We just used our season's pass at Highlands Nordic for the 2nd time yesterday, bringing it down to under $200/visit. We did a little better with our Scenic Caves season's pass - maybe $110/visit. It's not exactly charity but I like to support their businesses. I'd rather have more snow though!
Sounds like a rough winter. We've paid off our local pass easily as always. Had big plans for a nordic road trip for the passport that never materialized. Being on sabbatical seems to be rather busy... :)
