Of course that depends on your situation. Louise and Sunshine plus cards both give 1st, 4th, and 7th day free. Take these examples for comparison...

Taking my wife to Lake Louise for 1 day of skiing and then to Sunshine for 1 day of skiing:
Costco Passes: $180 for 2 Sunshine passes + $198 for 2 Louise passes = $378 total
Plus Cards: 2 Sunshine cards for $198 + 2 Louise cards for $198 = $396 total

Same thing, but for 2 days of skiing at each of Sunshine and Louise:
Costco Passes: $360 for 4 Sunshine passes + $396 for 4 Louise passes = $756 total
Plus Cards: 2 Sunshine cards for $198 + 2 regular Sunshine lift tickets with $15 discount for $224 + 2 Louise cards for $198 + 2 regular Louise Lift tickets with 20% discount for $198.40 = $818.40 total

Same thing, but for 3 days of skiing at each of Sunshine and Louise:
Costco Passes: $540 for 6 Sunshine passes + $594 for 6 Louise passes = $1134 total
Plus Cards: 2 Sunshine cards for $198 + 4 regular Sunshine lift tickets with $15 discount for $448 + 2 Louise cards for $198 + 4 regular Louise Lift tickets with 20% discount for $396.80 = $1240.80 total

Once you get to 4 days of skiing at each, then it makes sense to do the plus cards.

sorry to hijack but every year BF sunshine super cards go on sale $80, no tax. its also the cheapest for the different season passes.
its against the rules, but every year ive been buying 3 cards and using the free days and asking tourists to use up my discount days. thats $27 a day for 9 days. i do sometimes feel like a bum soliciting tourists but they are really grateful and ive made some holiday friends.
rant alert:
window prices are for suckers and the price of lift tickets is out of control. that hills like marmot charge the same amount as sunshine is arrogance. i love jasper but i wont be visiting in the winter any more. im going to ski the hills this year but the pricing has me considering switching to touring next year

Not happening this year, you can only buy them from their website if you don't have a season pass.

No RCR this year? Fernie has increased their prices big time, so a bundle is a must. Plus they have discontinued the RCR card...now they are doing a discount card for $30 which is kinda crap.

Also shocking a Lake Louise bundle is $197, and Sunshine's is $179...they used to always be roughly the same.

Looks like no extra Cyber Monday discount this year for the Sunshine Super Card unfortunately, still listed at the $99 "sale" price not $79 like the last few years. I also noticed the option to have the card mailed isn't there this year.

Yeah, appears RCR is being really tight on everything this year, and Sunshine gave up on their Cyber Monday $79 card....seems Lake Louise is the only one operating as usual.

No incentive for any of the hills to offer unnecessary discounts. Everyone is clamoring to get out to the hills as other activities are restricted. With additional protocols and restrictions to maintain social distancing, it's going to feel like skiing back in the 80s and 90s when on site services and chalets were barebones, so if you want to take a break, it might mean going back to your vehicle to hang out. The local hill we normally get a membership at has reduced weekday hours and capacity in general but yet pricing remained in line with previous years, yet they sold out. Going to have a lot new skiers which is good for the sport/activity, however all of them showing up at once is going to meaning regular gong shows.

Well, I've already skied a few times this year...and Lake Louise felt pretty normal other than table service only lodges with 1/3 the tables, and mandatory masks in the lift lines. Fernie is getting rediculous with their insane $134 window lift ticket, no Costco card posted yet, and a new RCR card that is a joke this year (basically a small discount card). Not only that, Fernie just announced opening day Dec 10th...with potential further delays. Revy and LL ARE offering incentives.
I'll be only ski touring, and giving my money to Revy and LL this year.

I'm not sure if what you're asking for. Marmot passes are listed in the 1st post.

Same experience here. We buy a Nakiska pass every year as my son is 9 and he still enjoys it. We've done LL 3 times already and had great days there. Nakiska far oversold tickets on the one Saturday we went, the line up was waaaay over the top, we left. Also went last Friday and due to wind they were delayed opening until noon. They didn't update social media or their site until 11ish, going to be hard to even use our pass there this season. LL is winning in my books.

From my blurry picture I took of the back of the card in-store, it does look like they have that offer again. I think it says $219/night (last year was $209/night). Sun-Thurs only. Complimentary self parking. There are blackout dates too but I can't make them out.
I'll have to get a better photo some time.

I like Marmot as a hill. Definitely smaller than Louise or Sunshine but still lots of awesome terrain and not nearly as busy.

That being said, I've never bought the Costco passes since unlike most of the other ones, Marmot's are consecutive days only. I don't normally ski the same hill 2 days in a row unless I'm staying the night somewhere further.
