Yesterday was day 20 for me, so here is my season so far. We try to go on the cheap as much as possible without buying a season pass, so I keep track of the cost at the same time.

11/23 okemo $66
11/25 bretton woods $0
11/26 wildcat $49
12/3 bretton woods $0
12/7 bretton woods $0
12/13 bretton woods $0
12/14 cannon $25
12/26 gunstock $43
12/29 gunstock (night) $17
12/30 gunstock $43
12/31 wildcat $79
1/11 wildcat $79
1/14 black mountain $25
1/18 park city $139!
1/19 brighton $79
1/21 gunstock $43
1/25 sunapee $35
2/1 gunstock $37
2/4 bretton woods $12
2/8 wildcat $40


that park city ticket is killing my average. i usually end up with a $33-35 ticket by the end of the year, right now i'm a little over $40.

Yeah, Vail does not like folks buying day tickets at the window. There are no longer any good discounts either for PCMR. I hate to say it, but Deer Valley is CHEAPER and better!

Deer Valley doesn't like me. They don't let me on the mountain. :( Next time we're going to try Powder Mountain and Snowbird. Brighton was phenomenal, will probably go back there too.

Ah, got it. Yeah, Snowbird is completely different from PCMR.

I snowboard. Deer Valley doesn't approve.
As for the BW tickets, if you go to closing day, it's under $20 and you also get a free ticket for early next season. This year it expired 12/16. So I fill the van and bring a bunch of people. Then next fall, as all those people are busy and not ready to admit it's winter, I hit them up for the free ticket because they aren't going to use it. BW is also 2fer on Wednesday. Also, if you to expo, you can pre buy midweek tickets for $35. I have 4 of those waiting. That $12 ticket was from when my buddy scored 2 free tickets, but there was 3 of us. So we split one of my midweek prebuys. My wife loves BW so I've done a ton of work to do them on the cheap.

The two Wildcat tickets are not helping either.

It's worth it though. When conditions aren't stellar, I kinda choose where I go based off of price. That makes it more bearable for me to pay full price when a certain mountain has better conditions. Wildcat is my favorite, I used to get their vertical value card, but now it's now longer. Luckily my friend just found that his company gets a corporate discount, so from here on its $40.
