    On. Every. Gallon. Of. Gasoline.

    EPIC is maturing (which as I've mentioned before is one of the reasons they're acquisitive), but IKON is still aggressively ramping.

    The other situation that is "bound to settle down" is that these Mega-Passes arent going to be this cheap for long. So given you enjoy it, enjoy it while it lasts.

    I really sympathize for these locals. Especially the families with children for whom $10 or $20 a pop each & every time you ski is a big expense. Honestly, a huge bonus of even being a local is you...

    Correct. Much higher.

    Obviously this will vary by state & vary with the price of oil, but generally speaking the government makes about 6x to 8x more than the oil company does on every gallon...

    Didnt you buy real estate in Stowe? That's why your days went up, not because of EPIC. It's not like you'd buy real estate & then refuse to buy a Stowe season pass.
