one pass for both places. they are across the street from each other but bb is pretty far off of the road (and you used to have to pay a toll to get through a development) bb open all day with night riding, no night riding a JF.

take all of this for what its worth as its dated. i havent been there in at least 6 years or so.

i'm sure someone with more up to date info will chime in if i am wrong.

They are two resorts owned by the same management company and very close to each other; maybe within half a mile of each other. I usually go there because the trails are decent but best of all it does not usually get very crowded on weekends. This year it seems more crowded then it has been in past years though. I am not sure about one pass covering both places but they are so similar to each other there is not much reason to go to both. I think one of the two resorts may also have night sessions but I never like night sessions so I have not checked that out. I usually go to Jack Frost and the park is good although there are a lot of beginners falling all over the place that you have to avoid especially on weekends. I think Boulder also has a park.

I have a season pass here because they give a really good discount to college students. Anyway, During the Week, JF is open 9am-4pm and BB is open 3pm-9pm, 10pm on fridays. On the weekend, JF is open 8am-4pm and BB is open 8am-10pm. One pass will cover both, most people go to JF in the morning, then head to BB for night riding. You still have to pay the toll if you want to take the route through the development, but if you have a gps or something, you can easily go around it and it only takes like 10-15min to get from JF to BB.

As for the difference in the two mountains. JF is alot bigger than BB and has more challenging trails, (not that challenging, this is PA) and it only has one park in it. Which if you read my thread called "Respect?" you'll know what your getting into there. During the week though, its pretty empty, def better riding then the weekend so you might be ok. BB is smaller but is pretty much all park, lots of jumps and boxes and rails to hit there with a few trials in between. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions let me know.

I wonder how the snow is there. I see they are reporting packed powder but I bet it is getting a little wet with the warm weather we are having. My friends and I were also thinking of heading to JF this weekend. And if there is rain in the forecast that plan is out the window.

I was there this past Friday and Saturday and the snow was still good. No ice, but it's been a pretty warm week, I doubt it will be that nice this weekend. I'll prob be hitting up both JF and BB on Saturday. Hopefully the snow will hold up. As for the 45"-55" base depth they are reporting on their website, I think that's BS we're def getting close to the end of the season.

Thanks for the update. I was suprised how good the snow was 2 weeks ago when I was there but the warm weather this week probably had an effect. I was hoping to head to Europe for one last snowboard trip this year but that did not work out so I may do one more trip to JF before I put the board away.
