    I don't get it

    Why do people sign up for the website and not post or reply to a single thread?

    Maybe to see attached photos?

    I'd like to know how many members of this site have 0 posts.

    2017/2018 Days

    A-Basin - 10/13

    Loveland Pass - 10/6

    2016/2017 Days - 34 (inc. 10 BC)
    2015/2016 Days - 57 (inc. 2 BC)
    2014/2015 Days - 58
    2013/2014 Days - 47 (inc. 6 BC)

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    I think the very cheap Sugarloaf Summit has some thing to do with it .

    ^Also, as a method of encouraging registration, there are significantly less advertisements on the website if you are registered on the site.

    Registered members just have a banner in the header & footer. Unregistered users also get a rectangle ad in the first & last post on a page.

    I think we have something like 6k registered members (real ones, not bots. At one point we had like 12,000 but there were like 7,000 spambots).

    Of that, probably at least 1/3 - 1/2 have never made a single post, believe it or not.

    For every person browsing the site as a member, there are another 15 - 20 that are just viewing content without registering or logging in.

    Good info. It's been a while since i signed up for this site, do you use that "capcha" image thing that has those really hard words to read that you have to enter to verify you're not a bot?

    I think we stopped using CAPCHA because they were finding a way around it. I forget what Nick is using now, but it works, there are hardly any spammers these days.

    +1,
    I think the Summit has really been the only ticket for Sugarloaf that is in the same ballpark as what the rest of New England resorts charge....so more than a few lurk in hope of salvation..
