Good point up top but we're not talking about Magic and Tenney... they are the pure antithesis of this discussion.
Paid $22.50 again at Berkshire East today... great conditions practically hero snow, everything skiable except the woods, blasting snow all over the mountain. Next year I'm recalibrating my ski season to devote 1/2 of my days to Berkshire East.
So they aren't exactly losing $$$ by selling me cheap day passes. By delivering a great product so cheap and so close they've practically stolen my business away from bigger Vermont resorts.
Good to know about BE. Never been there but picked up the Indy Pass this year to check it out. Looking at some time in early Feb.
