    Well they are $120 if you walk up on a weekend and over $100 weekdays, maybe more or a couple $ less, but it's close either way.

    I would say the same about Killington and Stowe. Okemo is right up...

    Suffice to say Boston_E is more clever and possibly adventurous than me and has figured out a way to access it with minimal effort and without having to ski absurd steeps like Poma Line / Busted just...

    Maybe the prices for tickets and meals will become more reasonable. Probably not, the only major difference I've noticed under current ownership are price hikes. In the 80s and 90s Sugarbush...

    Just wondering how you know it hasn't been a big complaint. I don't have any inside connections at Pico or anything... and the hike may be relatively easy, but consider time spent on the hill. I'm...

    Maybe true but if you show up in time to ski when the lifts open you'll still be only a few rows away from the entrance.

    I only ever see these overflow lots in use on the way out in the afternoon....

    July and August 2019 were some of the nicest and sunniest weather, with localized rain showers and "sun showers" frequently, compared to what we've had in years/decade. Bluest skies I've seen in as...

    FWIW I was using Ride and Ski Card to get tickets (full day) in the low $40's midweek and low $50's weekends. Looks like that might be good again for at least 1 more year.

    Have been to both Pico and Burke on MLK Day and Burke had a worse lift line.

    Lodge different story.. but when I've been it's either hit or miss. As in, pick your seat anywhere you want, or no...

    I've been to Pico a lot of times when you can barely find a seat in the lodge all day. I guess mostly weekends, but even on days when the lot is half full that lodge has a hard time fitting everyone...

    I'll assume it goes on sale for either $175 or $199 this year. Either way this is an excellent breakdown, at least in my use case, let's assume I use it for these this year:

    MRG, Magic, Burke,...

    Funny thing, I must have been the first person to order because I got cards #001 and #002 in the mail. Guess what, only purchased one card. This was at the early $150 price too.

    Yeah it's just not that enticing even at $200, considering I'd only use it for Bolton Valley, Berkshire East, and Magic.

    Bolton Valley hands out $29 tickets like candy. Berkshire East I never pay...

    They told me Nov 1st but it sounded slightly up in the air, best idea is to start checking their site a few days before the end of the month. Good news is they don't fly off the shelf like Ski VT...

    If the scenario ever takes place that all the Indy resorts are closed, everything is "EPIC" and closed mid-week, I'll switch to 100% XC / backcountry / touring.

    OK so it's just you cheering on ski area closings then, in some sort of ironic misplaced sense of responsibility for the financial wellbeing of smaller players in the ski industry? Nevermind.

    I'd be in if they gave us options ala "East", "West", "Midwest" and "Full Pass". At adjusted pricing.
