Friday February 19, 2021 update to my first pugski post with two photos taken today in front of a mirror after two happy days skiing Little Dipper bumps all days at Heavenly at Tahoe. This is what a lively senior (with a mid-winter tan haha) is supposed to look like.epicski was dave_SSS

Epicpass sent an email indicating my auto pass renewal was imminent so reviewed what the options were for this coming season. Then phoned their office and had my pass changed from Kirkwood only no restrictions senior $469 that I've had since Vail bought the resort to the Tahoe Value Pass senior $399. Vail could have gotten more of my money if they would have offered a Tahoe Local Pass with a senior discount which they do not for unknown reasons?
Thus outside the holiday black out dates will now be able to ski Heavenly 7 days a week and either Northstar or Kirkwood all but Saturdays. That does not matter because I retired in February from my 8-5 m-f hi tech career in Silicon Valley of 4+ decades so skiing weekends no longer matters. Actually I'll enjoy skiing Heavenly on Saturdays because yo yo-ing down Gunbarrel and East Face moguls on Saturdays when those slopes are most dug up and loose by other skiers is perfect for my interests. Additionally the Saturday night party scene in SLT will be easy to slide into from skiing during that day. Also will enjoy occasionally tree skiing Schaffer's Camp chair at Northstar on week day fresh powder days where I would really like to rabbit bounce down some long epic non-stoppers.
