Monarch, no traffic, no hassle, no contest. It's a great mountain with plenty to entertain you and you want have to deal with the I70 Summit county shit show.

I was stuck in a similar dilemma last month.. bought Coppermountain/winterpark then had a sudden itch to ride at keystone at night. I wound up buying Keystone/Breck/A-bay/vail as well! The good thing is, Copper/Key/Breck decided to open 3weeks earlier than usual (I guess all of the resorts decided to open earlier). Hoping for a good snow year!

I just hope I have enough weekends to cover all mountains...

oh yeah, I think you would be better off with Breck/Key/A-bay, best value.. good long runs, solid parks.

you've gotta be shitting me, in southeast michigan (closest place to ride for me) the passes are over $500 and atleast one of the ski "resorts" are built on garbage landfills cus theres no hills. how much does a day lift ticket cost if the season pass is 98? I thought lift tickets were getting up to like $70 out there

Let's just say that it's one of the perks of being in the Army, stationed in Colorado. But regular price would be in the middle to high $300s.

That's cheaper than a 4-pak... I'm joining the ARMY! Personnally, I'd get Loveland... because you get 3 days at Monarch for free. Then you get the best of both worlds.
