Once again you left out info as well as words. :razz:



Mountsnow youth pay there age this Sunday. So if a youth is 19 years old they pay $19. Which is a great deal and probably bring out lots of teens and familys. So I was asking if some regular MT Snow people think it will be very crowded, I have my price Chopper book so I can go to Gore instead and am thinking about doing that.

Wow, $44 a bottle, who'd a thunk it, amazing. Anyone ever had Goebel's beer, we used to buy it for $4.95 a case. It was pretty watery, reminded me of Coors.

Oh yes I have had Goebel's back in the late 80's. I also drank generic "BEER" from Purity Supreme. White can - black letters "BEER" that was it on the can. good stuff!

Nacski is running a bus January 12 to Sunday River for $76 for bus ride and full day lift ticket after a $26 Facebook coupon code from their Facebook page. Coupon is only good til 1/9 though. Get there at Woburn at 5 am or Braintree at 4:30 am and let the bus do the rest of the work. It's pretty nice as you get there around 8:30 am which is 1-2 hours earlier than other Boston area bus services. A little more expensive than their $68 rate for the first 25 seats last year but still a good deal overall (and you don't have to pay for parking unlike their biggest competitor).

I would make it if I could but it doesn't look like it would work for me right now.

This year I am getting the Attitash / Wildcat Vertical Value card. I like both mountains and I like staying in North Conway. It costs $89; but, that includes your first lift ticket. The first time you use it you start saving $$$. Savings any day, even holidays, Mid-weeks you only pay half price, check out either website for details.

It's a good price if you can use the tickets. I almost hit the buy button until, upon close examination of the "book", almost all of the tickets are only good for M-F!!! :(

(since I don't get paid when I'm not working, it cost me a lot more than the lift ticket to ski mid-week...)

Quite a shame since I like this pack more than the one I bought last year (but last year's offer was much more useful, vouchers good for Sun-Fri instead of M-F)
