    This is a great synopsis.

    I get 2 "mini" season passes, Killington/Pico and Belleayre/Gore/Whiteface. So I still get some variety. But I always enjoyed going to around 10 "off pass" mountains per...

    I believe that Racer's Edge at Hunter had the first automated snowmaking install.

    Go slug!

    I am about to pull the string on a pair of Kore 93's along with a pair of 117's for powder days. Will probably go 180 for the 93's and 191 for the 117's.

    I paid 1K for my Killington/Pico pass. I consider that a good value considering where I live and my proximity to K (less than 3.5 hrs). I supplement that with a NYS 3 in 1 so I get Catskills access...

    Perspective is the issue here.

    esb is clearly a mostly weekend skier; midweek closings have no impact (or little impact) on him.

    tuna often keeps a weekday ski schedule and would sorely miss...

    So basically the Sackler's will throw them a $3B bone and then provide rescue drugs for the overdoses from their opioids.

    Such a deal. That's chutzpah.

    What does a Killington passholder get? We get to ski K and Pico, that's it. Which is fine by me.

    But frankly, I don't want a lot of megapass freeloaders skiing at K for 7 days a season and get...

    I would hate to see resorts like Killington or Sugarbush become unlimited access on any mega pass. The 7 day limited access on Ikon is bad enough.

    Bite your tongue.

    Wait until one of these mega owners goes bankrupt and 25 ski hills close down at once. That'll be great, huh?

    Good for Plattekill!

    If they were open 7 days a week instead of Fri-Sun I would definitely get a Platty season pass, but as a weekday skier it makes no sense for me.
