    Fox 44 is out > 1 month ahead of normal.

    They got Gore back, and added Magic, which is good, but then they lost Smuggler's Notch, which is bad.

    I really wish they'd just charge a little more & add real mountains, rather than all these places nobody will ski. Northeast Slopes? I've never even heard of it. Oak Mountain? I've never even heard of it.

    I actually think I'll probably pass. I'll definitely hit Whiteface & Gore. I could probably hit Magic a 2nd day (already have vouchers), but that's $50 a ticket, which is not very good S.O.T.C.

    Not bad in a pinch. I just have Liftopia listed in the whole region deals. Gonna get too crazy if I try to chase the best deals on there specifically.

    I could see MRG, Burke, Cannon, Suicide 6 (for fun), Magic and possibly Gore and Whiteface depending where you live. That would be worth it. But for a few not so much.

    If anyone plans on being in Colorado the Gems card is a good deal. We compliment our Epic Pass with 4 of these cards. It is $25 and you get two 2fers or two 30% a single lift ticket at 9 ski areas so 18 2fers ot 18 discounted tickets. We generally hit Loveland and Ski Cooper and use them at A Basin for friends and family. Last year we hit Sunlight, Monarch and Eldora as well.

    I am seeing price of $175 not $150

    Also Smugglers Notch *is* included. So is Owl’s Head.

    I think it was $150 yesterday and not sure those 2 were on it yesterday either.

    I think I could get 8 days out of it for $21.86 per day.
    Smuggs
    Burke
    Cannon
    Bretton Woods
    Magic
    Middlebury
    and maybe Suicide 6
    With a part day at NE slopes so maybe 9 days at 19.44 a day.
    hmmm...

    Hopefully I get one with a Smugg's pass included for the $150 I already paid. Smuggs and Owl's were definitely not on the list yesterday.

    Weird. I will update it here.

    Interesting. So they added a card version with Smuggs, but added an extra $25 for that one.

    Adding Smuggs is great, but at the new pricepoint of $175 you better use is at least 5 times for S.O.T.C. worthiness.

    My gut says there is only one version of the card. Smuggs and Owl's Head were just added today. I suspect anybody that got in for $150 will be getting an unexpected bonus. Early bird gets the worm!!!

    Still no sign of Bolton though. Maybe tomorrow???

    It could be, but that's very strange simply from the standpoint that printing fees are extremely expensive. Meaning, if you're going to print, you'd assume you'd know which mountains are on your card and the price you're charging. Perhaps it was an error to release it early at $150 or something, because I do agree it would be odd to have to print 2 versions of the card, but who knows.
