Are you kidding? $600 is cheap out here. We have this thing called snowmaking. It costs a lot of money.

Did you know that Jay accepts the Canadian dollar at par with the US.

Jay offers lots of cheap tix deals.

Take pass deals wherever you can find them. With 150+ days per seson, $2/day is a pretty darn good deal to ski all you want for the season. In relation to other recreational activites it's a phenomenal bargain.

Jay at $38/day was for VT residents and those with passes to other mountains. Jay did that in an effort to recruit customers who could buy very inexpensive passes to ASC or Booth Creek mountains. However, both companies bit the dust last year and couldn't pay their bills - ASC is basically gone and Booth is seriously downsized.

$600 for a ski-as-much-as-you-want pass is still a good value when compared to other activities. Maybe not to the western pass deals, but those days are numbered too IMO. Western mountains have so much more skier traffic resulting from desitnation visitors that there is more money flowing through all parts of the system than day/weekend skiers in the East. Rising energy costs will eventually force some type of change.

Just like at home, if you want to spend the same or less to run your house, you either crank the heat down, put on more clothes, take cold showers, cook less, turn off the lights, or find some other way to use less energy.

If $600 isn't a good value for Jay, there are a few smaller mountains with pass prices in the $400-$500 range. Less terrain and vert than Jay, but skiing none the less. Every ski area in the East is now having to figure out how they fit in the new matrix that is "easten skiing". Personally I think Jay will do just fine.

Not any good when 1 US dollar < 1 Canadian dollar.

The US peso is born.

Jay might need to keep up their efforts to recruit customers. Boyne who now owns sugarloaf, sunday river, and loon is offering a $369 pass this year.

Given the new environment, I think all mountains will be "recruiting" more this year. The Boyne $369 pass is a mid-week only (M-F) non-holiday, so not a fair comparison with Jay's $600 all access/anytime pass. Jay has a midweeker too for around $330 (IIRC). A Boyne full access pass looks like it will be $799-$1049. The higher price for the Sugarloaf version of an upgraded Gold+/New England Pass.

Will be interesting to see where the Canadian business goes now that all areas are on an even playing field exchange-wise. My guess is a significant amount of Canadian traffic will still flow to Jay unless it's a bad snow year.

i guess jaypeak raised the rates to payoff that new golf course :

some good deals i was just checking out for CO.

x-Colorado Pass
$439 Adult / $329 Teen / $209 Child

-get the The Colorado Pass and get 10 days at Vail and Beaver Creek, restriction dates apply.
-Unlimited access to Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin with no restrictions.


x-"The Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus" is a new product that allows unlimited skiing and riding at both Winter Park/Mary Jane and Copper PLUS 6 unrestricted days at Steamboat, and free skiing every Friday after 12:00 pm at Steamboat.



$499


or a Loveland mtn pass for $319 which includes some riding at Monarch as well.

Why would anyone want to ski Jay? It's an absolute bore of a mountain.

To keep Jay a little less expensive find a place that offers the passport with a stay. It offers discounted lift passes and for every 5 tickets you get the 6th free. I think the lift ticket prices were around $43/day adult. VT residents still get a good deal too.

Jay has always accepted the Canadian dollar at par as it is owned by Canadians.

Like everyone else has said, that's a bargain out here. However, I know last year jay ran a promotion from like mid january-closing day (i think) where if you booked a 4 night stay there every adult going got a free season pass....hopefully they'll do that again.....You can always book a condo and just cram it with people, make the pass cheaper.

You think $300 is a lot for a season pass in CO?? Are you kidding!
What are your thoughts on the price of Mac & Cheese these days?

rere... i never had to buy a season pass before so when i started looking i saw that they are around 300 give or take a few bucks, i said well for sumone that is TIGHT WITH MONEY right now it is alot when you aint got it!!!! then i looked at jays prices and said **** im in CO and get multi resorts for half the price. boy am i glad i moved from the icecoast and yes jaypeak is still the sickest mtn in the east,nobody comes close as far as no crowds,great snow,great terrain and the sickest glades in the east period. anyway i bought a loveland season pass and a winterpark/copper/steamboat pass so im sure ill find powder on any given day! and mac n cheese is better here too..!
