What's the better pass MSLM or Blue?

I can't do a 5x7 since I can only snowboard on weekends (work.)

So which would you pick, MSLM or Blue? MSLM is $579 and blue is $699 right now.

Will you day trip or stay overnight? Blue is better for weekends away, has more terrain. MSLM is closer to Toronto, if it's day trips I'd go there. Overall I prefer blue due to steeper terrain on north end.

I'm zero per cent park, that may matter to you.

It would be all day trips. I guess I'm just trying to justify the pice difference.

The difference in the pass is nothing compared to how much more you'll be spending in gas if it's all day trips and you're planning on going a lot. (unless of course you carpool/bus/etc.)

As far as the hill goes, no comparison:

- Blue = 720 ft vert and 250 acres or so (not sure if that includes the new area, I don't think so)

- MSLM = 550 ft vert and 185 acres or so

From what I remember, MSLM seemed far busier...

Blue is about half an hour further than mslm. I found mslm to be less busy. I didn't enjoy the short runs at mslm but the conditions there were great last year. Maybe I'll get a mslm pass and a blue 5x7.

You can still ride weekend nights at Blue with a 5x7

or another option could be Horseshoe @ $439

Remember that the advantage that Blue once had over MSLM was night riding. MSLM now has lights as well, so if you are looking to avoid the crowd issue, you can always start your day later in the afternoon when the masses head home, ride into the evening when the hill has far less traffic.

Pouts has given you the hill perspective. The question for you is how much do you value the extra vertical and terrain for the extra drive time / gas cost?

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.
