$800. I would do the math of lift ticket prices times the realistic amount of days you will ride. I ride Beech and Cataloochee, but I ride cat every week because its super close(2hr 45mins from Atl). I get the mid week pass at cataloochee for $299 because it ends up saving me money. And I take a few couple day trips to Beech.

It fits my schedule best. My off days are in the middle of the week so that's when I get to ride the most. If you go to cataloochee.com and go to trip planning then to season passes, you will find all the options and restrictions. The epic pass is good for almost all the NC ski resorts but would be a waste of money if you didn't go enough to balance out the cost. Have you skied any of the NC resorts yet?

I've boarded cat, and beech last yr. this yr now that a buddy from work is more local i'm hoping me and him can hit the slopes like every weekend,

i tried getting local henry county friends to learn to ride but everyone chickened out and only two came out of 15 the two that came one just snow tubbed and gave up (snowboarding) after a hard fall...the other fell the whole time all the way down but kept trying but eventually said it wasn't his thing..

but im hoping i can make friends on here that wanna go on the weekends and what not


but as far as your question goes just two!

That's awesome! There are quite a few people in our area that are die hard snowboarders. I've had friends do the exact same thing. LOL Some people just can't handle smacking the ice or snow over and over and give up.

You are in the Buckhead area? Do you go to the bars around there?

I'm technically still new to the area (buckhead) but i'm mostly at piedmont park and that area im more of a food person than a beer drinker but i do go to sweetwater quite often on fridays for the cheap and awesome beer!!!!

Liftopia - Lift Tickets Online - Discount Ski Lift Tickets

didn't know if anyone saw that this is a great deal and hopefully it will be more available for the east coast.
