I'll put it this way: I am an AVID snowboarder. I have been salivating over the fact that it's only like two months away from the start of the local season. It just kills me to have to fill up the gas tank every other day during snowboarding season Any advice or suggestions?
If you're going to ride a lot I'd get a pass at Showshoe, which is far and away the best resort in the area. We're not in VA right now, but when we get back that's what I plan on doing…and we're in Gloucester, 4 and a half hours away. The Snowshoe pass is unlimited too! Which the way I understand it, means it's good for ALL weekends and holidays as well as during the week. To my knowledge, Wintergreen doesn't do that. It comes with other discount bennies too. It's $429 if purchased before 31 Oct…$279.00 for college students. Pretty good deal if you ask me!
