    Is the 150 days a combined 150 of operation across the 3 resorts or are they guaranteeing that one resort will have 150 days of operation?

    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...
