Default I'm Scared

How do you Colorado guys afford to ride all the time. The ticket prices are insane. I'm moving near Steamboat at the end of March. I guess I'll have to give up all my hobbies except ridin'

Plus I'll force the wife to get a job too

Season pass definitely makes things a lot easier if you go a lot, it's still expensive as hell but you pay it off quickly.

Season passes to the Summit resorts aren't too bad at all. The CO pass was about $450 or so and the Super Pass (includes 6 days at Steamboat) is $550. They all more than pay for themselves after 5 days of riding.

Unfortunately, there is no cheap Steamboat season pass.

Season pass out here in Oregon is sold in a 4x4 for the most reasonable price for people 22-55 or somewhere in that range..you need 4 people to sign up for season passes at 444 dollars(was 400 last year)...its some retardedly high price if you dont get other people to sign up with you.

Seriously thinkin about doing the Timberline/Skibowl Fusion pass next year for the same price, but you dont need other people. Gets you passes to both resorts, and Skibowl has some of the best night ski terrain in the west so i could go all the time after work. And timberline is just high as hell up on the mountain with tons of snow for those big powder days...

Problem is meadows really has the best terrain. Timberline isnt bad, but rather flat, and skibowl is only good if theres a lot of snow since its so low on the mountain it doesnt have it as often.

Tap into savings and basically make affording riding your priority and just forget about tuition, rent, bills, whatever applies to you personally.
