You have better options other than 49 . If you live up North you have Schweitzer and Red Mtn. Two superior mountains compared to 49. Every year I look at the season pass sales and 49 blows me away with there outragious prices. I myself like to get what I pay for. If you live in the Spokane area go to Schweitzer or Silver Mtn.
I have been to 49 a few times since, just thinking it would be better for some reason and every time I leave I ask myself "why did I come back here" If you dont have that feeling of greatness at the end of the day then why bother. I hope my opinion helps anyone who reads it. thank you.
