    Mount Snow - 1 Day Early Season 11/15. Haven't been here since the ASC days
    Killington - Probably once or twice early season, and hopefully spring skiing
    Magic - Most weekends and holidays will be there
    Stratton - Close to house, early season groomers and days made for snowmaking (refreeze after rain)
    Pico - Want to get up there 1 Day after new years to show kids
    Bush - Another After new years day trip. Spent so much time up there during college, want to show wife and kids the area.
    Bolton - probably won't make it, but would love squeezing in a good snow day there
    Platty - same as Bolton
    Big Sky - Preznits week booked
    A Basin - Hopefully a long weekend in Late April

    I have an Ikon and Magic pass and a place in So Vt so I am based out of there. Probably 30 ish days.

    Same reason you can't share a season pass even if there's only one person using it at a time.
    Technically it probably is... although I doubt most mountains would give a couple with a newborn much grief for doing this.

    We did Pico passes and Ikon Base...

    For Sure:
    Pico
    Killington
    Winter Park
    Copper

    Potentially Suicide 6, Queechee and Okemo (If my kids decide to do any races).

    Maybe mix it up a bit and do Sunday River and Sugarbush to see some friends.

    So what you're saying is that on a day I only feel like skiing a half day, I could just split a lift ticket with a ski buddy, and the mountain would be OK with that if I tell them we have a baby?
    Sugarbush skier since 1985.........Think Snow!

    Parents of newborns sharing a ticket is so commonly done I didnt even know it's not allowed at some places. Which I suspect it really isn't if the policy will never be enforced. Good luck handling that PR thermonuclear bomb!

    But besides the potential PR nightmare it's just stupid business to not let parents of a newborn ski on a lift ticket for infant care. The money from selling 1 lift ticket & a couple of lunch meals is better than $0.00.

    No, because that would simply be a lie.

    Could you buy a Senior ticket if you "tell them" you're 70 years old? No, because that would simply be a lie.

    Unless the mountain wants you to pay for baby-sitting AND two tickets... (I doubt it)

    Anyway, how is it typically done? Do you just go to the ticket office and ask them to please take the ticket off your jacket and put it on your wife's?
