I'm surprised Seven Springs/Hidden Valley/Laurel Mountain in PA remain on the list/map, as Vail Resorts has acquired those resorts.

Here's this year's. You are right that the new Vail PA ski areas are long gone: https://www.stormskiing.com/p/ski-cooper-releases-2022-23-partner?s=w

The price point has changed. It's 499 now.

This is quite a loophole! I'm actually considering buying one to go to 4 or 5 regional resorts and only use the reciprocal days without visiting Cooper. Do you know if they'll ship you the season pass? Or do you need to go to CO to pick it up?

They mail the season passes. But, they don’t do so until mid-November, so if you’re wanting to use it before then you’ll pretty much be SOL (but I think this is typically only an issue for trying to do early season at Loveland).

I wondered how long it would take for Cooper’s massive reciprocity agreements to be noticed — Monarch also does a tremendous job, especially for resorts in Colorado (has 3-day agreements with both Copper(!) and A-Basin(!) It’s cheaper to get a Monarch season pass than two three-packs separately at each). Getting either Cooper or Monarch in addition to a Epic is one of the best “secrets” around, as neither mountain gets lift lines (even on holidays so best mountains to go to during them), and you also can ski the majority of the mountains in CO.

And you didn’t tell us earlier?

Wow this is a deal. Last year I went 3 powder days to holiday valley and each ticket was around $85. This years window rate is 93, 3 lift tickets to holiday valley itself pays for this + 1 day anywhere else and you’re on top.
