However like I always say if your cheap stay home if you really love snow and fun and being around others of the same likings this type of package would be great! Hell I might even go if you could put something together...

The real trick to these types of events is being able to organize, coordinate, communicate and implement what you say you will do with the resort and others who are going. The sign up process has to be easy and money transfers as well...

And if you dont get 20 no big deal Hell I started with 10 people six years ago.
Just keep at it and you will be fine

Ohhh and here lol..throw up a pic every now and then...Who knows a new member might read this, see some photos and want to ride a place like Mammoth.....



It will grow and people will want to come back if you put in the effort that shows that...
,
Thanks for the reply! Yeah this is during spring break so there are most definitely cheaper dates! Thank you for the advice, I will ask if they can make exceptions for the group discount rule. I'll keep everything you said in mind, thanks again.

Hostels, no. Very cheap hotels a free shuttle ride away from the lifts? Yes. however at dear tylers request Im not going to be all negative ;-)

if someone wants to start a thread about how to do mammoth on the cheap feel free to start one. Ill be happy to contribute.

Sales discount still applies towards the lift ticket so its not that big of an issue, but regardless of how I feel that is a topic appropriate for a different thread as you said

FYI, season pass holders can get discounted tickets for friends. "Bring a Friend Pass" are about 1/2 price a full lift ticket. that plus 9 people crammed into a hotel room would


not be the scope of this thread.

That looks like a long ass line to ride on a double chair lift. I can't stand the slow 2 seaters.

Oh man.... deal killer.

That was one of my factors that weighed heavily on where we bought our season passes this year.

Guess I'm spoiled....

Mountain looks fun though!

I think expense wise its going to be hard for any Cali or PNW people to make a Utah or Colorado meet or vise vesa. Im down with anything in Colorado or Utah as it will fit my budget.

sounds cool for a buddy or two who has a season pass, don't see how that will apply when getting people from a forum site + others to meet up. I'd have to find a workable ratio of passholders:non-pass holders, making it harder on the rest of the group who would rely on the group discount, and myself when trying to organize everything. And what if we go to Tahoe region? As MPDSnowman said, if you're trying to go as cheap as possible, then maybe this isn't the best option for you. Again, looking for constructive feedback, not deconstructive. Don't want to get negative on this hype, but I shouldn't have to ask multiple times...
