Is it worth getting a season pass here for a newbie at the current rate? I would go fairly often but how much are lift tickets usually?

Divide the cost of a pass by the number of times you realistically expect to ride this season. If it's more than a normal day pass, don't get a season pass. If it's less.... do. All their rates should be on their website.

If you live close enough and go often...then yes. It's one of the better mountains in the area.

If I remember right, durin the peak hours, a ticket is something like $60

How long have you been riding? Or is this the first time?
If its the first time.. go once or twice to make SURE you really wanna snowboard and that it IS for you (i cant think of any reason why you wouldn't love it)..

For me.. I get a season pass to Wisp (Maryland), i'm only about 40 minutes from there and I go every Saturday and Sunday.

I'd say get the pass! It'll give you a good reason to wake up and go shred, for free (well, after you purchase the pass..)

I loved that place when I went, wish it was closer to me honestly. I guess Wisp is the best spot that's closest to me, Timberline-Canaan Valley are closeby too. Snowshoe's a hike and for what it'd cost me I might as well go to NY or something lol

Default Blue/CBK

Blue has a better park, Camelback has better trails. CBK requires a $10 parkpass and the manditory viewing of the burton safety film, on premises. The park is free at Blue, and in my opinion, it's the best place to learn the basics in Eastern PA. Although both Shawnee and Mountain Creek South have significantly larger features in their parks, neither of them get any snow so the conditions always suck. Blue usually has an adequately spaced jumpline with a couple 15-20 footers, culminating in a 30+ footer. And they make a lot of snow.

I`ve never quite understood how the measurement of jumps work... Let`s say you have a 30-footer, does it mean you need to jump 30+ feet to clear the knuckle of the jump?

Yes. You can only really give a range though. Conditions are constantly changing. Some have flatter projections than others.
