and btw, what is the cost of such at your resort ie does your resort also offer blocks of tickets at discounts aside from individual and season's passes?
I just coughed up $900 for a 15 day (new) season's pass to Whistler.(traditionally they have a 5 and 10 edge card pass, as well as an unlimited season's pass..
**FYI this sales rep told me they usually sell about 100,000 Edge Card passes each year (give or take) ....if that figure is true, then....wow. (Ill verify w her tomorrow to ensure I wasn't incorrect)
I already shelled out $420 for an 'off peak' pass to my local mtn Cypress (living here in Vancouver it's only 30 min away so a great wkly training hill vs Whistler at 2 hr away).
.this yr however whistler introduced a new 15 day pass)..the sales gal also gave me a 10% discount 'cause I'm taking the upcoming Club Linc program (20 lessons each Sat same group, same instructor for $760 (taxes in: FYI here in BC we get fisted with a 12% ''harmonized sales tax'' too )..might just ''suck it up'' and ask to be (gulp) upgraded to an unlimited season's pass for $1359 taxes in ( again she was giving me a 10% discount)....f*ck...there goes my winter holidays...add to that a "Dave Murray" 3 day program for $400 I'll probably go for in January...then a few trips to Big White (Kelowna BC) or even the Alberta rockies of Sunshine (Banff) Lake Louise and Marmot (Jasper) in Feb or March...ay vay....
I like the tongue in cheek phrase that Whistler has on their site:
'Addiction: the first step is admitting it...''.
thank god I'm single.....
