Got to order my season pass for Sugar before July 1st, otherwise it goes up another $70.
^^^^ I saw that the other day. I can't believe the gold pass is so much. I wish I went enough for that to be worth it. I decided to go with the cataloochee pass for any weekday or night. It's only 250 so it pays for itself in like 10 trips. I calculated the sugar pass out to pay for itself in like 23 trips. I don't go to any one mtn enough to justfy paying that much.

Yeah but beech really didn't have their intermediate park open till like the last month. Sugar has the best kickers and booters though. I think I saw a 10% off discount at beech if you're a student. Mine was gonna be like $405 for any day. A lot cheaper than sugar.... Sugar is where I first learned to ride though, So I could never really write it off completely.

Agreed.

Yeah, Beech's terrain is jib heavy as hell (nothing against rails and boxes). You may have just helped me decide). I wish the Hawk would re-open.

And just FYI on that gold pass... there's only 125 of them and they give return customers the first month to purchase...

Oh really? I wouldn't buy one anyways. I'll spend my 800 bucks on a few trips to snow shoe. I haven't even seen all the places it gives you access to like wolf ridge and app. I think my weekday and night pass should serve me well.

Never been to Beech. I'm more into all-mountain style riding instead of terrain park but I do want to try some this year. You know Travis, we usually head up together and neither of us are really into the terrain park. Plus he has been to Beech and said he liked Sugar better.

I'm not sure what I'm gonna do. I'm wanting to get a season pass to somewhere but I don't want to limit myself to just one mountain and then regret which one I choose. I know I'll be trying to head up at least 2 weekends a month, probably do the twilight on Friday, all day Saturday and all day Sunday but leave when they shut down for a couple hours in the afternoon, somewhere around 4 I think it was. So 2 all day passes and 1 twilight, twice a month would really start to add up. Be somewhere around $170 per weekend at their normal rates at Sugar. Season pass is $547, so I'd pay for that in just over 3 weekends.

Oh, I'll definitely come out on the good end by far, but it's ridiculous when you see people in SO MUCH better places paying less than half as much for season passes.

Oh I do hate the southeast's game... if your comprehension game was on par, you'd have noticed that in the structure of the sentence . I am sick with envy though !!!!!

It is ridiculous how places around here rip us off because there just aren't enough options... and I may smack someone this season if he tries to take my pass when I'm innocent... fucker tried to tell me I went 'out of bounds' when someone else had already dropped the rope last season
