    Want to Ski Alta This Season?

    Alta is on the Ikon so skiing 7 days on the full pass or 5 days on the base pass "pays" for it! (note that Alta days are shared with Snowbird) While you're in SLC you can also hit 7 or 5 days at Brighton and Deer Valley, and unlimited at Solitude on Ikon.

    JetBlue Adds Another Western Option Out Of Boston and NYC

    Too bad Telluride is EPIC (I have IKON). I did like this from the article: "The announcement comes as the airline industry looks to pivot from business travel destinations, which have seen severe passenger declines amid the coronavirus pandemic, to areas where vacationers may want to travel."

    Mid December Western Trip - Jackson Hole vs. Snowbird

    Definitely wait. The main problem with Ikon pass at JHMR is they open reservations for tickets to general public on October 5th, but don't open the Ikon to reserve spots until November 9th. So, that week might already be "sold out" by the time you can reserve days. Snowbird requires parking...

    Sunday River found that out and bailed on mtb. The locals (and Mt Abram) are picking up the slack. Sugarloaf still supports but it without lift rides. However they have had other issues lately with land closures by the Penobscot Nation.

    Ski Resort Response to COVID-19

    They probably did make more in the summer but the Cannon tram didn't open this summer due to Covid. For comparison a single r/t summer ticket is $19 (9am-5pm) versus a winter uphill ticket for $82 (9am-3:45pm).
