Do you not work? Only way I could have done that many days last year would be if I worked at a hill... Which wouldn't both me at all. I'm hoping for 50 days this year...

LOL snow valley is where I did my first turns on a real snowboard (not a plastic Canadian Tire board) they used to have a little half pipe and some jumps but I haven't been there in probably 15+ years.
Blue's 5x7 pass is a pretty good deal, I had it for about 5 years in a row. $175 or so and you get a full pass except weekend days. If you can get any kind of modified work schedule then it works great, head up on a Monday-Tuesday and board all over an empty hill.
Bought my season pass for this year back in June. The early bird rate was $1300... Seems steep but that includes some of the best resorts in the rockies. Fernie, Lake Louise, and Kicking Horse.
Now it's time to start praying to the snow gods (oh yeah it's already snowed on top of some of the mountains out here, there's a reason I jumped at the chance to move from Ontario!)
