    Awesome TR. That place has changed so much since when I first skied there. It is a fun place to ski.

    Vote for Utah ski bus

    There have already been some deaths due to a number of reasons. Population growth and IKON has led to major traffic issues. It snowed 4 inches on Monday and it took me 90 minutes to go six miles down the road--mainly because of a couple cars that lacked snow tires and either went off the road...

    Yes, makes sense. They help the bottom line by relying on cheap labor = foreign help. So Vail relied (too much) upon foreign labor.

    VAIL SUCKS

    The point is that local employees: (a) are not available; (b) are taking higher paying jobs; and/or (c) are not skilled in these areas. For a lot of resort towns, it is usually (a) and (b). The pay for these jobs is not enough to live in the areas. And the seasonal nature of the work is not...

    https://www.nhpr.org/post/ski-down-and-mask-resorts-try-stay-safe-pandemic-skiing-boom Not to give it away, but Cannon sold 1,000 more season passes this season to date. A 20% increase (so 5k to 6k season passes). Very interesting info. That extra $$$ probably has translated into better ops...

    This. I feel so bad for the on-the-ground staff who have to take the brunt of the negative feedback.

    That is a desperate move by them. And are they sharing grooming operators with Attitash or something?

    Fingers crossed a trip there is in the cards for me. It is like a 5-hour drive from SLC.

    Canyon Quad was one of the last things that Pres and SKI did. Pres also did the Skyeship Replacement and (I think) did Rams Head before they sold to LBO. Les and ASC built the hotel, added K-1, boosted the snowmaking (in exchange for giving up Parker's Gore and abandoning part of Sunrise)...
