    I'll second that one. I've also been enjoying the woods between Looking Good and Upper Rim Run at Mt Ellen lately.

    Doubt it...if the refund hits your CC, your CC company typically gives you negative points for those transactions.

    That scenario does make it tough to go the season pass route. I bought a place up there 8 years ago which does make things easier. I live 5 hours away, but no kids and no wife so that certainly makes...

    Are those 15 ski days just for you? If so, a season pass at that point is a better value. Right now an SB season pass is $1200 (and we're already at the 2nd price increase for it I think). One...

    If you don't go out west at all you will never break even on the MC pass and the Quad Packs would be a far better value no matter how many days you ski at SB.

    Current price on the MC pass is $509...

    I was seriously tempted to bring MRG's price up in comparison to SB a few days ago when this conversation started. I know MRG is special and unique, but SB's daily rate really doesn't seem that...

    Yes, I'm obsessive with numbers. Sorry, can't help it! I do agree that any increase is a win (even just a 50% increase from ~4K to 6K would be a decent improvement).

    Yup. Great suggestion. I did actually donate to VT Adaptive just a few months ago (although not specifically for the lodge expansion as it was a more general donation if I recall correctly).

    And isn't the Ellen Lodge being expanded potentially next year anyway by Vermont Adaptive? Once they sink that money in I can't see the ME lodge being replaced at any point in the near future.

    Is it maybe that they want to increase the GPM by 2000 to get to 6000 GPM at LP? I looked back at our previous discussions in this thread and they were around 4K GPM at LP right now (meanwhile ME is...

    Wow...well played A-Basin! Opening from 3:30PM-5:30PM today and announcing just after Keystone says they open tomorrow. That is without a doubt them giving Vail the middle finger.
