what are the season pass prices like if u get em in the pre season... if they even have sales?
If you like variety, the best deal, bar none, is to join something like the CT Ski Council. You don't have to be a CT resident...I have several Mass friends who have joined. You join for about $35 (different local clubs have different rates, usually even cheaper than that), and your lift tickets are never more than $45. Most are in the $25-$35 range, for all the VT mountains -- Killy, Snow, Okemo, Jay, Burke, and the best deal ever, Stowe for $94 for a 3-day pass. Stowe is usually $84 A DAY. The caveat: they make deals with the mountains, and you have to ride where their deals are on any given weekend. For instance, Sun-Wed of this week, Stratton tix have been $35. Then Thur-Sat, Jay Peak for $30. Sun-Mon is Sunapee (NH) for $33. Stratton, Pico, Loon, Waterville, Ragged...it's the best freakin' deal on the planet. You just have to be willing to ride according to the ski club schedule. Like I said, if you like variety, it's the best thing going.
