:-o

Those used to sell out in hours. If I didn't still have 2 days on my VT 4 pass I'd be all over this. If this happens again next year sign me up.

I mean shit... lets say you only get to the big hitters on the pass. Burke, Cannon, Smuggs, Whiteface, Magic, Bretton Woods, Gore, MRG. TEN BUCKS A DAY for some of the best ski resorts in the east. This is a STEAL.

What was the original price, and when do they usually go on sale?

I think they go for $140 or maybe more now...not sure. Still a good deal. Last time I bought one they went on sale the first week of October and usually sold out that day.

$150.

I used to buy it when it included Jay Peak as well. But now, for $150 I can do better with various other deals so I haven't bought it in a few years. Given last year & this year are the first two years they havent sold out, I imagine many others believe the same.

I stopped buying it for the same reason. But Jay tix can be cheap on liftopia (plus they're $45 with my Wachusett pass anyway) so I can see doing this next year. I bought the 4 pass mainly for Stowe, and I can certainly love without that (and spend $120 less) to get days at Cannon, Whiteface, Gore, etc instead.

They were very briefly $150 when they went on sale on or around Oct 15 (refer to page 2 of “Skiing on the Cheap Aggregate Sticky Thread”) before rising to $175. I’m in for one at the new price of $80 - thanks fahz !

I was actually thinking to myself if Jay were on this pass, it would pretty much cover every resort that isn't on Ikon, Epic, or Peaks. If they were to somehow make it into an Ikon type pass with multiple days at each resort I'd jump on that in a heartbeat. Drooling at the thought of having 7 days each at MRG, Magic, Smuggs, Jay, Burke, Cannon plus a northern NY trip and smaller places too. How sick would that be?

yea its a pretty dang solid group of indies/stateys

i am going to silverton co in 3 weeks for 3 ski days, and purchased their spring pass for $150 (plus an additional $40 for a single heli-drop).

that pass came with 3 freebies at smuggs and mad river (weekdays only at mrg). along with a ton of other indies across the country. awesome deal.

for $190 total i'll have 3 days at silverton, one heli drop, 3 days at smuggs, and one day at mrg. 7 days of skiing and a heli run for $190. so awesome.

hard for me to get to mrg on a weekday but i was able to ski an epic powder friday, in NOVEMBER. will get back to MRG once more on my skivt 4 pack.

This has been my worst ski season in years in terms of days skied. It is, however, my own fault for knocking-up my ski partner, and as such, I'm never going to get to Vermont enough to use my remaining inventory.

Selling remaining lift ticket vouchers at my total cost (+$2.25 per order for USPS First Class shipping with electronic tracking). Payment via PayPal. PM me if you're interested in any of them.

Mad River Glen (2 left) at $34 each

Smuggler's Notch (3 left) at $34 each

Jay Peak Resort (4 left) at $54 each

These can be used 7 days per week.
