    K Peak has relatively low downhill capacity and the old K-Peak double was a brutally cold ride. There is now the bigger...

    A) Not on K property
    B) Event had prolonged exposure, indoors, F&B consumed, no PPO, etc. The gondola while arguably is "indoors" has a near if not 100% air exchange each time the doors are opened....

    The big problem with Loon is its popularity due to proximity to 93. I've had quite a few good days there when it wasn't busy.

    Sadly I would have to agree.
