    dlague, thought you moved to colorado... are you just doing this for old time's sake? Whatever the reason, it's much appreciated.

    Greatly appreciated Dlague! Always an exciting time of year.

    Yeggous, what do the Maine and NH prices usually look like?

    NH and Maine are generally not as cheap. They run in the range $50-68. Given it helps that they have no blackouts, but they are still not the best deals.

    I've never understood that. Outside of Sunapee and Loon, most every NH could use more business. You would think the strategy for the state's ski business would be to provide substantially better deals than VT to attract Mass skiers from driving on through NH to VT.

    That's a great ski club deal from Stowe. Did it a few years ago and I don't remember it being that cheap. 2 mid-winter weekend days for under $100! That's pretty freak'in awesome for any large mountain...let alone Stowe.
    2019-2020 19 days and counting...

    It is the Vermont Ski Areas Association (Ski Vermont) that organizes the great ticket deals. The NH and Maine ski areas don't have anywhere near the same level of organization or effectiveness. The relative strength of Ski Vermont probably has a lot to do with the differences. But why is Ski Vermont stronger? I don't have the necessary perspective to even speculate.

    Actually the ticket price went up $1, last year it was $45. It's been going up a buck or two every year. Also last season was the first time they didn't offer multiday discounts. The daily cost of a ticket is now the same whether you buy one day or three. They also used to do a few four consecutive day deals during the season. They are offering more weekend dates than they used to though, used to be mostly weekdays. This actually works to my disadvantage. Still the best deal on Stowe lift tickets that I'm aware of.

    edit: The Dec., Mar, & Apr. dates are Fri.-Sun. The Jan. & Feb. dates are Wed.-Fri.
