Haha Yeah it is a small hill out here in the PA/NJ/NY area.

I shouldn't say small, it is one of the "bigger" ones in the area...http://www.skicamelback.com/Camelbac...Trail-Map.aspx yes there are smaller! It will be my time there and first full season. I figure it is better to improve here. I picked up an anytime weekday pass (includes weekends after 3pm and in march it will be for anytime)for only 199!

I think they had the name before the Water pack camelback was invented.

Sounds awesome man. I spent most of my snowboarding life with the same style pass (weekday and weekend nights) at Blue mountain in Ontario. About the same vertical feet and tons of high speed lifts so got lots of laps in!!!

That's the only plus with Camelback. You can get up and down in no time. Jack frost is definitely more challenging

Here's how it breaks down between CB & JF. Frost definitely has some terrain that is a little more interesting....IF it snows. If it hasn't, then it can be an ice rink. So, if it dumps, go check out Jack Frost, if it's just a regular day, take the sure thing at Camelback.

Here is a bunch of pics from Frost when it's been dumped on...Jack Frost 1-12-2011 - Jack Frost & Big Boulder - paskiandride

I did a thread about the same thing but VS jfbb....didnt see this thread!

I was gna scoop up that $199 value pass as well bc honestly u cant beat what they are giving u opposed to jfbbs $399 price tag for the same thing MINUS 50% off bring a friend (which in my case would be stellar since not all my friends would go avidly)

I hvent been to CB in YEARS and id like to pick up a pass for a season for that price...i wont feel bad paying the $199 but super guilty paying $399 hahahah

Camelback opening Saturday with two runs. I may give it a shot for an hour or two to see how my gimpy ass no acl knee feels.

Long range... looks like some snow could be in the forecast the week of the 10th which is way to early to tell but hey, we can hope.

Oh and meant to add... not sure I'd describe anywhere at JF or CBK as challenging per se, but agree JF can probably be a bit more fun/interesting in snow with the open mt approach they take there. On CBKs behalf, as bad as it was last year I got in a couple mid-week days where I was amazed at how well they did with the mountain snowmaking wise.

Windham is opening tomorrow with 7 trails. About the same 2 hours travel time from NYC and much better terrain than CB.

Windham can't beat CB value pass tho. If I was going to go to windham, I would choose Hunter for the tougher terrain and slightly better snow coverage
