How close are you to the mountain? Assuming 4.5 total months of being open (late november to early april), you'd have to go 4 to 5 times each month to break even. Basically every weekend.
That is a lot of snowboarding if you aren't very close to the slopes.
The question you should ask yourself is this:
Will you be more upset if you pay ~$200 extra over an entire season if you don't get the pass and go 23 or 24 times or would you be more upset if you pay $1653 and only ride 15 times?
Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."
