    I just read ALL of last year's Skiing on the Cheap posts. Wrote down a bunch of what seemed like it might be back and some pricing to remember on deals. Will be looking for certain stuff again this year. Great stuff! Great Thread. Thanks Bill.



    My question today is about season passholders getting deals at other mountains. What have been your experiences with this type of offer in past seasons.

    Also interested in Ski Super Bowl Sunday deals and St. Patricks' Day Deals. Valentine's Day is a Thursday this year so I'd look at making a weekend of that as well.

    HOT in PA today with a nasty line of thunderstorms w possible hail etc. coming today. Nice to think about snow and read last year's thread with a Meathead film on the tube in the background. Think Snow!

    Hey SVGUy, can we count on you to post what you find? Let's share the wealth, even if it means repeating itself.

    I am clueless about season passes; it's against my religion
    I'm sure others will pipe in, but just don't be in a hurry. Many members go AWOL until September/October.
    You are right that you'll find the best pass deals now. Check their facebook pages. They seem to be announcing stuff there sooner than other outlets.

    Nice summary, thanks.

    The Clymb had the Geigerig packs a couple days ago during their huge sale. They we're already sold out when I noticed, so I didn't bother posting it. I'm sure there's a good chance they'll be back. I think the price was $56 for one of the larger packs.

    Definitely try to get one of the geigerrig hydration packs of the clymb. I picked one up last year and use it all the time for hiking and mountain biking. The pressurized system is really nice. Plus I used the Hunter bogo.

    Thanks for making that nice list of savings!
    I filled up 2 of the skiridefree.com coupons and didn't get to use either since they weather did not cooperate in march

    Stowe did not have a St. Pat's deal last year because St. Pat's fell on a Saturday. The previous year it was $39.

    I believe the wear green deal was for MRG.

    From Win's Word at Sugarbush - Joint College Pass w MRG - wish I was in my 20's!

    "In just a few weeks, we will be marketing 2012/13 season passes at our early-season rates (these rates are good until September 12th). This year, we are teaming up with Mad River Glen to offer a joint College Pass and offering a new feature on our For20s Pass that allows a For20s passholder to ski MRG on weekdays for an extra $80 plus tax. This partnership with our famed single-chair neighbor is a joint effort to get more people to understand the special nature of the Mad River Valley, and we hope to find other ways to work closely together in the future.
