    I just love how Vail is willing to sacrifice its bottom line to help the planet. The vigor with which it inspires me to buy an Epic pass has only been surpassed by the sense of purpose I felt buying Nike thermal layers after they made Colin Kaepernick the face of their brand.

    Camelback and Blue on top of Okemo.

    Not much of an eastern lineup other than Stowe.

    So since Epic no longer has A Basin, we are going with A Basin veterans season pass for 199 and that rate applies to wife and children. We are also getting the Loveland season pass which gives us 3 lift tickets to several Colorado ski areas like Monarch and Cooper.

    Believe it or not we will miss Breck and Keystone. Do not really care about Vail and Beaver Creek.

    Vail reported a 9% unit increase (13% revenue) in preseason pass sales through May 28th vs. same period 2018. So I guess a lot of people went EPIC.

    I personally took the dive into IKON due to a planned trip to Taos. As a VT skier, I also prefer IKON's Stratton/Killington/Sugarbush trio.
    2017/18 = 37
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    That won’t happen. To much private land. City has bought a chunk and won’t develop. There is a road in the way. There is Vail land in the way. It won’t happen.

    Announced this morning. A-Basin is now part of the IKON pass.

    I'm guessing in the big scheme of things, this won't do much to change some of the "problems" that being part of the Epic Pass brought them, given their location and the proximity to the greater Denver/Boulder population base as well as the tourism volume that the other IKON resorts in the area help draw in

    One "difference" though...Ikon has only a limited number of days while Epic was unlimited for A-Basin if I remember correctly.

    You remember correctly.

    But I think that won't help the crowding issue. With limited days, people would only go when condition is good. So it'll be equally crowded on days anyone wants to go, e.g. weekend or days after a big dump.

    Fair point.

    Guess the locals with IKON's will use their days early and late, and then the masses mid winter during their CO ski trips. Time will tell...
