At 73 I buy my Mt Ashland season pass for $30. Of course if you read the brochure carefully, over 70s are free.
Mt Ashland is a community and having that pass lets me feel like a part of it. I only skied 4 days there last year but still got my money's worth.
Since my wife came back to Wisconsin our home on Mt Ashland sits vacant most of the year. The Central competition season doesn't allow me much time off before April.
"Every lift, every run, every day" is the motto of the Mt Ashland Ski Patrol my wife told me when she was patrolling there.
After years at Devil's Head in Wisconsin, her first day there she asked "where are the cravats?". "In the cabinet next to the explosive cabinet" was the reply.
Welcome to the mountains!
Mt Ashland is the best deal in skiing. A full day ticket is less than at Tyrol Basin in Wisconsin and about half of what Granite Peak charges.
Mt Ashland is 1200+ vertical feet at an average pitch of plus or minus 30 degrees while Tyrol is 250 feet at 16 degrees.
