    I ski about 30 days in the east and 20 out west every year. 7 sugarbush + 7 killington + 7 combined boyne + X Stratton + skiVT 3 pack = >30 eastern days. west is well taken care of. this is ok for me. Stratton for early season and late season short drives. k and sugarbush and others for the bulk of the mid season. western options a plenty.

    The max pass add on option was way better. This is a huge disappointment IMO.

    Sugarbush is interesting, unlimited Stratton days is a joke to me since that place is basically off limits on weekends. If it was unlimited Killington days, I would agree with you.

    The Loon/Sunday River/Sugarloaf combo 7 days is the kicker for me. That's CRAP.
    My wife and I have been discussing the same option for next season with a little one on the way.

    I also agree about the Loon/SR/SL combo 7 days is a joke.

    Agreed.

    IMO, this pass is a huge disappointment. The base pass for a New England-based skier/rider is awful.

    You people are crazy if you think this is worse than the Max Pass.

    it just depends what you wanted and got out of max. for a boston skier who doesn't go west, this totally sucks (losing southern NH places, and capping loon/sr/sl at 7 total). for a nyc skier who does go west (me), this is fine. losing catskills and adks sucks no matter how you slice it tho.

    I'm pleasantly surprised after panning it so hard. I think I could make the base pass work for my family.

    Copper or Tremblant over Christmas.
    5 Days at a western resort over February break, nice selection, just can't ski Sat or Sun of President's weekend.
    Pico, Sugarbush or Stratton on other non-holiday weekends

    Sunday River and Sugarloaf are further away from Boston than Stratton (which is a full pass now) as well as Killington and equal to Sugarbush so I don't really see the argument.

    Losing Wawa isn't the end of the world here.

    Given my user name you probably can guess how I feel about the NY resorts, but I guarantee that after only a year they weren't seeing that many users and bailed on the Ikon, which sucks, as the Face and Gore both have better terrain (but less snow) than the VT and ME offerings.

    The Ikon pass might be better than the max for people who either a) really love Stratton or b) take multiple western trips each year.

    Outside of those two categories, I don’t see how the Ikon is better.

    You're the one who keeps harping about Wachusett. Wachusett was mentioned a couple of times, but is not even close to the main issue here.

    If it were a Killington full pass instead of Stratton, I might be in. I don't like Stratton and even avoid it on the MAX Pass unless I can get there on a random mid-week day or something odd happens.

    Pretty much.
