    See...at that day ticket price point a season pass doesn't make sense.

    FWIW, my Sugarbush pass was $579. Really hard to complain about that price at a resort the size of Sugarbush.

    You were the one that set the bar at $89 as being fair for SB. I was just pointing out how they beat your bar! :lol: (I do think that was a decent price to expect to actually pay though)

    Stowe is $139/149 window rate. So move this over to the Stowe thread if you think it belongs in "a thread devoted to the resort with the single most expensive Eastern lift ticket"!
