priceless:D

 

the first tracks program gets you up on Sunshine/down area about an hour before anyone else.  Even on non-powder days during the holidays its a jump on the crowds so at half price, its a bargain

Maybe I should rephrase as - how many should one buy for a 6 day stay between xmas and new-years? ;)

Well,  although the site does not state that there is a limit, evidently, they are restricting the sale to 1 per skier/rider so.....I dont know if that means per transaction or......  You could call...

 

But to answer your question. It really depends on how much you can afford or want to spend.  If getting up about an hour before the crowds to  get in 4-5 laps is of value to you, go for it.  Typically Christmas morning and New Years day Morning are not crowded FWIW.  I love skiing both AM's.  I'm sure you are well aware of the crowds at any resort during that week.

I don't have a lot of experience skiing in that window of time, so I'm not.  Still and all, might be fun to have one in my pocket in case of powdah.

 

Did Steamboat get any of the goods on New Years day last year?

I dont know......

 

powder comes when it comes... dont go by any predictions.  weather here tends to change quickly and some of our deepest storms are when they predict 1-3" but we get skunked like everyone else. I can pretty safely state it wont rain :D

If there's snow on the ground - I'll have a good time.  I just remember New Years Day 20134 at Breck was a 16" powder day (and was empty!) - wasn't sure how that system treated you.  :o

I bought 1 first track ticket so I have 1 free. I figure first tracks 2 of my six days is enough. Even if someone from my family comes with me 1 day is enough, with six days of skiing I know I will get enough runs to keep me happy. Like Finndog said New Years Day mornings are pretty empty at any ski resort. I will hold it the first storm that hits while I'm there. I was there 3 years ago during Christmas week and it was still light liftlines by east coast standards ( but Finndog would know better then me).

yeah, if you are up for Pony, its significantly less traffic. But, compared to EC, yeah, not so bad.  Get out early and get up the mountain, avoid the sunshine area and its really not too bad.  If you work Storm peak areas and use the Bar-U-E lift (if its running) you can usually lap with ease.  its a slow double but overlooked.  You can hit some fun terrain from there.  Good tree access.
