    My comment deals with crowding at these and other IKON resorts.



    Parking, yes. Big problem. Traffic is as well. IIRC you only come out once a year or so and may be out here at most a week...

    Actually, I didn't. I did respond to that and admitted it. I had edited the comment to be clearer.

    Population growth is part of the mix, but the biggest change in the past two seasons has been this pass product.

    I think that they should give 10 DAYS to Ikon passholders next year and see what happens [/end sarcasm] :roll:

    Taking this megapass concept to the extreme.

    This.

    The pinch points for IKON are from ski areas that are CLOSE to major metropolitan areas. How many posts about the Utah areas have we seen complaining of crowds from IKON (other than from...
