"Keep close to Nature's heart...and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean." John Muir
COME SKI THE ROCKIES...THE SNOW'S A COMIN'!!
The ski and snowboard season is here and so it is time to look into that ski pass that will suit your ski-needs and your wallet!
You have a number of ski resorts to choose from and all have their advantages. Location may play a role in your decision as will price.
Think about when you want to go skiing. Do you want to go primarily on weekends like everyone else or are mid-week days a possibility; a time when you can avoid the ski-rush!?
Do you want easy access to the resort closest to you or are you willing to drive to different resorts and experience the new hills and different snow?
These are just a few things you may want to consider before you make the big (end expensive) decision of thee season's pass.
