    Eh... don't most gas taxes go towards road upkeep and other transportation related costs? I'm fine with taxing it that way rather than a different source of road upkeep revenue, even if this is...

    I thought about this too. Snowbird launched a ride share app last year, so it has been done before. No idea about the legal ramifications.

    Honestly I'm not horribly opposed to weekend cash grab tactics for parking given it is now SO limited in BCC. The traffic jams getting down are worrysome and something needs to be done. If a resort...

    I imagine Kirkwood folks felt similar. Same with Crested Butte.

    Don't imagine seeing much of a crowd increase ever at Wildcat.

    Agree with this so much. I'll hit at most 3-4 western mountains in a season. There are way more resorts than that on Epic that interest me, so I'll definitely have Epic every once in awhile (assuming...

    This. No chance it becomes a ski trail again. If you aren't making fresh tracks on it on a 12" powder day, you're virtually guaranteed to hit a wall of rocks covered with blue ice. It is still there...

    Didn't see this before I posted. Absolutely agree that Attitash could fit and I personally hope it does fit in as it means there will be investment in the place.

    Definitely see Wildcat going...

    Regardless of how you slice the drive time from anywhere in NE, Attitash is quite different than any area VR owned previously. It is a large, but primarily day trip oriented mountain. That doesn't...

    I feel like Attitash, Wildcat, and Crotched all do not fit in super well. Crotched is a decent ways away from the population center and in the absolute middle of nowhere and Attitash is an aged...

    New this year a $25 roundtrip direct bus from Union Station to ABasin is nice too. I70 is not as great as Utah with the Ski Bus accessing the Cottonwoods, but that plus the ski train to WP make for...

    Agreed with this. Even midwinter ungroomed stuff back east you do not notice a difference.

    The bystander effect is real. Or everyone is mega oblivious, but there isn't a ton to do in lift lines besides watch chairs, so I refuse to believe EVERYONE missed it.

    The school programs there I imagine are such money makers and Vail I doubt will try to grab that market too much.

    Will be interesting to see what Vail does with local management. As long as Wildcat's management more or less stays in place, I care a lot less about this whole thing.

    I don't hate their trail map. While not ideal, it is often hard to depict any sprawling western resort the same way you can draw a Sugarloaf trail map, for example.

    Confirmed the obvious too - no replacement lift for 2019-2020 and no real plans for one in the near term as they "rebuilt 2/3rds" of the lift.
