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?
Yeah that's the math I was doing. I live about two hours away, and while I plan to go often, I doubt I'll go exclusively to Stowe EVERY weekend. Maybe 90% of the time, with 10% for Jay Peak. But of all the weekends available, I can't imagine myself going more than 80% of the available weekends (need some rest and maybe a trip out west!).

So right there, it doesn't seem to add up? Season pass should be 300-400 cheaper in my opinion. I'd immediately purchase if it were $1200. No way in hell I'm paying $2000+ AFTER October 30. You crazy meng??
