[R312R, Panorama Mountain Village] is reinventing ways of getting discounts to families. The resort now offers a family pack of lift tickets through Costco stores in Alberta and Saskatchewan; plus, it is offering discounted child care in January.

The Panorama Family Packs contain two adult and two youth tickets. The four tickets would cost $270 at the resort ticket window, but the Panorama Family Pack purchased at Costco reduces the prices to $115 CAD, granting a savings $155.

The family packs include one day of lift tickets for two adults and one day of skiing for two children 18 years old or younger. The lift tickets are valid to April 11, 2010.

Panorama Family Packs are available in person at 11 Costco locations across Alberta and Saskatchewan. Find them in Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Medicine Hat, Regina, and Saskatoon stores.

The resort is also offering reduced child care fees in January. You can save 25 percent on Wee Wascals Childcare for half and full day bookings through Panorama Mountain Village lodging.

The child care center takes children from 18 months to five years old. The child care discount is available to those making new bookings for stays before Jan. 31 and does not apply to lessons or lunches.
