Yeah, I would ride just about anything right now. Tempted to fly out somewhere really soon.

It also takes me about 4 hours to snowshoe from here. Plus it costs a lot for gas with all those crazy roads. Hopefully it is a little better with my new truck, should only cost about $80 in gas. My old truck would usually cost well over $100. I hope gas prices stay cheap this winter so I can head out there more often. I also usually watch the weather really close when I plan to go there so I don't get stuck with some garbage conditions.

Going to pick up some 3 for all passes Mon night next week. I should have just bought the ridiculous pass.

I wish I had the extra cash when they were on sale because it would have saved me $50 last season. I have a trip to Colorado planned in January but I would like to have at least 10-15 days by then. Hoping the weather cooperates...

Ride 3+ days at Snowshoe and the ridiculous pass pays for itself.

You sound just like I used to be, ride all the local DC resorts a few trips a year to Snowshoe and some trips out west. Finally said fuck it and bought a condo at Snowshoe. Best thing I ever did.

Condos at Snowshoe are dirt cheap right now, if anyone can swing it you won't regret it.

I kept putting off the ridiculous pass purchase and it was over before I got to it.

I might have to look into getting a condo up there. See some fixer uppers listed for not a whole lot more than the cost of my new truck.

Exactly!

You can buy an efficiency at Silvercreek for low 30's and find 1 bedroom units in the low 40's.

Problem is the condo fees, but I look at that like being a car payment.

Are you talking about the 3 day pass for $100 dollars? They had that last year. Does anyone know if they will be selling those this year? Thank you

For sale right now, think they are $129 this year. Check out their website or Facebook.

Snowshoe is blowing snow like mad this weekend.

Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort - Official Website - Snowshoe, West Virginia - Live Web Cams

Hopefully setting up my Thanksgiving weekend trip this week! Need to get in touch with the lodge where I'm planning to stay and make sure they have reservations open for that night.

Don't get too excited, I don't think that snow will make it through the week.

Wait till the last minute to book for turkey day. It may not be worth it if they open at all.
