Bogus Basin still rocks the best night skiing in the west and turns out some really good skiers. Kids are still hitching rides and tearing it up on the mountain. The $199 unlimited season pass is the best money I spend every year.

What do you guys think is the cheapest option given this schedule?

 

 

- December 15/16 (SLC)
- Jan 19/20 (SLC)
- Feb 9/10 (SLC)
- Mar 2/3 (Tahoe)
- Mar 9/10 (Tahoe)
- Mar 15 to 22 (Smugglers)
 
I think it might be Mountain Collective + Bash Badge Plus.  Am I missing anything I should consider?  Thanks!

I picked up my Snow Time Advantage card (discount card) over the weekend.  It's good at the three areas closest to where I live, Liberty, Whitetail and Roundtop.  I don't ski at these areas enough to make a pass economical, but the advantage card pays for itself after 4 trips, and the 6th day of skiing is free.

Bought 2 Ultra passes to Okemo VT last April. Just under $2400. Good thing we get in on the good rate...:(

 

Now it's time to pay the first 1/2 of the Season house rental. $2000.

 

Then the balance by Thanksgiving, another $2000.

 

Gee I hope it snows...

You're not supposed to figure how much it cost in a bad snow year.  

You're supposed to figure how much you saved on a good snow year. biggrin.gif

I bought my Kirkwood/Heavenly/Northstar pass in April for $419 when then gave you six $70 buddy tickets with it. My wife and I bought her Kirkwood/Heavenly/Northstar a couple of weeks later for the same price, but she may have only received two buddy tickets.

 

Today, I bought a friend the same pass for $439 and it includes 6 buddy tickets. He helped me tear off a 2nd story 20.5 X 16.5 foot deck and will be helping me rebuild it over the next couple of weekend. He was thinking about buying the pass that is not valid at Kirkwood and Northstar on Saturdays for $40 less, but this should work out better for both of us.

 

Tomorrow (could be final day at this price), I will offer to buy half of another friend's pass if he will help me with flashing and stucco that may be required on new deck, He is planning a week at So. Tahoe and it seems like $439 will be cheaper than buying five day passes. So I could end up buying two passes and splitting the cost of two passes.

 

These passes are blacked out a couple of days over Thanksgiving, Dec. 27-31.and Saturday and Sunday of MLK and President's weekend.

tseeb, if someone were to help out on weekends would you be open to throwing in some bindings (I already have the pass) :) :)?

Picked up the Ski Santa Fe (also Sandia Peak) Gold Card passes in early August for the family.

Season pass with blackouts from 12/25 through 1/1 for about $100 off normal pass. No other special benefits.

Also prepurcased seats on group trips to Wolf Creek, Taos, and Purgatory for this winter.

My girlfriend and I bought our Epic Passes the week they went on sale. We are just now counting down the days and trying to buy our new gear little by little each month to spread out the cost. New skis, boots, bindings, and poles for her! Does anyone know about any good deals or couch surfing opportunities for this coming season. We are looking for cheap lodging so we can make as many trips as possible this season. We are also interested in meeting some new ski buddies that can keep up... any takers?
