Which season pass should I purchase?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Here is my situation, I'm a father of two under two, living in CT and I'm currently the only skier in my household. I work rotating shift work and get plenty of days off during the normal work week to ski. I usually get the chance to ski about 20 - 30 times a season, from a combination of normal work/daycare days and a planned trip or two. I commute to So. VT for daily ski trips, anything longer then a two hour drive is pushing the limits of skiing and driving in one day for me.

 

The dilemma is I'm unsure of where to get a pass this year. For the past three seasons since my return to New England I've had a pass at Mount Snow. I've always liked Mount Snow. It's the most convenient decent mountain for me to get up to. Up the road just a little bit, around the two hour mark are Okemo and Stratton. I'm purchasing a mid-week only pass; if I were to ski on a weekend it'll be on a trip to the Northern Tier, Magic (if the conditions are right), or out West. Now Stratton, Okemo and Sunapee have a combination mid-week pass for a slightly cheaper price then the mid-week Mount Snow only pass. I have no experience with Stratton  and limited experience with Okemo.

 

So my dilemma is should I jump ship and get the three mountain pass (Okemo, Stratton, Sunapee) or stick with Mount Snow? 

Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

This is a tough one.  Mostly because I'm always amazed at the season pass price difference between East Coast and other regions of the country.  

 

Hope someone who's been down that road in your area will chime in.

I would go with the Okemo/Stratton/Sunapee pass.  Nice to have the variety.  And all are good at snowmaking and grooming so capable of making the best at what Mother Nature offers up.

Get the Mount Snow pass as the Nor'easter pass comes with Crotched, Attitash, and Wildcat. If you haven't done it before you need to ski New Hampshire. It's a very different experience (less expensive, no lift lines, no condos puked all over the hill). I'm a huge fan of Wildcat.
