    Got an email today from Stratton. They are offering on their site 50% off lodging, and up to 2 free 3 day midweek lift tickets if you book the lodging mid week. That is a hell of a deal for anyone that wants to plan a midweek trip this early.

    Never thought that was a deal. It is compared to their daily lift ticket price I guess but mostvdeal hunters are probably going for the a daily average of $20-30 and that would skew it a lot. I can get 4 lift tickets to other places like Bolton Valley for around $100 or here in CO at Loveland 4 for $130.

    I have a baby girl due in December so I'm not sure how that will affect my ski season. Probably less skiing. Really hoping to snag a Fox 44 ski card this year and see if I can get some variety on the cheap. Might only be able to do 20 days so that covers a lot of bases in itself.

    Congrats Tuna. Hope all goes smoothly for you and your wife leading up to welcoming the new bundle of joy. Fox44 would be a good play for you from your location. Maybe pair it with a Berkshire East pass. Having a quick hitter option with a newborn is key with a newborn.

    Thanks DHS. Her grandmother lives just a few minutes up the road (and in the direction of 91 North) so I might be able to pull it off.

    Think the strategy this year =
    1x Fox 44 card
    1x Ski VT 5
    1x Ski VT 3
    Mountain Sports Club premium membership includes 2x Berkshire East passes
    Maybe get the ski shop to give me a Mt Snow pass when I get new boots this summer
    BEMI Ski show and grab some Bolton Valley coupons, see what else I can get cheap/free

    Heck I don't even have to go watch a Warren Miller movie this season (though I might).

    Congrats!!! Wait til you can ski with the kid, big time fun! I think I got about 40 days in this year with my 5 year old twins. Nothing better. Ski days dropped big time for the first couple years. Wife was actually great about me getting a big western trip in each year though. But she would also get in a warm weather trip or two. Luckily I was always very comfortable taking care of them myself. So my guess is the more helpful your are when you're around the better chance of getting some ski time for yourself. It ain't always easy, but so worth it.

    Congrats! I concur with others here when your kids are 3 years old lessons start. While it is not difficult skiing it is one of the most exciting. Then they get better and better when as a teen they out ski you!
