may cause a balance between crowds and experience levels, which would be interesting. The big plus is that if you have a pass, it covers both resorts. Crazy. Now you can hit 6000 acres total.

If you already bought an alpine/kikwood/homewood/red lodge/ Durango pass before sept. 26 you get sqauw for free. I shouldn't have waited! Hah. Squaw/ alpine is 799 unrestricted ( same as the multi pass) and just noticed the ad up, top of the forum.
