I think you all paying these godawful prices should pick up our pass (or one of the other sensibly priced ones) and use the $1000 per person (assuming you've got family members) you save towards 2-3 weeks out here. Are people really skiing the 30 days on these things that I think MIGHT be justified? I don't want to hear the "breakeven" at daily rates. I mean we're not talking taking flying lessons (where there's airplane fuel involved) and justifying paying $75-$100 for a day of skiing. Even $50 a day is nuts IMO. But, that much I'll give to you. Personally, I like to see my ski days down in the $5-$10 per day range.
I already have my passes for the season which i posted earlier in this thread. Just did a quick check seeing the prices at some areas posted here, just wanted to compare. A season pass for Stowe is $1503 & Sugarbush is $1499 plus tax I'm sure, they are right up there with other resorts.
