Tahoe Season Passes for 2011/2012

I've been looking into season passes for next season since a lot of them are discounted right now. Hopefully, I could start a discussion on which are good deals... some research I did so far:

Sugarbowl:
CORE Midweek - $329 [Valid M-F, non-holidays, 7 days/wk at beginning and end of season]
Core Summit Sunday Plus - $429 [same as above except + Sunday]
Core Slightly Restricted - $529 [7 days/wk except holidays]
Core Unrestricted - $799 [completely unrestricted]

All passes include spring 2011

Alpine Meadows/Homewood:
Unfiltered - $699
Slightly Filtered - $499 [holiday blackouts]
Filtered - $359 [holiday blackouts and no Saturdays in Jan/Feb]
Spring Pass (2011) - $99

Mt. Rose:
2011 Spring + 2011/2012 Season Pass - $431

Kirkwood:
Premium - $499 [unrestricted, premium lift line]
7Wood - $349 [unrestricted]
6Wood - $269 [no saturdays]
5Wood - $199 [no saturdays or sundays]

Heavenly/Northstar:
Epic Pass - $649 [unlimited Heavenly/Northstar/Breck/Keystone/etc.]
Epic Local - $499 [7 days/wk, holiday blackouts, incl Breck/Keystone/etc.]
Tahoe Value - $379 [Heavenly 7 days/wk, Northstar Sun-Fri, holiday blackouts]
$49 deposit and pay later

Squaw Valley:
Gold - $699 [unrestricted]
Silver - $499 [holiday blackouts]
Bronze - $399 [holiday blackouts, no Sat. in Jan/Feb]

Sierra-at-Tahoe:
Unlimited - $349
Value - $199 [holiday blackouts, no Sat]

I'm leaning towards Alpine Meadows filtered pass because I know I can get there more often, and I can go to other resorts on blackout times.

Nice, a friend I know out there right now living in South Lake did the Sierra and Heavenly/Northstar value season passes for this winter and seemed really pleased with them. There's also a link from another thread to Kirkwood Network Passes (unlimited/no black out dates) for $299 which saves 200 bucks from the premium pass.

Kirkwood Network Pass - Kirkwood Season Pass Details

I'm probably moving out there for January - April and am leaning towards Sierra and Kirkwood because $299 and $199 are kind of too good to pass up before the prices increase.

Wow, that Kirkwood deal is awesome. I'm just hesitant with Kirkwood because it was such an ordeal getting there last weekend that I'm not sure I can make it as often there as a North Tahoe place...

Tahoe needs an epic pass (or the epic pass can include just one more tahoe resort ...)

If you're not too concerened about the money, go for the Northstar epic pass. At least that's what I would do. Best park out of all of them.

I vote for the northstar. (haha, i really like northstar!)

But my friend didn't want to fork out the money now for a season pass, so and I really only ride with her or alone, so I will have to wait
