    Yeah, right!

    If they had, they wouldn’t have had their pants down by all the internet commerce which changes the entire society!

    But perhaps they think they look, but they’re actually seeing their own reflection of the “glory” past in the mirror?

    Not the passes themselves, per se, but the corresponding artificial inflation in single day lift ticket prices that is the "stick" part of this pass strategy. I cannot envision a scenario in which this does not have a decreasing effect on the number of people trying the sport who will then go on to become dedicated skiers.

    The single day lift pass, has always been, and still is, "the gateway drug" to skiing. The average non-skier is not going to try a beginner package, and the next day shell out $900 or $700 for a form of an EPIC pass or even $600 or whatever for a Mountain Collective pass. Even worse is the fact that many people's virgin experience with the sport is not with a beginner package at all, but with a single day ticket & a rental. Many of these people (most?) will never make it to a ski resort with $170 single day tic.

    There is really no way for an analyst to model this, the numbers are too great and the dispersion is too geographically variable and too large, but if this pass world we're living in persists, in 12 or 15 years from now overall skier visits are down, I will not be surprised.
    The multi resort passes may help out small ski areas that cater to beginners - feeder hills.
