Price Chopper 3 Packs now available:
http://www2.pricechopper.com/orderform/skipass.shtml

Whiteface and Gore, here I come!

Has anyone ordered one of these passbooks from Price Chopper yet? I ran into two problems:
  1. The website may not be secure, since it doesn't begin with https. Can it be trusted?
  2. Before a post on SnowJournal called my attention to the security issue, I tried to make a purchase w/o success. Might have been a problem b/c I was using a family member's AdvantEdge card # but my credit card. Got an error message. I phoned yesterday (Thursday 11/11) and they said they'd check with IT and get back to me.

Just gotta sign up for a newsletter. Doesn't mention any restriction on actually even being a DMB Fan or anything so it does not seem fan club related? Check your spam folder for the ticket. Seems like your choice if you confirm your email or not?

Hey Woody - I got one last year, and had no problems with security or IT issues. One word of caution, though - When you arrive at the resort to redeem one of the vouchers, hand them the entire booklet, and they will tear out one of the vouchers for you. From what I've heard, some of the ski areas are real sticklers about that.

Have fun at Whiteface and Gore, both great places to ski!

Picked up one of the free pico tickets, never been there. Surprised to see looking at their stats that it is close to 2000' vertical, does it actually ski that 'big'?

Rarely would you ski T2B... no T2B lift. Typically you'd lap the pod around each chair for awhile and move on to the next pod.
