Question Anyone go to JFBB?

Anybody go to Jack Frost Big Boulder? I know they aren't the biggest mountains, but I can get a college pass for $320. Not a bad deal for an unlimited pass. What you guys think?

probably one of the easiest to get to from philly. i like jf/bb but, i honestly havent been there in years. their park is supposed to be really nice now. i say go for it. $320 for a season pass is pretty good.

jf during the day- bb at night for the park stuff. I do JF with the gf in the am then drop her off and hit up bb myself for the jumps and rails. there are some seious jumps there. for 20 bucks its some nice early season stuff. for someone looking to really ride a mountain, not quite worth it.

hey buddy i go to jfbb all the time i cant wait for them to open. 320 is a good deal seeing as a season pass there run about 600 bucks. i use to work in a snowboard shop and would get season passes there for $100 bucks and would get free lift tickets to blue and bear creek. cant wait for the season to start around here i just got a ton of new gear. see ya on the slopes

I go there a lot early in the season, mostly because they open before anyone else. I get a season pass to Blue, but I still try to get around and check out other PA mountains. That deal for $320 is pretty sweet.

Awesome. I'm prob gonna be picking this up because I don't have tons of money to drop. A cheap season pass will let me get out hopefully about once a week. I got three buddies who are gonna do the same, so I'll have a nice group to ride with. Let me know if you guys wanna meet up some time. I'm not an expert rider, but I would say that I'm about intermediate. I haven't really explored the park a whole lot though. That's my goal for this season.

I really like Jack Frost. The runs have alot of turns and pitch changes that keep it interesting. Difficulty level increases nice and uniform from one side of the mountain to the next, too. Schlepping across the flat at the top of the hill to get from run to run is the only minor downside to that great mountain. I'm not as keen on Big Boulder, with the exception that you can ride nights there, unlike JF. The solution is to hit JF during the day, and if you're not worn out by then, head to BB for the night.
