    Plenty of idiots out there, not confined to any one certain group. Humans seemingly have a biological predisposition to gather in large groups and ignore rules.

    This!

    Skiers who depend on day passes are going to have a tough time this coming season. A big reason the Indy pass is so popular.

    I guess I should have read the title of the thread more carefully...overpriced is different from expensive which is where I was coming from.

    $600 for a Windham pass would be a good value. But I still would not buy one.

    I'm not trying to dump on Windham but an unrestricted Killington season pass is $1,000. $1,349 is highway robbery in...

    $1349 for a Windham only season pass.
    $1499 for a Windham Ultra pass that includes an Ikon base pass.

    Not sure why anyone would buy a Windham only pass that price must be a typo.

    To be fair, Minnewaska does not charge for parking but Mohonk Preserve (privately owned) charges $10 for each person in the car. I'm quite sure that is a main driver of the usage difference.

    I like Elk but I think $795 is steep. Until this coming season I thought the same about Platty.

    Weird circumstances make expensive suddenly look appealingly valuable.
