Question Meadows or Fusion Pass??

I need some help deciding on where to get my season pass. I have ridden both Timberline and Meadows, more at timberline though, and never been to Ski Bowl. So far only Meadows has posted their prices and it will be $339 for me. I've managed to pack all my work and school into Monday-Wednesday (School during day, work over night). So I'll be free to ride Thurs-Sun. What do you guys think? I love how uncrowded Timberline is but the terrain is pretty mellow. How are the crowds at Meadows on weekdays? What are you experiences with Ski Bowl?

Maybe I'll just say fuck it and buy both passes

Last year with an El Nino I said Meadows to people. It was a good choice.

This year with La Nina either pass should work out well for you. Terrain at the Bowl is great but it takes low snow levels for it to be really good (which didn't happen last season). Don't plan on running hot laps, the lift structure is older than you are. The old lifts do work to your advantage in one way. It takes a lot longer for it to get skied out than Meadows.

Weekdays at Meadows are fine, unless it dumps and then it looks like a weekend until 1:00. If it's dumping all day you can get some sweet turns late in the day after the 1/2 dayers have left and before the night crew shows up.

I think the Fusion pass is usually about the same price as the Meadows early pass.

Thanks guys! I think I'm going with Meadows. I'm not that into park so it looks like Meadows fits my type of riding best.

Good call! I just got a Meadows Pass. The terrain is definitely better, and their park it getting there. I read their blog and it seems they are putting more emphasis on park this year. I think they;re even getting a rope tow for the railpark/beginner park. It doesn't really matter to me because my friends and I like natural features like cut-ins, hips, and kickers. We always ride weekends, due to the fact that we have classes, and it's never really been a problem. The only time it was busy was when it dumped all day Friday and Saturday was clear. Everyone and their grandma had to make up for not boarding all year.
