    Looks like DC should start investing in some domes.

    I doubt it would change much.

    The local are either NOT going to ski, or they ski in ... Alta/Snowbird/Brighton/Solitude!

    Will they ski more because it's "one low price"? Possibly.

    But if you look at Epic pass data (sorry I don't have the link, but I heard bits and piece of it as Vail collects all that info), there's a group who ski a lot. They always ski a lot of days anyway. There's a group that only ski so few days that they barely break even (or NOT break even!). They still only ski a few days!!!

    Now, the population explosion of Utah, that's a completely different matter!

    Ikon details released for next season.



    If you’re going to Squaw Apr 8th or later looks like you’re in luck.

    Steamboat appears to not be offering spring benefits so I am well and truly screwed on lift ticket prices.

    Yeah, I'm pretty happy that my gamble paid off. Now if they would just keep June open an extra week (and count that as Mammoth on the pass).

    Any chance you can more part, or all, of your trip to Winter Park?

    No, we’re committed to Steamboat. There’s 6 of us and we’ve rented a place and I very much want to explore it.

    If I ski 5 days for the week I’m there, I’ll drop over $800 for myself. The good news is my wife gets industry discounts, the direct flights there were less than $600 roundtrip for the two of us, and we’re splitting any rental car costs with others. I’ll just have to rationalize the hell out of this one.

    I’ve tried Craigslist and eBay but no luck. Maybe I’ll come up with something.
