    howdy y'all - hope everyone had an enjoyable and brief summer. with the overnight temps here in NYC starting to dip into the 50s, its that time of year again. buying unnecessary outerwear and gear to pass the days.

    QUESTION FOR YOU FINE FOLKS - when and where will the vt5 and vt3 passes be going for sale this year?

    I'm not sure to what extent this has been mentioned before in the past, if at all, but I always thought that the M.A.X. Pass was a really good deal but have never tried it...well this season I have pulled the trigger on it and will let you know what I think at the end of upcoming season.

    44 mountains nationwide (including Canada), 5 days each, no black out dates!

    If, like me, you don't happen to have a home mountain, then you sure can make good use of this card. Just plan your skiing around the featured mountains.

    At the present price ($679 - OUCH, I know, doesn't seem like anything that should be featured on this chain, but hear me out), if you manage to ski 20 days across the network your cost per mountain works out to be only $34 a day regardless of the mountains you visit!!

    East Coast mountains are fairly decent with a couple of gems:
    Belleayre*
    Blue Mountain (Canada)
    Gore
    Killington*
    Loon
    Mont Saint Anne (Canada)*
    Mountaincreek
    Mount Sunapee
    Okemo*
    Pico*
    Snowshoe
    Stoneham (Canada)
    Stratton*
    Sugarloaf
    Sunday River
    Tremblant*
    Wachusett
    Windham*
    Whiteface*



    I am targeting the 9 starred locations which brings my daily total to $15 a day (in the unlikely event I make 5 days for all). It is more realistic that I will only make 5 of them which still puts my daily total at $27 a day. And if we are able to make the dream West Coast trip then that number only goes down more!

    ...what say you?

    Don't forget Gore Mt. That makes ten places in day trip range for me. I've purchased the pass for myself and my two girls. A trip to Colorado is in the works so all ski days there are covered by the pass too. Maybe a weekend in NH or ME too. I'm set for winter and anxious for the snow to fly!
