I always figured, a ton of riding at a bad hill is better than a little riding at a good hill.

If I can get good riding crap, imagine the blast when you go somewhere good - great.

That is my plan. I am still new and have only been to Vermont for a look at good snow. Otherwise Mostly PA riding is what I have done. My plan is to just keep riding anywhere that has snow and take a big trip out to either Tahoe or maybe somewhere in Co or Utah when I get better.

I'm in the Mid-West and my local hill is a huge Chicago bus trip destination. So very small hill to start with, big crowds, and we can have very if'y conditions. I started riding 3 years ago at 42yr, and progressed quite well. Having fun just to be riding, there were days we bailed do to conditions but never crowds. Like I said would rather ride 6 of 7 days a week at times then 6 times a year at a good-great resort. I was able to get 30+ days on the hill last season even with our shitty winter we had.

You have a good plan, ride and get better and enjoy a real trip somewhere doesn't need to be cross country. We have traveled to much better resorts roughly 3 hour one way trip and had a blast. Wish I could afford out west but we try to take several local day trips to some of the better hills that we can get to.

I'll be buying a college pass (works for grad school...) for Sugarloaf and possibly a week college pass at Jackson Hole if my friend lets me crash out there... Other than that, some tickets at Camelback or Elk mountain in PA.

I'm also getting the three mountain pass to Loon, SundayRiver and SugarLoaf as soon as the college pass goes on sale, which I think is in November. I'll mostly be using it for Loon, probably will only make it out to SR and SL once or twice this season.
I usually get the bronze pass at Wachusett, though last season I sprung for the silver, but the season was so short it was barely worth the upgrade. I may just go for the bronze again.

For weekend trips, I like to keep my options open so I don't go to any specific mountain enough to justify another pass.

Thanks, I appreciate the offer, though I usually use my friend's company's group code. Though if you need more people (or if it helps otherwise ), I could use yours instead...

I picked up a Bash Badge for Smuggler's Notch....$99
It gets me 1/2 price lift tickets ( all season,no blackouts), $15 afternoons (noon to 4)
Its a little over 1/2 hour drive from home.

You can't idiot proof anything because fools are so damn clever.
