    I haven’t seen a reference to this on the board but I saw today that the previous arrangement from the ticket office was once you turned 70 years old , you could ski for free , no lift pass required.
    As of next year , 2020, those over 70 will need to pay $199 for a season pass.
    What was once a loyalty incentive has now been removed.
    In my Lodge, we have a few over 70 who have made Hotham their home mountain and were looking forward to skiing for free after many years of paying lift prices.
    Shame on you Mt Hotham

    It's a Vail resort now, so that more or less brings it into line with Perisher, which was $189 for an over 70 season pass this season. Still a huge bargain. It seems a number of resorts are withdrawing their free over 70 passes, because there are just too many of us these days.
