    I could see this going either way. Their season pass looks less appealing than it did two weeks ago. A day ticket on a Saturday is a different story. I also don't know how to handicap the intensity with which Vail will go after Pat's night business. My guess is they won't try that hard.

    Ski season is always too short

    Cranmore is in a similar situation but they’ve enjoyed some real investments in the base area in recent years. They’re also more family focused than Cat/Attitash luckily.

    I'd like to see the triple go to HS6. Plenty of trail capacity over there and it would help reduce lines on the Forerunner. I'd leave Lookout double as is for wind hold insurance

    The Patenaude's aren't sweating any bullets over it. Business as usual for them. Snowmaking, snowmaking and snowmaking and affordable lift improvements. Theyll keep printing money.

    The school programs there I imagine are such money makers and Vail I doubt will try to grab that market too much.

    Will be interesting to see what happens with Crotched though. Never was crowded before and there isn't a ton of parking. It is mega out of the way, so I don't see it ever getting TOO crowded. Also anyone else think Midnight Madness might be gone?

    Ragged too for that matter.

    I would think Pat's will be fine, maybe even an uptick in business, especially night skiing if Vail increases Crotched's ticket price substantially. Should be interesting to see. We looked at a night of night skiing at Park City when we were out this past February on our Ikons, a single night was ridiculously priced for the limited terrain offered. We passed.

    Funny, I looked at crotched's web site today and there is now no mention of Vail or the epic pass. Only seasons pass options listed are the Peaks passes. Have to go to Facebook to see Vail mentioned. Strange!

    Added edit: this is now the same for all Peaks areas
