    Stowe
    I wouldn't consider that list too confining!

    We'll live, but it's far fewer places than we normally get to. Plus no West trip.

    My wife's family lives close enough to Smuggs, Stowe, JP, and Sutton that we can get "free" family babysitting.

    With Magic, there's a lodge right on top of the hill that would be really convenient to stay at. I figure we can buy 1 lift ticket & each ski a 1/2 day while the other person stays in the lodge watching TV & babysitting. I've read that's what lots of people with infants do.

    Bretton Woods actually sells tickets for this...

    Family Interchangeable Tickets are available at any ticket window, Mom and Dad may purchase two identical alpine lift tickets at the single-ticket price. Only one may be used at any given time. Regular full-day daily ticket pricing applies.
    I'm sure it's possible other mountains do too...

    Hoping to get my 5 days at Sugarbush and Killington/Pico. Possibly hit Loon and Sunday River and Stratton as well.

    We are spending NYE in Quebec (brrr) and then skiing Mont Ste. Anne and Le Massif for a day each.

    Steamboat for a week in January.

    Jackson Hole for a Week in February.

    Mellow skiing week in Italy's Dolomites at Val di Fassa in March.

    May meet a friend out in SLC at some point.

    I lost 2007-2010 with an ACL and other knee and life issues. I also lost a season as a kid due to a broken hip. I feel ya.

    Also lost 02-03 due to shoulder surgery. ugh.

    I bought the Epic local passes this year and have so far planned Hunter, MRG, Stowe, Jay Peak, Keystone, Breckenridge, Vail, and Beaver Creek. We are going to do a trip in April as well at an epic resort in UT, CA, or Whistler in that order weather dependent. Sound be a fun year!

    How is that theft of services?

    It's still 1 person skiing all day & it's a husband & wife doing so solely for infant-care. And at least the hill makes money in this case rather than the hill making 0 money.

    Theft of services is when the guy takes the lift ticket & sells it in the parking lot at noon for $25, which takes $$$ directly out of the hill's pocket.

    If the ticket specifically says it is non-transferable (as most do), then he's right that it is technically theft of services. It doesn't matter whether or not you get money from it. If you give your ticket to a stranger in the parking lot it would be the same thing.

    Same reason you can't share a season pass even if there's only one person using it at a time.
