we just bought our season pass(mvp) to mammoth mtn which is also good for june mtn; two mountains for the price of one! The great thing about the season pass is the convenience factor it affords. We live within an hour's drive so we can go at anytime now. If we don't feel like boarding all day, then we just put in a few hours and leave. I wouldn't do that if I had bought a half day or full day pass($87), I'd make sure I'd get my moneys worth.

We mostly go to these two resorts as the other closest ones are in Lake Tahoe and 4-5hrs away. So it's really a no brainer for us.

Conditions here normally don't warrant a season pass. Hello, Ice Coast. Last year, I just went on locals' nights during the week, and had coupons from my pop's work. I never paid full price, so a season pass would have cost me more. This year conditions are great, but the coupons dried up. Wishing I had bought a season pass this year when I had the cash for it. It's a gamble unless you're very close to a resort that has consistently good conditions.

:edit: Seems like a season pass to my local resorts doesn't work for half the season. And they have varying levels- most of them won't let you go whenever, so I'd be stuck taking a lot of time off work. It's a catch 22 really- anything the resorts can do to suck your wallet dry.
Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

I got a college season pass to killington for just a little over 300 which is a really nice deal. If I didn't have access to that kind of a deal I would probably be all over the place and go to different mountains on days that they have some kind of promotion, like mount snow has a pay your age day. But what it comes down to is how many times you want to board in a year.
