    Agreed on being a Borvig, the square towers, tapered crossarms, and that bail design were common in the early 70s.

    Boyne is the last corporate group open, but I don't see it lasting. Summit at Snoqualmie is passholders and existing ticketholders only starting tomorrow, no new online or walkup ticket sales.

    It's certainly possible that K could offer it in the future, some mountains (I believe Jackson Hole, Aspen, and maybe a few others) I've heard are offering Ikon for free to their top tier passholders.
