    Skiing on the Cheap - 2016-17 Edition

    They have always been transferrable. You can use all four tickets the same day for you & your friends. The catch is only the person that purchased the quad pack can redeem the tickets & has to be there in person to do so. You can't give them to someone else to redeem.

    Killington 2016-7: It's On!

    I say just stick with tuna's forecasts. If he says it's going to dump stay home. I've found more inaccuracy in his forecasts than any other projections posted on here. yeggous is another. My projection is there will be lift serviced skiing at K tomorrow with free lunch for passholders.

    Skiing/Snowboarding Trends

    Work is a full time job. The younger generation just doesn't have the free time a lot of us enjoyed. For most it's not 9 to 5 anymore. I see it with the hours my daughter has to work & she has a good job with a major corporation.

    Killington 2016-7: It's On!

    If lunch is anything like pass holder appreciation day in the spring they feed you well. If I remember right they gave you a choice of either a regular burger, bison burger, vegi burger or chicken filet. Lettuce, tomato, pickle, regular salad or pasta salad plus a free beverage. Nice gesture on...

    billski I do the season pass route for the most part plus purchase a VT. Pass. The season pass I usually get down to under $20 a day for skiing. I ski K or Pico which are the closest mountains to our ski club lodge . The VT. Pass is $40 some odd dollars a day as I'm sure you know & lets me ski...

    Skiing on the Cheap - 2016-17 Edition

    I hardly use them anymore, maybe a day or two at Stowe, that's it. Haven't bought a bulk ski club ticket in years. I ski for less money without them. The deal for belonging to a ski club for me is not lift ticket saving, it's the savings on lodging costs.

    Skiing on the Cheap - 2016-17 Edition

    When Sugarbush first came out with the original $199 quad pack a few years ago there was no tax added. That's one of the benefits of the Ski VT. passes & MAX Pass, the price they quote is the price you pay, no tax.
