    To everyone complaining about not being able to use unused lift tickets: does anybody know what the mountain looks like today? Is there even snow anymore after the rain and today's 60 degree...

    Agreed. I had one ticket remaining at Magic that I had already figured wouldn't get used anyway, and now of course didn't get used. But they were close to closing up shop anyway, so I'm not upset....

    I have an unused Magic ticket that I'm not going to get to use, but I'm not going to complain. I'm more than happy to support a hardworking indie operation like Magic. Great people. Can't wait to...

    That sounds like a good season. How was Powder Mountain? I've heard mixed things, but I would like to check it out because it's the last major Wasatch resort that I haven't patronized.

    Fuck you and your bullshit. There absolutely is a chance of catching COVID-19 on the slopes, or rather, on the chair, in the bathroom, in the ticket line. Not to mention you are putting all of the...

    The ski season is effectively over. I would be surprised if the few holdouts are still open in a week. Don't expect things to get better within the next month or two...just look at the exponential...

    I already knew that you were an idiot from your posts begging Sugarbush to open Slidebrook. This confirms it. You're some combination of ignorant, dumb, or just a troll. Get off of this forum. Sorry...

    This season :-(

    Don't get me wrong, I've had some really nice days. That first week of December, I was able to hit up Southern and Central VT for 3 days with pow or leftover pow. I had some...

    Much more informative than the cost of walk-up day tickets is the cost to an average skier to ski for a day. To calculate this, you could take all of the revenue that a resort receives from all pass...

    Like others have said, yesterday was the perfect storm: MLK weekend + powder + lack of (particularly) weekend powder/not a great season so far. Maybe Epic/Ikon had some effect on the margins, but it...

    To your first point about Bretton Woods: pricing is generally dictated by supply and demand. If Sugarbush is charging $139 as their walk-up price, that probably means that either 1) there are people...

    I completely agree.

    All of the talk of high walk-up rates killing the industry is way overblown. People for the most part are savvy in finding deals, I just don't buy this argument that casual...

    I hope you are wrong, but the forecast totals have gone down as the week has progressed. The Wednesday/Thursday storm over performed. I hear that this storm will under perform.

    I disagree with your assessment of Sugarloaf. I don't remember the 2020 plan for Bracket or Burnt Mountain including lifts, just trails being cut, which is what happened. I am much happier with them...

    Population growth and multi-resort passes are the big contributors to the increased crowding that we're seeing at places like Crystal, Stevens, Alta, Snowbird, and many more. I would venture that in...

    Agreed. The reason that resorts on the Ikon Pass will be extremely crowded is simply that they are some of the "premiere" resorts in New England, so they tend to get very crowded during holiday...

    Loon, Killington, Mount Snow, and Stratton are by far the best places to go over MLK weekend. Why would you go anywhere else?
