being a poor college student I go where i can afford to. Frankly, my jay/bolton pass was only 179, no blackout dates, and some night skiing. The only downside is that its a hike to get up to jay. Id rather go to a place like smuggs or sugarbush since theyre half the distance. Also im not a fan of ASC, just as corporate as Stowe. Id rather go to a mountain where they manage themselves, and dont set the market, so they have to keep competitive prices.
