  1. I hate that I did it but I bit the bullet and bought the pass last night. I honestly was really on the fence this year. @skiincy didn't want to buy one out of spite. I got a new credit card to go to Dubai with that didn't actually get here in time so I used it to buy the Blue pass which in turn gave me 0% interest and a $200 statement credit. Using the classic Ski 2 Live logic I was able to justify the price of a Blue pass this year because I got a bunch of money off of it buying it this way and also can pay it off whenever I feel like it. Suck it Blue for "Not leaving money on the table". You got me this year but might not have me forever. Their pricing team is on thin ice
  2. I'll be up in NEPA this weekend, would we want some pizza? I know it's already been done once.
  3. The community is definitely a big help too. I feel pretty confident that most of the time I'm at Blue there's someone I know there. Not only is it cool that ski/ride with friends but as weird as it sounds it's kind of reassuring that if something goes very very wrong out there I'll likely have a friendly face around to help me. If I went Epic pass only and went to Jack Frost and went down in the trees I think it would be a worse situation to be completely alone.
  4. I did think about that actually but realistically how long/how many times can I head up to NEPA for a weekend and ski a smaller, less diverse mountain with slow lifts and really enjoy it? Montage was/is amazing if you live really close and can pop in after work, ski the whole North Face once and head back home for dinner. Not sure it's a week after week destination if you need to drive. My goal next year is to enjoy my weekends here in PA and do at least one decent sized western trip, maybe two.
  5. It's time to buy a pass and honestly it's not as easy to do this year as in past years. I think $650 is the tipping point for people like me that live farther away. $650 is still a no brainer for someone within a 30 minute drive of Blue but it starts to get untenable for someone like me who's a weekend warrior and hopes to not be too busy for a few RAWS. Especially with all the other pass options out there for New York, Indy, Epic and Ikon it actually is more to think about than I thought. Any thoughts from the Philly and Philly burbs guys?
  6. SharCootery works late on Saturdays at the Just Enuff Lounge.
  7. Would be cool if some of the Elk guys came down!
  8. Ask them about the date for the rescheduled 2020 season passholder party
  9. Looks like a good day for some uphill! WTGAI!
  10. Should I plan on bringing an entree, appetizer, dessert or breakfast? I'll probably go to Breaker brewing for some beverages and maybe some Champagne
  11. I'm planning on at least 2 more weeks at Blue. Can't think of any reason not to at this point.
  12. I had surprising success with frozen pancakes at a tailgate last fall.
  13. Low key for you is still more food than I have on Thanksgiving
  14. Sunday is definitely looking like the better day at this point in terms of weather. They might not even be open on Saturday if current forecast holds
  15. Not as disappointed I had to miss today now. I was watching the webcams and it looked pretty empty
  16. Much less than I would have guessed
  17. What does a tow truck cost out of pocket if you don't mind me asking?
  18. Was this an attempt to get up to the doubles? or did you just ride the triple for fun? I rode the triple for fun two PASR days ago when I was too drunk to drive still and needed to kill some time so I figured exploring the one part of the mountain I've never been to was a good idea.
  19. This is bad for stoke. Even though I've never actually been to Bear Creek
  20. So we get a $50 gift cetificate to be used anywhere on the mountain right? What If I hold onto that and use it to buy my 23/24 season pass?
  21. Just based on where the snow has been falling the frequent skier card and indy pass are the winners for this season!
  22. Let us know how it is. I can't imagine any snow will be able to stick to the frozen hellscape that is Coming Soon.
  23. Stuck around for 16 runs. TCS was unbelievable. Probably should have been closed. Razors was really good.
