i used to love skiing but its just getting too rich for my blood. 50 bones for a lift ticket at most hokey joints with it getting upwards fo 60 for KIL/MS/WC/ATT etc. i havent gone skiing since Jeep canceled their free Jeep days 2 years ago
Now this is one thing I really don't understand . Why is when the resort first opens in teh fall like right now they have limited runs and The place is packed people can't wait. BUT!!! come spring time , when the weather is really nice and all the trails are open , no body goes ! many places close in the spring , not because lack of snow , but lack of people.
That said , I have been to opening days before ! , I've also been to more last days. and I must say , the last day of a season a place is open is a Blast!! ( when most the employees skiied/boareded down the slope naked as a very last run of the season , very interesting ! )
