    That's crazy expensive. I got a magic and an ikon pass for that.

    Actually, they used to have a T-shirt on the wall in the Lodge that said Aspen of the East. I almost lost my shit when i saw that. I hate the place.

    There’s a distinct difference between Aspen and Vail.



    Windhamites can’t decide which it is?

    The Brits I talk to on the lift come here for the language, the hospitality, and shopping in NYC; they rotate trips with Europe. I talk to folks from FL & DC that flew to VT or frequently BOS. Many that do have family to visit in the Northeast. You also see a fair bit of Canadians that came from Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, etc, many drive but some fly. I've also seen Bermuda. I've seen Alaska license plates in the lot!

    I think they are!
    Nice town and restaurants though. 14 miles from Hunter. If you can force yourself to drive by Vesuvios's without just stopping there.
    NEVER SUMMER!

    So I was pleasantly surprised when I checked out Crotched's window prices for tickets for the coming season. Weekend tickets went up only $2 from $69 to $71 and weekdays went from $55 to $61. Online tickets are still discounted to $45-$55 for most weekends. I don't know what Mount Snow was last year, but I think that the daily window rate of $118 has to be a decent increase. Online tickets are currently available from $40-$60.
    I wonder if the online discounts will change after the sale is closed.

    Last year at Mount Snow the window rate was $110 according to https://www.newenglandskihistory.com...cketprices.php

    Unless they had not raised prices for several years, I would not view 3% & 11% increases positively.

    A $2 increase with online discounts intact at the Crotch is a lot better than I expected. Wawa, an independent area is also going up by $2 from $71 to $73, just saying. I don't have the time to look up other major areas, because I don't ski them. Crotched is a local mountain, not a resort.
