Disagree...at least on Jackson Frost.

I would agree, to a point

Camelback is still better than JF/BB

Disagree.  Everyone knows your statement is based solely on no high speed lifts.  I think the argument between which is better is determined by daily conditions/crowds.  A powder day (lets pretend Blue closes due to "weather, ok?) with a decent base off trail, hands down, JF.  Suck up the short runs, slow lifts, but the rewards are actually some pretty decent skiing, off trail.  Enjoy a beer in the lot afterwards.  Every asshole in the world will go to Toe that day too.

This is a good read, i am forever trying to wrap my head around all of this, as is everybody else, like the commenter who says "im trying to figure out if this is a big deal, or a big nothing"  But there are some strong points in there about Alterra.

Longer runs at camelback as well...you just don’t get much skiing or speed in at JF and I did have some fun PASR days there.

Sure, but does JFBB have a camel mascot that you can high five?!?!?!?

makes no sense that they'd release a bunch of 70+ passes if they were so firm about season pass limits. 

i still think they'll sell more, maybe they'll reach out to existing passholders for first dibs. 

applying for a job might be a good hedge... get hired and get a SP. if they do release more, just quit and buy a pass.
