    $200 to cut the line at K...

    http://www.killington.com/site/ticke...es/befast_pass

    So Befast for season pass holders, and BePassed for nonpass holders. If you are stuck waiting at least the fights in the K1 Corral will be entertaining...



    Next up to bring in money they will charge you to ski individual trails or glades after a storm.

    I'm sure if it is successful that many other ski areas will quickly follow suit.

    It's called creating revenue without really changing anything.

    I say that given the rampant abuse that occurs via selfish and rude people (usually teens to 25 year olds) in the "singles" line at most mountains.

There is a poll about it on kzone and it has 49 people against it vs only 2 people for it. Wont really affect me as I stay the hell away from those lifts on a peak day but I still dont like it.

    I like the way they put it OK then what is it? A separate lift line that gets to people on the lift faster without getting in front of those in the other lift line!

In a ski situation, I could see them taking say 2 or 3 groups out of that premium queue lane for every 1 they take out of the regular queue lanes to speed up the process. You end up not going right to the front, but that queue lane between having less people using it and more groups being called out from it moves quicker.

    For example at 6 Flags, they have a 3 tier what they call a "flash pass" system where the cheapest pass level, once you electronically log into a rides flashpass queue always you to enter the regular ride queue lane essentually just before you would load the ride, at a time that it equivalent to what the usual queue lane wait it (so that you can go on other rides instead of waiting for the one you flash pass reserved) - their middle level flashpass, which costs about twice what the basic flash pass costs, lets you cut the wait time by 50%, and the premium flashpass, which costs about 4 times what the basic pass costs, reduces your wait time by 90%

    I wouldn't buy a pass like this no matter how much money I had.

    I don't like the idea of a "privileged class" on snow. If you want no lift lines, join Skip and Margo at The Hermitage Club.

    I'm cool with a First Tracks type program where the mountain opens a half hour early certain days. Beyond that, get in line with everyone else.

    if (when) they make this an option for day passes it will really screw the general population on powder days.
