Thanks for the replies, it looks like Welch is cheaper on the lift ticket side and I can buy them on-line before I leave for $35
One problem I think my son is losing interest in the sport, he is tired of going down the little hill in Iowa. He loved Colorado two years ago but that is a long haul and expensive.
I would be driving from Des Moines IA
I am not sure what to do but try other hills north of us .
