A Twenty-Something’s Quest for Adventure Friends

It’s the 17th of January, a week when all the resolutioners begin to drop like flies at the gym. I, on the other hand, had dreams of blowing the blog up this year.

Last year’s Rate Roundup was updated on Dec 14, 2015 with no flakes in sight. There’s hope still. See below for my comprehensive list of lift ticket rates from area ski resorts and other mid-atlantic mountains for 2017. 2017 LIFT TICKET RATES Please note there are about 5 billion pricing...
