    Any mag or friend with a gold pass has 8 bring-a-buddy days this year ($88) so that's always an option for bronze holders if it's only a few weekend days you want to ski. I don't even think I used all 5 of mine last year, what a waste. Happy to dole them out as needed.

    ^^^ same here.

    I am suffering from some buyers remorse over the Gold however.

    I write it off as a biz expense (Marketing), but I still hate the idea of giving that $$$ to Boyne.
    Ooof!

    Every time I see a huge tram line that remorse starts on me. I usually have a few buddy passes to spare as well.

    I can't help but laugh at WRG saying the gold pass price is crazy. Yeah, I suppose it is.
    $1599 thru September, correct?

    Mine was $1479 before June, $16?? during June, July, Aug. and is now at full rate through the winter. That would be a cool $2309.

    You got it good north of the state line.

    You could, like, give it to the non-profit place down the road... you know, the one with better snow and better terrain and free parking.

    I am anticipating making that move next season. I almost went Bronze and BB this year. For all the bitching about crowds, BB is no worse than BS anymore.

    DJ, didn't you get a base level IKON with that deal?
    Ooof!

    Yes sir I do get a base Ikon; and Mt. Collective 1/2 off any of their places.
    And every day at the village. So it's actually quite a good value.

    Except most full passholders here rarely go anywhere else. Hell, I hadn't been back to your haunts before BBI for about a dozen years. And so close.

    HW addition/development between those years was key...

    I plan on making laps with all you mags soon. Getting kinda psyched. My abrupt season end has left me really jonesing to turn earlier than usual.

    Hate to say it but I feel like I'm not long for Big Sky. As much as I love the terrain, too much about what's going on there irritates me. Some of the changes they made to lodging discounts this year for gold pass holders really irk me. Just always trying to squeeze more blood out of us Montana turnips. It would be nice to make a clean break and go all indie ski areas. Plenty of them in all directions from where I live. Not an easy decision to make though. I love skiing Lone Peak.

    BTW Great Divide is adding new terrain this year and a couple new chairlifts over the next couple years. Going all in on the Helena market with a big investment. Too bad they can't go ^up^ instead of <out.> But they do what they can and it's still cheap af to ski there.

    I like not bunions write off idea. I made several contacts on the chairlift last season. That's marketing, no?

    My tax person says yes to that and a golf pass, I carry my cards with me and make it a point to chat folks up.

    As a Dirt Pimp I would say you are golden, if you want her contact info, pm me.

    Yeahman you are pretty much dead on about the drift of things at the really Big. It will only get worse.

    I keep hoping for new owners but the reality is that it is a business predicated on making $$$ and that means any and all revenue streams.
    Ooof!

    The word from the Goon Marmot is the ski ballet team is supposed to get two or three times bigger. I have a pair of 70's vintage Olin 153 ski ballet skis you can use for the try outs.

    I am no CPA, but you may want to document the contacts you made and clints you took skiing to write off the gold & season passes.

    Being a road warrior I have stayed at many Holiday Inns, Marriotts, Hyatts, Ramadas, Hiltons and 3rd world flea bags. I am fortunate to have worked with some brilliant Finance people and tax attorneys, some of their wisdom did get imparted to me.

    Heh.

    The renovation work is alot more in depth than I thought. On some units they are going as far as replacing some structural stuff. New insulation, sheathing, and siding on most of the work I have seen. Really doing a good job. Prices were already nuts. Will only get crazier when the work is done.

    I am also grateful for my location, but the lesson from Vail development is any structure is a potential knockdown for a spot to build something new.

    I keep wondering when and how Cedar Creek condos will be bought and knocked down for some sort of fancy hotel or building. How would a developer buy out every owner? But the L makes it seem likely.
