[Costco] Western Canada (AB BC) Ski Lift deals 2020/2021

Here are the lift ticket deals I have seen in store at Costco so far for this season.

They are all 2 packs again and some have increased since last year.
I am including all of the pictures of the front and back of the cards so you can see the details on each deal for yourself. I also included last year's prices just for interest.

The threads for previous years are here:
2016/2017
2017/2018
2018/2019
2019/2020

Those are great deals for Sunshine and Revy considering how much the window prices have gone up. Thanks for the info!

Been waiting for these, thanks OP! I think I'm just going to go with the Revy vertical pass though. These aren't the greatest deals.

I just had a look at the Revelstoke Vertical cards. Just for other people, here is their deal (buy until Nov 25th):
  • The Vertical Card is the easiest way to ski multiple days at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Available with 1, 3, 5 or 10 days pre-loaded, this direct-to-lift loyalty card is your ticket to savings. Use your days any time - no blackouts!
  • 1 Day - $99
  • 3 Day - $239
  • 5 Day - $349
  • 10 Day - $645
  • Maximum one Vertical Card per person per season.

The difference is if it is just me and my wife going out for 1 or 2 days. The Vertical card would not be a good deal for me. The Costco lift tickets can be shared between people (there is just 2 physical lift tickets in the envelope from Costco).
Also, if you can't use them for some reason like bad weather, just return them to Costco. No questions asked.

If we were absolutely for sure going need at least 3 days of skiing each, then yes, the Vertical Card would be a better deal.

be careful with tickets this year.. .you have to pre-book the day you're going (for most mountains in BC anyway).

Friends of mine are having trouble booking days for December/January already since tickets are so limited.

Which mountain(s) have your friends been trying to book days for? Wasn't aware any reservation systems were open already

I'd be interested in hearing which BC resorts are doing this too.


This is from Sunshine's FAQ page for this season:
"Will you be limiting the number of passholders/tickets on the mountain?
At Banff Sunshine Village, our three mountains of terrain span across 3,358 acres. When out on the slopes, there is a lot of space for skiers and snowboarders to spread out. We do not plan to limit the number of passholders or ticket holders who can ski or ride. The capacity of Sunshine Village is already limited by its parking capacity which is far below the capacity of the terrain and lifts. Additionally, we have constructed three new temporary lodge facilities and two temporary washroom buildings to allow indoor social distancing. This winter, we will be encouraging our guests to ski midweek, and on afternoons to help us spread out arrival times. Products are being offered to incentivize this such as midweek and afternoon day tickets and season passes."

From Lake Louise's page:
"Health and safety are our top priorities, and we have given a lot of thought to whether or not to introduce capacity restrictions. We are not planning on implementing a reservation system at this time, and we are focusing on measures that ensure distancing can be maintained everywhere."

Fernie:
I can't find any info about reserving at all.

From Jasper Marmot Basin web page:
"You will not be required to reserve a time slot to enjoy our slopes and we`d like to emphasize that we will not force our lifts to be loaded to capacity at any time, no matter what."

Silverstar, each day is limited to the # of tickets they sell.. and if they sell out.. too bad, you cant ski that day, even if you rented/own a place there.. You cant buy online, you need to call them/email them.

Thanks op, always good to see someone post these up. Also as an FYI to people on the fence, like the Revelstoke Vertical Card, sunshine and lake Louise have their Sunshine Card and Plus Card deals as well, if you plan on going 7 times, you basically pay up front for the first ticket, but the card allows the 4th and 7th visit free as well as 20% off tickets for the 2nd,3rd,5th,6th as well as up to two children's tickets at 20% per visit. If you do the math after 7 visits it works out to around $70 per visit, for lake Louise at least. Excellent value if you can make it that many days there

Also should edit to say the plus card is also usable at various other resorts too Castle, Panorama, RED, and Schweitzer
