For Those Who Scoffed

Sometime in October, our ski equipment was ready to go and we were itching to ski.  We had purchased season tickets to the local ski joint, Pajarito Mountain at the early season discount and were just waiting for the snow.

That, however, was the problem.  Not only had there been no snow, but the long term predictions for snow for our area were not good for Winter 2010/2011.  Truth be told, we didn't really know that at the time.  All we had to go from was last winter here in Los Alamos which was laden with snow and, of course, the year we had no money for lift tickets.  


I am happy to report that after yesterday's last ski day of the season, I have officially gotten my money's worth out of my season pass.  Between the full ski days here and the occasional half days there, I made the risky purchase worth it.  Even after weekends missed due to trips elsewhere, busyness, illness, and two weekends in Tucson recently, I came out $46 on top.

So to those who scoffed and said that the season pass wasn't worth the money this year, HA!

Keep It Real!

  1. On a different note, for those that care. Skiing this year was a blast. I learned a lot but more than that it was great to spend so many quality weekends with my wife having fun. Thanks for the snow!!
