    I have worked in this industry for 25 years now, and I have yet to see a positive outcome from shitting on your customers, or potential customers. What's the point? You never look good when you are sarcastically putting someone down. At best you look like an asshole, and at worst, you lost a potential paying customer who is also going to talk shit about you to everyone he knows. Remember, word of mouth advertising works both ways.

    Engage the positive folks, and ignore anything you perceive as negative. Otherwise, you risk alienating folks that would otherwise be happy, paying customers.

    Charging someone more because of their gender is illegal if I am not mistaken.

    You are literally saying that Bromley, Stratton and Mt. Snow are alternatives to Magic for you.

    Not alternatives. But I do ski most places in Vermont, although probably not Stratton any time soon again.

    Perhaps you missed my meaning but I mean on a powder day, or good snow conditions, when I want to ski some woods and double diamonds those other mountains are not an alternative. Taking a longer drive into northern Vermont would be the alternative.

    Likewise in November when it's whoever has the most WROD available it's unlikely I would consider Magic an alternative to Mount Snow.

    Geographic proximity being a secondary factor when I have to drive several hours anyway and ski Killington most frequently.

    From a business perspective, you just described those other mountains as being alternatives to Magic. You are saying that there are days during the ski season when you prefer nearby options over Magic - and that you give your business to those nearby options. Sounds like there are alternatives to Magic to me.

    Fair enough. I think you get what I'm saying, and you're welcome to make your own comparisons between mountains as well.

    Pico and Bolton are the two areas I think of as alternatives to Magic given the terrain and low key / lower price. Maybe Burke too but that requires twice as much driving so that's stretching it. MRG possibly as well but I don't think of MRG really as an alternative to anything, rather it's the inconveniently located place I'd like to ski most of the time.

    I guess it depends on your definition of "alternative".
