We are staying in PC cause the person planning the trip is mainstream so PC is like the "marketed place".
But we tagged along incase of a storm dump and the roads are closed we would have a ski-able zone. Plus we getting 4 nights for about 220.
I understand the Ushape driving we will be doing.
POW MOW cat rides for 18 dollars is really intriguing me. ok i will most likely hold off on the advance tickets so i dont get stuck or anchored down.
discount shops: (check)
i will def look at that super pass!
