    Was Stratton unlimited last year on the Ikon base pass?

    Nope. Same next year as it was this year. Unlimited on full Ikon but only 5 days on base.

I'm going out west next year, so not an option.
    3- When I say local, I mean up to 2.5 hours. The IKON only has 2 mountains within that distance for me. Stratton is 1.7 hours and Killy about 2.2 hours. Sugarbush is 3 hours so I could do a couple day trips a year but wouldn't want more than that. So that's 12 days local.
    4- IKON has like 12 unlimited options for the $649 pass; yet none in the North East. I'm not a huge Stratton fan, but hell, at least give me that unlimited for the hardpack/ice days.
    5- EPIC pass is decent with unlimited OKEMO and a little Stowe. But - Stowe is about 3.5 hours, so it's defiantly not a day trip. I prefer Mount Snow over Okemo because Okemo can be a little flat...
    Honestly it seems as if you might be looking for something that isn't realistic. If you used all 5 days at Stratton and Killington plus 2 at Sugarbush, then took a western trip and got 5 days in out there, that brings your daily cost to appx $38 per day which is really pretty reasonable.

    Depending on your sons age, that brings his cost to either $15 or $29 per day (child pass or young adult pass pricing)

    With that said, I can see how the IKON is much better for a Boston based skier than a CT/NY based skier as it more easily opens up the days at SR, SL and Loon to add to the mix. It would seem like Ikon should somehow get a NY resort into the mix.

    I'm sure a bunch of people were thinking it, but just chose not to post it.

    Agree. Sunday River is a nice option but much closer for Boston folks.

    Not looking for unrealistic pass; just want the Max Pass back lol.

    Sadly I think the Max pass was unrealistic...

    I agree with you there... the max pass had much more appeal to me than ikon or epic. I did the “add on” to our home mountains season pass and it was a great value.

    If I wasn't willing to day trip 3.5 I would never ski. Must be nice being 1.5 hours away from places bigger and less crowded than Wachusett or 2 from Crotched. They serve a purpose but need more options than that.
