Round trip bus from Boston plus lift, $83. Only a few times per year, though.
Vt travel card $27 off, but the card isn't free.

Um... you do know it's downhill skiing, yes?  An expensive activity -- especially if you do it at day pass rates.  

To be honest, these prices don't seem outrageous for the situation.

well, im from PA and i've skiing here 4 winters now, my trip to Vermon is a first time experience to go somewhere else

 

p.s. to ski in PA it will cost you 55$ the MOST... But I usually buy them on sale for 40$. probably thats why i think 84$ is too expansive

Stowe has almost 500 skiable acres and 2300 ft vertical.  Not that you'll be able to ski them all, but Stowe is a lot bigger than any place in PA.  The most vertical in PA is about 1100 ft and most places have under 200 acres to play on.  You are in for a fun time.

 

Where do you usually ski?  What type of terrain do you like?

Best way to save on Stowe lift tickets; http://www.vermonttravelclub.com/mountains

 

(Stowe uses an RFID system for passes, our photo is on a monitor every time we go through the corral, anyone 'renting' you a pass WILL lose their ski privileges).

Stowe's pre-buy rate of $84 / day is pretty much inline with what the larger areas in New England charge.

 

All of Stowe's passes are RFID based, meaning that when you 'beep' through into the lift, the name of the person who "owns" that pass will pop up on the lift attendant's monitor.  Nobody is going to give / sell you one of those because the penalty for getting caught is pretty high.

 

Skiing's not cheap.  Stowe is even less so.
