    SEASON PASSES: Who's going where?

    I Picked up the Silverton Unguided Pass (again) and the Epic Local.

    So I'm covered at:

    ABasin
    Keystone
    Breckenridge
    Silverton Unguided

    +10 days @ Vail/BeaverCreek
    + 5 days @ Loveland
    + 5 days @ Monarch
    + 5 days @ ABasin (reduntant)

    ... and technically Heavenly, Kirkwood, Northstar, and Canyons but I seriously doubt I'll be able to make out to Tahoe.

    Anyhoo, where the fuck is the snow?
    In search of the elusive artic powder weasel ...

    A Basin/ Keystone Pass
    RMSP+
    Still thinking about the Aspen 4 pack.
    Assuming they have the Shell deal, Crested Butte days are BOGO.

    I have to get those Steamboat days. I'm addicted to that place....

    I realigned my season passes for the upcoming season.

    I replaced my Mammoth Pass with a Mountain Collective Pass.

    *2 days @ Mammoth
    *2 days @ Squaw/Alpine
    *2 days @ Alta/Snowbird
    2 days @ Jackson Hole
    2 days @ Aspen
    2 days @ Whistler/Blackcomb

    (I may not make it to all of the above resorts, but I'll easily be able to take advantage of at least 6 days and I'm likely to buy a few 50% off Mammoth tickets with the money I've saved.)

    I downgraded my full Epic Pass to a Tahoe Local Pass (since it will be unlikely to make a CO trip this season.)

    * Kirkwood
    * Heavenly
    * Northstar
    (w/ blackout dates and an option for discount tickets at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and Keystone if my schedule suddenly allows.)

    I upgraded my 6-day Sierra at Tahoe Pass to a Full Sierra at Tahoe Pass (No blackouts plus Powder Alliance resorts)

    *Sierra at Tahoe
    *Squaw (early season, late season, and one week in January)
    *Alpine (early season, late season, and one week in January)
    Plus
    3 days @ Monarch Mountain
    *3 days @ Snowbasin
    3 days @ Crested Butte
    3 days @ Steven's Pass
    3 days @ Mountain High
    3 days @ Schweitzer
    3 days @ Angel Fire
    3 days @ Timberline
    3 days @ Mt. Hood Ski Bowl
    3 days @ China Peak
    3 days @ Arizona Snowbowl
    3 days @ Bridger Bowl
    Free @ Grand Targhee (w/ lodging purchase)

    * I should easily make it to at least 10 of the 30 resorts I have available (and my passes are costing about $500 less than last year.)

    Let it snow!

    last two seasons I've done the Super Pass+ and Loveland, so ...

    - Loveland
    - WP/MJ
    - Copper
    - 6 days @ Monarch
    - 6 days @ Steamboat (if access ended here, I'm be fine with that)
    plus
    - 3 @ Durango
    - 3 @ CB
    - 1 day @ Silverton, unguided


    Had a couple really good fun days at Vail last year with a friend on discounted tickets. I wouldn't mind more of that this season if possible.

    Overpriced Mt. Rose full pass (it's 5 miles from the house), and Mountain Collective pass. That's all.

    Hoping for normal snowfall this year, so maybe I can get more than one day of backcountry in.

    ^^^ This. I also would like to make full use of the Dynafit + manpower pass this season.

    Also have a Squalpine Silver Pass (aka Tahoe Super Pass): Squaw/Alpine with the usual holidays blacked out, plus Sierra-At-Tahoe Sunday-Friday. Keep planning on defecting to Sugarbowl, but still hasn't happened.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    Targhee. And a few recovery days at JHMR to rest the legs by simply standing in line...

    Do it! Otherwise, you're praying SummCO has a big year. At least with the RMSP you've got mountains in 4 different areas....

    How are you getting CB and Durango?


    Winterpark site doesn't mention anything but Monarch?

    Those are extras on the Loveland pass, as well as the 1 day @ Silverton and 3 of the Monarch days.

    Squaw/Alpine Gold pass, which includes Sierra at Tahoe and 50% off at all of the Mountain Collective resorts (will definitely take advantage of that at Mammoth this season and hopefully a trip out to UT for Alta/Bird.)

    RMSP+ (again)
    Loveland 4-Pack
    RMNP yearly pass (sort of a season pass!)

    Very stoked to have Monarch added to RMSP+. Planning on an inbounds/bc weekend there this season.


    Whoever wished for a normal season above...second that. I just want average. Average around here is plenty fun.

    I bot a JH pass last week. Managed to wiggle a deal in each of my last 12 seasons. No such luck this year. That hurts. It better snow on my days away from work and family!

    Brighton, spending most my days skiing with my kids.
    If ski companies didn't make new skis every year I wouldn't have to get new skis every year.

    A Mammoth MVP pass and a Mt. Baldy virtual pass. Same as last year. Let's hope for an average season for both Mammoth and Baldy.

    Loveland, because it's 12 miles away. (also because it's not VR or RMSP, although I might pick up a 4-pack or just travel out of state if it's not snowing here)

    I decided to try the full pass at Silverton, it's free beer at the very least. It's time I tried some of the guided skiing and heli-drops up there anyway.

    A Taos pass, because it's Taos, and most likely some sort of discount card at Ski Santa Fe because I can see it from my front door.

    But I got a brand new touring rig for dawn patrol before work.

    Wouldn't that be the shit. I am praying for some Baldy and SV turns this winter to supplement my trips to Mammoth. I got the upgrade to my Mammoth pass to get 50% off the Mountain collective resorts. That will help for the annual week in Tahoe and maybe push me to do a Whistler and or Alta/Bird trip. Just hoping for a decent season this year.
