    I think we will be getting ours back for next season. We didn't get one this season as we were not sure how many days I would be able to do with my knee.
    It was lucky that they brought out the Winter Olympics deal earlier in the year of 5 days for $399 and we picked that up.
    One thing I would love to see is that if you paid for your Hero Pass in September, you could ride September on it. That would be awesome. Will never happen though.

    Trigger pulled last night. Fingers crossed for a good season!! Discovered the terrain park this year so I am sure there will be a bit of practice in that next year.

    got mine yesterday :)

    even with a bung hip I'm very glad I had one this year and could enjoy some of the best days of the season. Season pass means never fretting about getting your money's worth on any one day.

    I've been buying season passes for ~30 years ( with the odd half-season pass when they were around many years ago and snow was late) and never regretted it.

    I was ticked when I missed out on the pass for last year but at least we had one for this season just passed. Have paid for next year's as soon as they came out.

    Come to Falls!!!

    We got the Winter Olympic special this year. 5 day pass for $399.00. We found we were more choosy about when to go so as to not waste a day. When we had the Hero Pass and the Season Pass on the car, we would just rock up. If we did 1 run, we were happy. When we went this year and the lifts were on wind hold until about 11am, we decided not to use one of our passes. If we had the Hero Pass, it wouldn't have mattered. So, so worth it!

    I got lucky this year. i didn't commit to the Hero pass early because i didn't expect to get over to ski at all. So when work situation changed and I could get here, I just booked online for one of the 5of7 day passes to begin with. , The day before I arrived they released the Storm Pass which was $799. No problems with upgrading the online purchase at the office and getting the balance of the season pass. Was up for a couple of weeks, so got 14.5 days out of it. :thumbs:
