I bought a single day Epic pass to use at Stowe this winter...$67 in September. Even right now you could still buy that for only $70. But if you wait and want to buy a window ticket...then yes, you'll pay. A LOT.

I’m about done with this sport. I can see myself heading down to the Sonoran desert for winters in a few years.

Well I never thought I would see Sugarbush more expensive than Stowe. Wow.

I'd say this is a real opportunity for the smaller independent areas (what is left of them).

Even MRG is up to $97 for a day at walk up rates...

How many years has it been since any of you walked up to a window and bought an un-discounted day ticket?

for real. if you mosey up to a major ski resort the morning you plan to ski, you get what you deserve. plan a little in advance or patronize a reasonably priced indy. this isn't news nor is it new.

It will be interesting to see what impact, if any, this has on the number of people entering the sport. I know that there are still feeder hills, but those people are not going to want to take the once-a-year trip to Vermont now.

Very true. I've got several casual skier friends who do 5ish days a year. We can't all go to the big mountains anymore...it's nuts. Luckily I turned them onto the Indy pass so that's a godsend. But no more weeks renting a condo at a major resort *sigh*.
