Last year a friend of mine took his son and a few friends (including my youngest) to VT for a ski weekend.
He chose Stratton and Mount Snow. I tried to convince him to spend one of those days at Magic. He didn’t listen.
Yeah, the Stratton tix were really expensive.
After the trip my son came back and said....Dad, Vermont skiing sucks. I don’t blame him. I told him I’ll take him for some real VT skiing one of these days, hit up the likes of Magic, Sugarbush, MRG....even try the NEK (Jay, Stowe).
I skied Magic last Sunday. Mainly because my daughter and son-in-law had Indy Pass tickets to use. Not much open. They had some trails open on thin cover but it was really thin and I didn't try any. Magic badly needs more snow.
(stratton thread drift to magic, as it should be!)
Yes, agreed. Magic is much better. I actually never skied Stratton until I bought Max Passes a couple tears ago.
My sister already bought 3 day tickets for herself and her family. You would think my own relatives would listen better but I guess Marketing can be a powerful force. I guess I’ll have to bite the bullet
I’ll have fun. All skiing is fun
going to Okemo this weekend..free lodging at friends house that looks at the mountain...super luxurious digs...
might bail on the the skiing given the forecast is shit..120$ walk up..that said i'm sure the sheep will line up to ski the ice..
I’ve been lurking here for quite awhile so thanks for all the info everyone. Brownski if you are an REI member (or know someone who is) you can purchase lift tickets for there qualifying areas at a discount. Stratton is one $95. Killington as well $90
