I'm 33.

That's impressive skiing 17+ days at Sugarbush coming up from NJ.

I might go for a pass if I literally lived within a few minutes of a really good mountain. But I'm able to ski at about $40/day with a lot of freedom (and deal hunting). I have a complimentary Cumberland Farms gas card as well so that takes away a lot of the sting of traveling further distances.

Magic definitely takes the cake when conditions are nice and I don't really feel like spending half the day driving.

My goal is around 40 days. I only had 28 last year and just under 40 the 2 prior years.

Yes it is a long drive every weekend, but you quickly get used to it and it becomes quite routine (and oh so worth it once you get out on the mountain).

I feel the same way about the drive & reward. Goal is usually around 40 days. I came up a couple days short myself last season (37). All in central/northern VT. driving from Brooklyn, NY except 1 day at Stratton in southern VT. I try to get up every other week for a few days between Dec.-Apr.

I'm not really big into skiing at any one place too many times in a season. Have never bought a pass for any mountain. I tend to look for the deals which allow me to ski all over especially in VT. I have about 25 days in an average season to ski.

The most attractive offers to me which would get me to ski a mountain more than it's usual share are good deals on 4-packs or other similar ticket bundles. Or if I see you at the Boston Ski Show and you have some kind of special going on along those lines.

For me I would probably only buy a season's pass if I knew it would come out to under $30 each day of skiing, as a maximum.

But part of the fun of skiing for me is going to all different places each season so I'm probably not the target audience for your *very good* season's pass deals.


Makes perfect sense! I used to do the same thing and go to as many different mountains I could before I really got into Magic. I only ask because I'm from Wilbraham and you're about 20-30 minutes closer.

Definitely! Could not agree more.

Planning on Oct 8th volunteer day. I am up the weekend prior too so I might do a solo commando raid on a favorite creek bed that needs thinning....

Well let's just say that one shirt was a "non-sanctioned version" of the Stratton logo...
