I'm going next year what are the lift ticket prices at these places?

I've never skied/boarded out west, I'm a hardpack east coaster I guess. Well sometimes we get powder but its usually heavy snow.

I paid $380 for 5 days. 5 days at keystone or breck, any 2 of the 5 days may be used at vail or beaver creek.

They have the same deal for 5 days at vail or bc, any 2 blah blah...

I've seen heavy powder here, but I've also seen pretty light snow. This year the snow is OK, not great...well at keystone anyway. Vail has more snow.

Now, I'm off to BRECKENRIDGE!!!! w00t!

^ I still hate you....

And Jake you are right, I was very unamused that day the chick hit my garage. That was also the day I left Advance. Just an all around bad day in general. The worst part of it was is the chick that hit it was not hot at all.

Big thumbs-up for Mclaughlin Motors. After the side-skirt vs. lift incident, they were pretty darn stand-up about the whole thing. Lujacks would have left me hanging high and dry.

They had me stop in on Wednesday AM and they removed my side skirt for repair. I was just expecting them to fix the clip mounting area with epoxy. I showed up this afternoon to have them reinstall it, and they (to my suprise) had completely reshot the whole thing, replaced the protection overlay, and replaced all of the clips/sockets with new. The only scratches/indents were on the underside and weren't visible, but they filled and sanded those as well.

I have nothing but good things to say so far about them. Every time with the exception of a day that it was raining outside like crazy, they have washed and hand dried my car. Heck, my car was washed three times just for this. Once to check the damage, once after they pulled the side skirt off ('to knock off the salt for you' as the body shop manager said), and after they reinstalled today. Nice guys.

I also get the feeling that they are are truly fan's of the WRX. The service guy that accidentally lifted my car by the side skirt has a WRX (just got one), Lindsey just got one, and I think at least one (if not both) of the parts guys have leggys/WRX's. Every person I've talked to there just raves over how much fun the WRX's must be. I guess they've been stuck in Volvo-Cadillac land too long with the CTS and CTS-V being the only exiting models (save for one of the Volvo R models).

Eric, I'm glad they did you right, sounds like some good people over there!

Well if all goes well I should be picking up my exhaust sunday. I'm kind of looking forward to it not being as loud lol.

Keenan thanks for the new shoes son! They actually look really good on my car!

I've been pretty impressed with them as well. Lindsay and I were talking the last time I was in about my WRX. I told her I would recommend that car to almost anyone. She agreed and told me she was seriously considering one, because she wasn't ready to accept being grown up enough for the new leggy gt (me too).

Now, I'm headed for VAIL! 6 inches of new powder last night, and we have a guided 'tour' that skips lift lines for $120 (over the ticket price ) but still super worth it if youve seen lift lines at Vail on a saturday. The ads they use for it are : "7 bowls. 6 hours. 4 friends. 1 guide. Vail - Like nothing on earth. " Aint that the truth. See you skunks on the flip side.

Sucks about the wheels. WTH. I thought he was in a rush to get all that **** outta' there.

Wish me luck. First open house today, and I've gotten quite a few emails on the house, so I'm pretty excited. Let the games begin.

That's actually a pretty good idea. lol.

We should just sit in umbrella chairls in the middle of the living room and drink beer during the open house.

Did they only use two of the lift arms at opposite corners? That's what it looks like.

Damn that sucks. I've been getting jerked around on that exhaust too, the kid cries about being broke and not having any money and he works out a deal on the exhaust and tells me it should be off this day and doesn't bother getting a hold of me. Then when he does he says it should be off today and now he isn't even bothering to get a hold of me. He even said he has access to a lift... WTF!

I didn't go to bww last night sat my happy ass at home. Maybe we could get together for some doughnut action after this snowzilla storm hits us.

yeah, i wouldn't even have really cared if i had a heads up that it wasn't gonna happen this weekend. i thought we had something halfass planned thursday night, then havn't got a pm since. then he posts on his ad that he had a busy weekend and nothings gonna happen. still don't know wtf is going on. a simple "hey i don't have time, i'll get back to you later" would have been nice.
