    my family bought the cheap Nakiska family pass for this upcoming season. hopefully get some good use out of it this winter. not the greatest hill but for a 5 and 6 year old, its good enough.

    If you can get out mostly midweek, the Norquay 90 pass is an amazing deal, and a much better mountain than Nakiska.

    yeah, no midweek for this guy.

    problem with Norquay is that it is farther, and you have to buy a park pass.

    we bought the family pass for $599. if we go 4 times, it will have paid for itself. my wife is very happy that we can just head out there for a 3-4 hours, have some fun and leave without feeling like we needed to get our full day in.

    Yeah, a pass can take the stress off the day. 100% agree.

    For the extra 20 minutes distance, I'd do Nakiska, but that's just me.

    Hopefully doesn't end up like the disastrous RCR takeovers in recent memory. Would be a shame to have them do something stupid like shut down the whistler park as per RCR's seemingly insane protocol. That or start charging an extra fee per day to use the park.

    Sounds like they're going to add W/B to their EPIC Pass, for the 17/18 season. Which is exactly that for the current advertised value.

    I imagine they'll put quite the pricing lift on it, when they add W/B though.

    I'm hoping to get out most weekends this season. I don't think I skiied more than 10 days last year due to the conditions and lack of friends who wanted to go out.

    Vail is terrible and Whistler is/was getting there. I love the terrain but hate the village and the lineups.

    Whistler is fucked for sure now. It already had unbearable lines and was expensive, but expect Vail Resorts to double the lift ticket price within a few years. They do this everywhere.

    Adding it to the Epic Pass offers little benefit to Canadians, but it will mean a huge influx of bros from Colorado, Tahoe, and Utah, who can now go there for free as much as they want.
