    I did the full Epic pass since we need to ski on the black out dates and added the Mountain Collective which came out to around $1400 as well with no black outs. We will easily get our moneys worth...

    Deer Valley has to be the most expensive, its $2850 for a season pass. Aspen is $2400 if you buy before mid November $2850 after but you get an ikon base pass too.

    As I said earlier you obviously haven't skied all of Breck. Aside from the Lake Chutes, that speak for themselves, the entire E chair pod has outstanding expert terrain and that chair never has a...

    If you get that much skiing in the local pass in a no brainer. Out of the 4 Vail resorts closest to Denver Beaver Creek is my favorite. The resort is beautiful, its not crowded, and has tons of...

    If you can get at least 6 or 7 days in the Epic local pass makes a ton of sense. Everything skied after the 7th day is gravy.

    "Breckenflat is the CO equivilent of Okemo which is essentially white bread. No personality, bland, and everything looks the same as the last one."

    I'm not sure where your skiing but Breckenridge...

    Keystone also has tons of intermediate runs and phenomenal tree skiing if your into that. It is the cheapest of the Vail resorts and about and hour and a half from Denver with no traffic. We stayed...

    Yes, we skied MRG that Saturday then Stowe on Sunday/Monday. Stowe was crowded on Sunday it was empty on Monday.

    Good to know, I was going to ski Smuggs for the 1st time this year. I'll make sure to avoid the weekends.

    I don't know what it was but I was very surprised with the short lines for that weekend. When I got there I was thinking that maybe people are normally so deterred by the long waits why even think...

    Mt Ellen is a good one, also I was at MRG last year over MLK weekend and was surprised how uncrowded it was. The single chair took no longer than 5 minutes to get on.

    "And Paradise is more of a trail with "great character" than it is an expert run."

    The Paradise woods on the skiers left of the run has some of the best glades in all of New England. There are...

    I like how Sugarbush has their glades highlighted on it's trail map so that would be my favorite. I also happen to like MRG's trail map, it's definitely unique looking.

    The problem with Sterling is that the sun hits it first thing in the morning so that area melts out faster than Mt Mansfield. Also the sensation lift is never full, I don't see more development over...

    I was referring more to the interconnect than terrain development on Spruce. Linking the mountains alone cuts out a 45 minute drive and opens up a ton more terrain from the Stowe side. There were...

    Spruce Line, Whirlway, and Sterling are all great runs off of Spruce Peak. My favorite top to bottom line at Stowe is Bypass - Nosedive Glades - National.

    Snow doesn't stick well on Upper Goat so it gets scrapped off pretty quickly. Also since that part of the run doesn't open very often a lot of people try skiing it when it is open. Upper Goat was...

    I bought the family Epic passes for next year about a week before everything shut down. I'm curious to see how much of a discount they'll give out now but either way I'm locked in.

    Vail is canceling 80 to 85 mill worth of improvements out of the roughly 200 mill they planned on doing for next season. Their biggest savings is going to come from suspending 2 quarters of dividends...

    My take is that Killington and Jay have the best on the map glades. Stowe's side country is unbelievable, if your counting that Stowe's glades are tough to beat.

    I'd highly doubt they'd try and sell ski resorts in this type of environment. It's a desperate move that would return pennies on the dollar, shareholders would not be happy. Vail is the largest...
