For how much I ski, I *HAVE* to buy a pass. I think Snowbird's season pass is a better value than Alta's. First, because Alta closes in early/mid April and Snowbird is open as long as possible, ie sometimes July. There is a lot of good skiing after mid April that I'd hate to miss. Second, even though I ski, I think it's silly for Alta to deny snowboarders. I have friends that snowboard, so Alta is out if I'm going to ski with them. Third, I LOVE SNOWBIRD, Alta not a much. Don't get me wrong, Alta is good, but I find Snowbird better. With my Snowbird pass I can ski Alta for something like $23, but I just never end up finding the need to spend extra money to ski Alta when I love where I ski.
