Triple Major Pass

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I found out the other day that Jay Peak, MRG, and Bolton Valley offer a season pass with no blackout dates for full-time students. It comes to 278 and change after taxes.

Has this been around for a long time? I have gotten the threedom pass for the past three years and had no idea what I was missing.

Theres no way I dont pick this up for the upcoming season.

Im at Emerson College and i've been looking around for something like this too... friend of mine here said he got a pass last year that was for Loon Mountain and 2 others but for the life of me i cant remember what it was called

I wish that existed/I knew about it back in the day. What a sick deal. It could arguably be worth it even if I'm in town for a couple weeks.

Yeah Master Plan, I live in Boston and the pass you are talking about is the Threedom pass. You get Loon, Waterville, and Cranmore on one pass. No blackoutdates on unlimited one for 480 for for 420 with blackout days, but u can go to the other 2 resorts on any of the blackout dates depending where u got your pass.

Used to be real cheap, now booth creek sold Loon and the deal is not such a slam dunk.

If your looking for places to get good shots in the east your going to find the best ones at Jay or Mad River Glenn, not waterville and loon.

I know the threedom pass is appealing because those mountains are about 2 hours from Boston but the drive to MRG is deffinatley worth it. If you go to Jay Peak just get a cheap motel for a few nights.

How far do you think the drive is to MRG? Should I make a 4 day weekend out of it and hit up Stowe while I'm there too?

Red line (75-80 mph) MRG's 3 hours from Boston - longer w/traffic & snow.

I'm starting out 1/2 hour ahead of you cause I'm in the Northern burbs.

I used to find Killington and Sunday River doable as a round-trip day trip, but the next group (MRG, Sugarbush, Sunday River, Stowe) are an extra 1/2 hour to 45 minutes -- just a little too far. And Jay or Sugarloaf are a looong drive (actually, just another 1/2 beyond the last group, but that is getting long).

Last year, now that I've gotten old and weak, I've pretty much given up on the up-and-back in one day trip. I started going up the night before -- you can often get a room+lift ticket for not much more than the price of a lift ticket. The good side is, that strategy make Sugarloaf or Stowe accessible, where they really weren't before.

BTW - speaking of Eastern film -- did you notice the Meathead threads?

Threedom pass is not much of a skiers pass.

If you go for Mad River, remember that its start date is usually later and since they don't have snowmaking, there can be gaps in the season. But for that price, how can you pass it up.
