    Noticed this year that you don't get a liftopia $10 gc when going to the boston ski show. You get one from the shitty site getskitickets.com. As of now they have a whopping 1 ski area in the Northeast they are selling tix for - Waterville

    Yep, don't think it's happening this year. I had this pass last year and many of the Northeast mountains complained they had too many visits from Bohemia pass holders, due to the cheap cost. Too bad. I got a dozen or so days on it last year. Looks like Whaleback took the spot.

    So... a $299 Unlimited Adult Whaleback Pass, automatically gets you 3 anytime days at all the Freedom Pass participant mountains? (Black NH, Magic, Lost Valley, Dartmouth, Granite Gorge, McIntyre, Plattekill) Seems like a no-brainer... Never mind the out west or AK options.

    From Whaleback:

    Regarding the passes, it can be confusing, even for us. We tried to simplify the product line this year and then the decision to join Freedom threw us a curve ball making things more complex. We are even still learning it.

    The "special" passes 3'rd Grader, Honor Roll, Military, Corporate do not get our LOCAL pass holder benefits at the other mountains. This would be K, Magic, Sunapee, Ragged, Eastman Xcountry, etc. The only ones who get that are Unlimited and Mid-week passholders.

    Enter Freedom: any pass that is an "unrestricted" ie full week pass is part of the program. This includes all those special passes because they are full week passes.

    In other words, there are our Whaleback ie Local discounts, and the Freedom discounts, and passes can differ between the two.

    Long story short, the Military pass is good with us all operating hours, is good with the Freedom Program, but technically you cannot take it to our partners and get the discount.

    Well that kills the Military Pass IMO.

    Oh, I don't know, the Freedom Pass benefits outweigh the what the Ragged, Sunapee, Powder, Eastman benefits would be for me. Magic skiers get 3 days on the Freedom, and K-mart skiers get a free Express Card for Military/Veterans anyhow... for me the Freedom benefits are going to work out better. Supplement it with a few other deals I think it'll work for me.

    It definitely isn't going to break the bank at $140.00. Still think that's a heckuva deal for the money.

    Somebody talks Tenney into joining the Freedom pass, and that would be great. Hint, hint...

    Sounds like a sound strategy for a Vet!
