Got the Season Passes yesterday!!

Jiminy Peak, Twilight pass (every day after 3p, includes holidays and blackouts) for $204 after discounts... Can't beat that price for a medium sized resort (or just about any resort)!!

Went behind the lodge and checked out the mountain while I was there. Saw my favorite trails, cried a little, cursed god for all months that weren't December, January, or February, and then left.

Wow, $204 including holidays and blackouts seems like a pretty decent price.

LOL at your second sentence

Given the place is 25 minutes from my house and solidly in the medium-sized resort category for East Coast, it's a goddamn steal.

The twilight pass works great for me: Get home from work, let the dog out so he can strangle a brownie, throw the gear in the back of the car and hit the slopes. It usually pays for itself in the first two weeks of the season.

Ouch! That's dedication. You have my sympathy.

SnowBun's got a subway ride, then a train ride and then a car ride before she gets to the nearest hill. If she wants to be there for a place to open on Sat morn, she's got to leave her place @ midnight... literally.

Congrats and I am sure I will see you up there a more then a couple times this year.

Got my twilight pass earlier so will be up there more this year. Got one for my other hill too so that one will be my daytime home this year for the most part. All in all think I paid about $450 for both. But will get my moneys worth for sure.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

Yeah, I'm in Charlotte, and the nearest spots are at least $500, which is absolutely ridiculous AND I have to drive close to 2 hours.

But I'm gonna do it.

Yea, Sugar Mt. in Boone, NC is about 4 hours from me and season pass is $550 with discounts and that is only one mountain. A season pass that is good for all the NC mountains is $775!

Got to order my season pass for Sugar before July 1st, otherwise it goes up another $70.

I've been thinking about doing Beech instead... they added the new terrain park last year, so now they have two. The pass is also at least $50 cheaper. Sugar has seriously got to step up its terrain park game... still undecided though...
