Shreddin' in the Recession
As we all already know, we are in a recession, which can feel like the great depression. A lot of things are getting harder and harder to pay for, including hobbies and sports. A popular sport/hobby in Utah is skiing, or snowboarding. These sports are expensive to begin with, products alone, day and season passes take a completely different toll on our pocket books.
Season passes can range from around 200 to 1000 dollars for a student over the age of 15. Yes there are those academic deals that some resorts offer, but what if you don't have good enough grades to pull of this feat.
"Brighton has a recession proof deal" Brighton said that for $65 "Brighton's Super Day Pass lets you shred from 9am to 9pm."
To be honest I do not think this is that great of a deal, sorry Birghton, but i for one can't shred for 12 hours, and after 6 hours I don't usually feel like snowboarding much more. Driving home after 6 hours of shredding is hard enough. This does not make a whole lot of sense.
"Everyone knows B-Right-On is the place to be"... but not for 12 hours! I do not think this is combatting the recession very well. A normal day pass is only $50 which allows you to shred from 9am to 4pm, that is more time than i need, and a season pass runs about $500, if you ask me the season pass is what needs to change in price, and not the day pass.
