Debating getting a season pass, but I think I'll wait till next year since I'm doing a winter and spring trip this season.
Getting a season pass to where, Hidden Valley? If so don't do it now, actually if you wait until the beginning of February to buy one they are $300 and good for the rest of this season into the next year. Right now they are like $400.

I know I used to go out west 1 to 3 times a year, and then I got married and had kids and that pretty much came to end. Since I got married we take a lot of trips up north in the Wisconsin area but still not anything close to out west, just much bigger versions of our local spot. But this year I already booked my flight, condo, and rental car to Keystone in January. I can't wait it's been about 7 years since I've been to Colorado!!

yeah i went to vail in january. its about 10 our our hills stacked on top of each other and about 1000 of em wide. you're right its a whole different ballgame but like the others say, our hills beat nit riding at all. maybe it makes us appreciate and have more fun when we do get out west. i had the time of my life and we're planning another trip out there in march.

After the 1st the price went up to $450 for full pass and the Friday/Saturday night pass is $210. As said it is better to just wait until Febuary 16th and you can get a full pass for $300 that is good for the rest of the season and then the next.

I've got a full pass and my goal is to be there 3 times a week and hopefully have the money for a trip out west in late March. I can't wait to stand on top of a mountain and look out over endless snow.

It's February 16th, I couldn't remember. $300 isn't bad but since I usually only ride on the weekends I will probably get the midnight pass, I think that is only $150 in Feb.

There are some decent resorts north in Wisconsin but nothing that will compare to out west. How far are from the east coast, say vermont?

indiana is a hike even to the east coast. snowshoe will be your best bet probably, you might be able to make it to Seven Springs in PA depending on where you're at in Indiana though that might be quite a drive, too. Of course there is always Michigan but our resorts aren't anything special, either. 300-500 vertical feet for the most part, all about 3.5 hours from the MI/IN border.
