Default What are season's pass deals and timing?

I'm basically asking what is the best time to buy seasons passes at the various mountains? For instance, for Seymour passes the best time to buy is September -- 60% off. Grouse has Y2Play, which I think you have to buy near the end of the previous season, and might be 50% off.

What I'm mostly interested in is family seasons pass for Cypress. I've gone through the web page and it looks like you basically buy the individual passes for the family members then get 10% off. Which sucks.

So, what's the best time to buy passes for the local hills to get the best discounts? And in particular is there a better way to get the family pass at Cypress?

I'm not sure what the best times are either. There's a few passes on Craigslist usually with lots just after Christmas for $5-700. I tried to get one this year but had no luck. Not family rates like you're asking but while we're on the subject...

Not related to your home mountains Donutz, but most season passes around me are cheapest until about mid-June for all options. Usually about 35% off or so, then you get about 20% off until September, and then full price after that.

To answer my own question, I just checked Cypress' website and they have a spring sale on until April 15th. Passes for myself, my wife, and my daughter would be $1760 until then, and about $2350 regular. So definitely worth looking at. Now comes the part where I have to sell my wife on the idea...

Boy, I've got more than $1760 invested in my wife. You whipper snappers get all the breaks.
