Because Vail & Alterra have basically killed-off probably 75% to 90% of all the legitimate SOTC deals, either directly or indirectly.
Since the OP mentioned ski club deals I checked out the CT ski council's vouchers this season...only like 6 or 7 resorts participating. Literally every single major and several mid-sized ski areas participated in that program pre-Vail/Alterra.
A one day Epic pass is $69 currently, so $138 for 2 days, if you must go to Mt Snow.Vail is giving no ski club deals. I believe no group discounts either. My club does an early season trip to Mt. Snow and this year lift tix are $190 for a 2-day ticket bought in advance.
I suggested we go to Stratton instead. Most of us have Ikon.
There is such a thing as a 1-day Epic pass?A one day Epic pass is $69 currently, so $138 for 2 days, if you must go to Mt Snow.
I see $135 for a 2 day Epic, choose the one with restrictions and holiday blackouts. It's not a terrible price these days.There is such a thing as a 1-day Epic pass?
I probably won't go but I will "pass" this on to my ski club peeps. Thanks
Edit: Just checked. It's $88 per day and goes up some more after 10/14. No thank you. 2-years ago I think our cost was around $27. This is in early December when there is not likely to be a lot of open terrain.
Five and a half hours from Manhattan Penn Station to Rutland, and a dedicated connecting shuttle bus to Killingtondoes anyone actually take those trains for skiing? the only time's I've investigated its been insanely priced and at the most inconvenient times. like a train to rutland would be $200 roundtrip and take 12 hours to get there and then you first need a way up to killington
The Sunday train back from Rutland to NYC is since. Bus picks you up a Killington takes you to the train station at the end of the day and 5hr 45 minute train ride is nicer than 4hr and 45minute car ride after a long weekend of skiing. Train takes longer but to be able to stretch out, drink a beer and watch a movie on your laptop is really nice.does anyone actually take those trains for skiing? the only time's I've investigated its been insanely priced and at the most inconvenient times. like a train to rutland would be $200 roundtrip and take 12 hours to get there and then you first need a way up to killington
Not my first trip out west, but I took the train from Chicago to Colorado. A student special of some sort, insanely cheap.When I was young and stupid and there was no internet I took the train for my first trip out west to ski. I think because it was 100 bucks cheaper than the flight.
It was a nightmare! Ran out of food and bev immediately, stuck paying outlandish prices for probably a sixty hour train ride. No sleeper car. On the way home the train got stuck and they bussed us from Ohio up to Buffalo and put us on another train home. Some old guy died on the train at some point, watched them pull him from the luggage in Chicago... skiing out west for the first time was of course killer. We were so overdressed, long johns and such. Getting stuck in waste deep powder and giggling like school girls.....
