    22/23 Passes

    Epic local, Ikon base and Bromley pass here. Epic to cover the 10 day Vail trip Ikon for early and late season options. We'll see how it goes.

    VAIL SUCKS

    If I get an Ikon for out east we'll 100% be hitting other mountains since the local only has 10 days at Vail/BC we generally hit Breck or Keystone anyhow. I'm just in the camp I wish Vail would consider crowds especially on the trail as a safety/enjoyment issue rather than a good stat to report...

    VAIL SUCKS

    Exactly the Epic 1-7 passes are really just like any pre-paid pack but bundled as 'pass' and counted by Vail as a pass sold. Either way, I don't see the crowd issues seen/experienced this year going away next year. I'm somewhat locked into an Epic unless I want to try exchanging my two...

    VAIL SUCKS

    The !~7% won't really cover the salary and isn't enough to lower the crowding issue some mountains have. The lower priced 1-7 day passes are likely going to make crowding at some even worse.

    Separate from the White Mountain Super Pass that was announced already by Cranmore and BW?

    PSA - How to cancel your EPIC Pass auto renewal

    I've had an epic local since it came out and have never needed to activate it, even the first year when I got the local to replace my old Colorado pass.

    VAIL SUCKS

    I thought they filled them all last Sunday as well. Could tell the lots were filled with how crowded the mountain got between 10:300 and 11.

    VAIL SUCKS

    Both were running parts of the day - when we went over towards Ego Alley around noon it was stopped with folks on chairs, did a lap on Canyon and waited 10-15min for the Grand Summit after as Ego Alley was stopped and empty. Sundance didn't start up until later in the day and was hit or miss...

    Your 2021 Ski/Ride Christmas List

    The lowest profile we could find is the Thule Vector Alpine, looks like you have a Gen5 Outback looking at the roof rack, I don't think Thule's site says it can fit but it did fit fine on our old 2017. It also fits fine on our 2021, total height is around 6'8"-6'10" with it on.

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    When we left Seasons just after noontime we saw a decent number of open spots in E. Probably won't be the case as more of the mountain opens and conditions improve.

    Demo days?

    I'm a big fan of supporting the local shops..so we still have them in the future. Ken Jones is doing a demo day next Friday at Waterville, have to pre-buy the pass at their store but planning on hitting that. I dropped a significant amount of weight since last skiing in 2020 combine that with...

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    Hopefully the weather tomorrow is kind to the mountain, a few more routes down and I imagine a decrease in crowds should make a for a decent weekend.

    The snow and weather report actually said they weren't running Bluebird today in order to maximize snow making on Lodge.

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    So this will be our first winter at Mt. Snow, have skied it a few times in the past but have a seasonal rental this year. One question for regulars, best shop for a tune/hot wax, yeah I know I could do it myself, been there done that not great at it.
