Bronze valid on weekends early and late season is compelling. Any idea if the renewal discount applies if you step down a level? Go from silver to bronze?
I dont think it matters, when you get to the season pass page it just asks I need a pass or renew. renew pricing should be there

killington is only 'better' than sugarbush for ease of access, proximity to cheap lodging, and a serious commitment to early/late season

on snow sugarbush is better in like every category. i think that's objective. killington claims 3000 vertical but in practice its a bunch of pods with less than 1400 vertical. sugarbush is true 2000+ vertical

killington has better groomers. only on snow category i would give them. in bounds glades may be equal between the two places.
The best thing about Killington is all the gapers it absorbs that would otherwise go further north.

K blows bush away in snowmaking which for much of the season is a major factor. K blows bush away with it's spring scene and any sort of apres all season long. K is also much bigger than bush (not that bush is small) so it can be shitty icy conditions on one side of the mountain and awesome conditions on another side.

K is better than SB for one big reason...it is not an unlimited destination on the IKON pass.
