    Less than 24 hours after the PEAK Resorts acquisition announcement, I received an email from Vail that said, "new mountains in your area are now EPIC". They can do this because they have the home...

    It's going to be way, way, way > 25,000.


    Vail sells over 900k "passes" by itself, plus about 100k of those are those military passes, which are probably barely even used. Then you have IKON...

    Ehhh..... does that include IKON & EPIC? Because if it does, perhaps the "real" number is in the low 20s.

    At least in so much as what people typically think of as a skiing season pass. If it...

    Actually it's now much easier to do that calculus for the very reason you note, the majority are on season passes.



    Early season makes no difference, but Stowe would have likely gone longer...

    There was no audit; so yes, State of Vermont aided & abetted this financial crime.

    I refuse to believe the current explanation, which is essentially that State of Vermont is a bunch of...

    The reason I mentioned Cottonwood Heights / Sandy is that it's right outside the mouth's of the canyons that take you to Solitude/Brighton & Snowbird/Alta, as well as the fact that there's everything...

    Yes, that was definitely going to be my comment.

    Curious how much per night for non-peak & what's non-peak in your example?

    That's a lot of boxes to check, the "no car" thing really knocks a lot of places (most really) out.

    Up until "affordability" became an issue I would have suggested Park City & Deer Valley, but...

    If you add up all of Park City / Canyons, I have to imagine it's bigger than all of Vail / BSB.

    But even if I'm wrong about that, I'm confident the statement that "the size of Park City is a...

    That's really a misconception. While yes, Utah's alcohol laws are annoying & idiotic, you will still be able to drink on your vacation, pretty much everywhere.

    I've skied both & they definitely are.

    Everyone forgets Sundance though, and I'd suggest that's also worth a day, especially if you've never skied it before.

    You can definitely do a ski week (say 9 days bookend'ed) with a family of 5 out west (Utah, Colorado), with say 6 days of skiing, for less than $10k practicing basic S.O.T.C. techniques.
