    There definitely will be some unfortunate folks who get stuck in the middle of the tunnels and need to skate/flail their way out. I don't think it will be any worse than someone stopping/getting stuck in the normal intersection though.

    They might not work perfectly, but what could possibly be worse than before?

    If you get a Pico season pass, can you ski Killington on the days Pico is closed ?

    No (A Pico-only pass is cheaper than a mid-week K pass, so if they allowed that everyone that wanted to ski K midweek would just get a Pico pass instead)

    No because it'd only be good the two days a week Pico is closed...

    I don't know. If there's a cheaper pass that allows me to ski 7 days a week (2 days at K and 5 at Pico) vs one that only gives me 5 midweek at K per week, the cheaper one is still the one I would get. Maybe "everyone" was a bit strong, but I'd still think a pass priced that way wouldn't make sense.

    At any rate, the fact still remains that the Pico pass is not valid at K when Pico is closed.

    Not to nitpick, but is that true for early and late season?

    If I recall correctly, and by no means am I 100% certain on this, K has in the pass allowed Pico only pass holders to use their passes at K after Pico has closed in some seasons. That tended to be before they rolled out their inexpensive Spring pass on a regular basis a few seasons ago. There may have also been an instance or 2 where because of challenging early season weather and a later than usual Pico opening, that Pico only passes were valid at K.

    I am quite certain that K has allowed Pico only pass use at the mother hill at times in the past. Not so certain how regular an event that is in the last few years though

    ^^^^^THIS^^^^^
    It is not ordinary but I believe if the weather does not cooperate and Pico is closed when it should be open, they do offer at least midweek days at K in the past. But only during Pico's stated seasonal dates.

    What drjeff said matches my memory as well. It is an exception in certain circumstances, but not the rule.
