Blue Mountain Anyone?

Any of you guys regulars at Blue Mt. in PA? This is my 2nd year as a season pass holder, love the mountain but I wish they had a few more features at each park. Looking forward to opening day in a couple of months.

I had a season pass last year. I'm not getting one this year though just because I'm going to try to do more traveling and give myself some more variaty. Blue mountain is pretty good for PA though and I liked skipping the lines with the season pass and the new lift scanners. I just hate that I live 90 minutes away.

Yea that's the one bad thing about a season pass is that you feel you need to go there every weekend to get your money's worth. Luckily I bought mine at the end of last season so it was cheap. I plan to make a few trips up to VT, Maine, and 1 trip out west.

Are you in north or south Jersey? Would Mt. Creek be closer for you?.....never been there.

Nice, I actually live in suburbs of Philly....Quakertown to be exact so its really only a 35-40min drive for me. You gonna make the trip up to Buckmans grand opening in Whitehall on 10/14? I hear they are supposed to have a bunch of pro riders on site for the day.

I probably live right near rgrwilco. I'm 15 minutes from Philly so Mountain Creek is actually farther from me. I just transferred to Rutgers, but in New Brunsick which is more North Jersey so I'll have to hit Mountain Creek cause I've never been there.

I held my season pass at bear creek last year and after becoming too frustrated with the absurdley small size of bear i'm going to get one at blue this season.

I'm plagued with the 90 minute drive as well as I live in Coatesville down near the mason-dixon line.

Pretty psyched though. I'll probably hate it by the end of the season but regardless i'll still love that its coverd with that magical white stuff.

Doing a few trips as well this year so i can get out of the small-ness of PA. One to Jay Peak, one to Jackson Hole, and another possible to Arapahoe, or somewhere in summit county CO.

Maybe we can meet up on the hill sometime. Countin down the days til the season!

Yea I don't blame you, I live 30min from Bear Creek also and don't enjoy riding there at all. I'm actually getting married there June 2012, it's very nice during the summer...we are going to have a snowboarding theme haha, go figure!

The VIP line pass that comes with the season pass at Blue makes it all worth it, you never wait more than a few minutes even on busy holidays!

Def hit me up when the season gets closer and we can ride! Ordering my Never Summer Revolver very soon
