Time To Start Saving for The Next Trip

Still running on Pacific Time (actually I'm not but why not milk the excuse while you can) and I'm a little late with Today's post.

With my vacation to California done it's time to start saving up and looking forward to the next one which I hope to take sometime in early February. You know that grueling stretch between New Years and Easter where there isn't any damn holidays.

Next stop, British Columbia or Calgary.

I can't help but think of snowboarding being around all the mountains in California. This year instead of paying the ridiculous fee for a seasons Pass at Chicopee with it's stunning vertical drop of 500 ft. I'm going to put that money towards my trip and go hit some real mountains.

Too tune up and for fun I'm going to get a really reasonably priced Seasons Pass at the best mountain in Ontario, Blue Mountain. It's an hour north of work (but 2 hours back home). I have a friend who lives in town at work so hopefully I can crash there and head to work the next day from there instead driving the crazy 2 hours home just to come right back.

I'm torn between which pass to get:
