    I haven't been on here in give or take a year -- trust me it's been great. Kind of like quitting Facebook. I did start lurking again a couple weeks ago to see if anything was coming up in the new Skiing on the Cheap thread. Personally, I am curious when the Fox44 / MyChamplainValley card becomes available and resorted to checking this forum again.

    So this is funny. But I do remember part of the reason I left was somebody starting talking about tax cheating and bringing up my family and failure of moderators to put a lid on it. This is totally false and I felt better to walk away and reconsider how I spend my time on the internet rather than try to defend completely random accusations for the benefit of a few self-proclaimed famous internet skiers.

    This was shortly after I compiled the best Skiing on the Cheap thread seen on this forum last season, and I decided to make a clean break from the bullshit here and just enjoy skiing without involving the same dozen faceless internet personalities in my hobby. Folks I'd never have a beer with IRL and don't even appreciate actually decent people trying to have a nice forum experience and share info without the hostility and negativity.

    And yet I've logged back in. Bait away. Just wanted to clear up that shit. NY Dirt Bag doesn't know a single thing about me and my identity, that's part of the problem on this forum frankly is people are allowed to get away with harassment like that. People get away with shit like that behind a keyboard but not in real life.

    Hey bdfreetuna, hope you will return in some limited form ... the skiing on the cheap compilation last year was awesome and I really enjoyed your posts about skiing with your dad and hidden trails like the Poma line at Pico. Plus it was nice to have someone else from Western Mass here.

    So the Vermont 4-pass is $189 now. Isnt that an increase?

    I'm gonna' have to pass on that pass at this point, as $47.25 per ticket isnt that great of a deal anymore. It's more like a decent deal.

    Sure, it's awesome for a day at Stowe, but most of those other places can be had for less.

    I thought it was more than that last year (for some reason I was thinking $199) but not totally sure...

    I also bought it last year just for the cheap(er) day at Stowe. Hadn't been in 10 years. Enjoyed some terrific runs on Lookout and in Goat Woods, had a few cold brews in that cool old bar in the Mansfield Lodge (at the end of the day because there's no way I'm hiking up that f*cking hill twice), and it was one of the better days of the year, but I also realized I can live without Stowe perfectly fine. I can go to the other places that I would use the pass at (Jay, Smuggs, MRG, Burke) for $40 or less with all the available discounts out there. I hate the feeling of being pressured to "save" the pass for good days and then run out of time if it's a bad spring.
