    When we first had passes, we used to ski a lot. Then it kinda became like a job. We're a lot more selective now with weather and conditions. We still get our value out of our passes; 4 days on the hill and we break even.

    (there are decent xc skiing even in southern VT. But the trail fee are as much as 1/2 of daily lift tickets! )
    XC skiing right at Stratton and Mt Snow. Real good - and cheap ($20's) - not too far from Stratton at Wild Wings (Peru) and Viking (Londonderry).

    What I really SHOULD be doing is cut back on skiing downhill (yes, sacrilege!) when condition is just so so, travel less, and stay close to home to ski Mohonk!

    But I guess I'm still stuck on the phase of going to places because it's "free", especially it's places I don't get to do normally without spending an arm and a leg.

    I'm hoping the novelty will eventually wear off, and I'll be back to doing what is good for me rather than what's good for the resorts. (not that I "contribute" all that much to the resorts' bottom line: my ski lunch is typically just a soup, no drinks no fries, I even bring my own cocoa pack! Yep, certifiable el cheapo)
