    Gotta give props to K for being such a good neighbor here, Sunapee too. With WB not opening until Mid December I am sure both mountains will benefit from passholders looking for somewhere to go early and then late.

    WB is working very hard to show value after a disappointing year for them. All the right pieces are in place this year and a tremendous amount of work is happening at the mountain. As long as weather cooperates it should be a great year. I know they would love to see new customers stop by for a few runs and a beer to see what they are all about. I can't wait to try the new glade this year.



    Edit: There is a fun event coming up with free season passes up for grabs: http://www.whaleback.com/wp-content/...ASHFORPASS.pdf

    Which is why I say a reciprocal arrangement for K pass holders would be good for them. K has a much larger market to draw from. I'm sure they'd love to sell a few more burgers & beer.

It's just a good will gesture on their part.
    Killington was not interested in reciprocating on this btw.

    It's not Killington who would be reciprocating.

    I agree with you there.

    Would whaleback lose any money if they offered a similar benefit for K passholders? I could be completely wrong but I feel like if Whaleback offered a 50% ticket discount to K passholders they would only stand to gain a few curious individuals who otherwise would never venture over there.

    There is more to it than the actual "deal". Unless Killington markets the mutual benefit to it's passholders the efforts are better spent elsewhere because the exposure won't be there.

    I've passed your feedback on. If you would like to see different offerings in the future please leave feedback on the FB page or email marketing@whaleback.com.

    Doing something with Tenney would be a cool idea!
