The clock is ticking, and you dont want to be left paying extra for a pass.

If you still havent made your decision as to where you're gonna go, I  
think I can help.

With a little help from MapQuest and my TI-89 I have been able to
figure out some numbers for you.
If you ski every weekend while at school, not including breaks, you
can easily ski 30+ days.  I am not including Bolton because I would
hope no one would want to spend a full day there (i.e. on the
weekend).  That being said, check out this chart detailing travel time
and distance:

	Sugarbush		Jay
30 Days	2724mi 60 hrs	3972mi 87.5 hrs
20 Days	1816mi 40 hrs	2648mi 58 hrs

If you go to Jay for 30 days this season that?s over 1,200 more miles
and almost 30 more hours of driving!
For someone with an SUV like me, that would translate to over $150
more in gas money. (gas being 2.22 a gallon, and that could go up!)

Sugarbush passes are only $299 for you Ski and Snowboard club members  
($319 otherwise),
but prices go up Wednesday 11/1!

Call me to get the order form.
