Season Pass Time

My partner and I are getting ready to purchase our season passes at Wachusett Mountain here in Massachusetts. It's not the biggest or the best mountain, but there is a good selection of terrain, they have good snowmaking and it's close (which is the most important I think when you've got a season pass since you want to use it as much as possible).

Now I just have to make sure we go skiing there at least 10 times this winter to make up for what we're going to pay for the pass.

Anyone else getting season passes for their local mountain? This is the first time in years I'm getting one - the last one I had was for Burke Mountain in northern Vermont when I went to college and the mountain was only about 10 minutes away (talk about some awesome skiing).

RE: Season Pass Time

Jeff I don't ski. I hate going down anything fast. I've never been on a roller coaster. It is my nightmare. Several years ago we went to a resort with skiing. I decided to try for the first time. It was sort of a group lesson on the bunny slope. Let's just say I flunked and was miserable.

My husband, stepson and one daughter love to ski. I usually don't go but I have and sat in the lodge. My youngest who is now in L.A. went skiing at Wachusett. Have fun and I'd get the pass. You might go more often if you have it. Sort of like a gym membership.

That's what I'm hoping - since it won't cost anything - we can go whenever we want - even if we don't have a whole day to ski or something like that. Plus the mountain is only about a 1/2 an hour from my office - so I can scoot up there after work for a few runs and then come home later.

RE: Season Pass Time

Well it's finally cold enough that we're getting to use our Season Passes. Wachusett had a tough time of it so far this year - making just enough snow to open a few trails and then getting hit with the warm weather and rain, which would melt that snow away and keep them closed for a few days at a time.

We were there last Friday before all the rain and ice and the conditions on the few trails they had open wasn't too bad - though it was more like spring skiing since temperature was well into the 40's. This week they have been blasting out the snow - so the conditions have been a lot better.

Nice to finally have a bit of winter here in New England.

We went and got our season passes for Wachusett Mountain here in Massachusetts again. Though this year we only got the basic pass, which will let us go evening/night skiing any time and ski on weekdays. We discovered that last year we never went on weekends - so why pay extra for a pass when we won't use those extra features.
