    Problem is that proving you can ski out west for much less than $10,000 for a family of 5 (which I would assume) has nothing to do with the costs for going to Switzerland.

    Not a rant against EPIC/IKON just a simple demo of why those passes make no sense for a skier like me. As such, there is no way my family of 5 is going to ski in Zermatt for less...

    So the cost of $8875 for a family of 5 was $8875 without ski passes. This leaves $1125 or $225 per person for ski passes.

    Switzerland in general is pretty expensive.

    Less so if you're going solo or as a couple, much easier to skimp on some things to save a bit.

    Not the case for a family of 5 like mine. Good luck...

    The doldrums of August are upon us. Got out on Rye Lake 8/2. Same deal as the past few weeks, a couple of bass for each angler, nothing special.

    Weather was very nice.

    Sounds correct.

    Vail closes all of their ski areas by mid-April.

    So does this mean there is no longer any late season option for Vail/Peaks/Epic passholders?

    That would suck for K passholders like myself.
