Thanks for the advise so far guys. I brought an epic local pass on some advise on this forum to make it cheaper for the few weeks I am there. It covers Breck that you mention, and Vail, Keystone and A basin. We are staying in Frisco but just using the public transport so if the store is at one of the resorts it would probably be do-able. I was keen to have it all sorted before I arrived but this method does have its benefits, hmmmmm more stuff to think about, how to make all this work (I need to get a new board for the wife also).
