Season pass or not?
Season is almost over, 2 more trips and I'm probably done this year!
Living in the bay area is a good solid 4 hours away from lake tahoe without traffic, so although we are blessed with many good resort selections, it is quite a drive!
I'm debating whether or not to get a season pass, apparently if I do, i should do them now to save some money. I am pretty sure if I have to pick one, I'll do northstar/heavenly since as a beginner first season person, this mountain offers alot for me.
I felt like if i have a season pass, and if I am in sacramento for work, I can "make" time to go boarding for half day, or a few hrs not feeling guilty i'm not using the entire day. But this will pretty much lock me into 1 resort (mainly northstar). I would also take the bus (one bad experience) and they do offer killer deals, 89-99 dollars including lift ticket. or 49-69 just bus fee.
What you all think? Season pass or not? It's more complicated then just calculating the face value of what you can save by multiplying how many days i will spend on the mountain. Since we live in the bay area, we can get discount tickets from craigslist, shell 2 for 1, these bus thingys. However, i'm not sure if the shell 2 for 1 will still be good for northstar. I don't know how much ticket runs during jan/feb on craigslist, since they are pretty cheap now. (end of season)
