    it's worth it just to ski groomers. If I'm gonna ski groomers, I would rather do it in Europe than the states. It's cheaper there and the food and scenery are better.

    I don't see it worth it just to cruise groomers, but I could be wrong on that front to. After all, the food, drink, and scenery are $$$$.
    Lol! we should be fine, and up for some side country, off-piste stuff. Neither of us has toured much, just a couple of guided side trips of the tram with lots of falling involved. Need more practice! I just tend to get inside my own head. She's now shopping for bindings for skis she picked up end of last season, so I guess these means we are probably in.

    It sounds like if I don't feel like bringing skis, there are plenty to rent?

    yes, there is a good rental shop less than a mile down the road from Mt. Lodge. We rented skis for my wife there last year. As someone noted above, most of the rentals in Europe are not the typical Mag-type ski, but they will have some things that are a bit wider underfoot.

    If I remember correctly you need to string at least 5-6 days together to get price equaling $45ish a day. Id guess $500 for 12.
    Note they sell as consecutive days, not a punchcard or 5 out of 7 day type thing. Also remember Weds being a super cheap local type day. So if you can overlap two of those it equals a free square..

    They went to a dynamic pricing model last year so can't really answer that one for you. The further out you bought, the cheaper the price. In general, however, lift tickets are dramatically less expensive in Euro land than in North America and the breakeven on passes is at a significantly higher number of days than over here. Even if you were doing 12 days, best guess would be that just buying those 12 days a month or so in advance would be your best bet and my best wildass guess on that 6 months out would be approximately $600.

    I was just buying day of last year, and other participants from last year correct me if I'm wrong, but I recall 60-70 ChF per day. Exchange rate very nearly on par, which is very helpful for calculating your bar tab when already lit.
    ETA: You boys are fast. Looks like we all have a similar recollection though.

    Definitely buy as early as possible for lowest price.

    I paid 181 Chf for 5 days. That deal for that lift system beats any deal stateside.

    This was Norse's:

    The dynamic pricing fucks all of the "local tourists" like me and other "no season pass living close by skiers." make sense from their point of view i guess. I mean who skis andermatt for the groomers? so weekend blue bird powderdays are 76chf instead of 60something now.

    so if you plan in advance, get the full 7, 10 or 12 days thing instead of day passes.
    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.
