    My buddy just called. Apparently you can pick up the ASC passes at any of the resorts now. :)

    not sure what to do if you said to mail it, tho...

    will they be uploading in trucks? I've been there for 2 or 3 of Killingtons opening weekends and that's usually how it goes.

    Well Maybe Windows is Bearable ! Unix Rules !
    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 ! :thumb: )
