    Wow. They did. 2017. Wonder if they have any plans to replace the redundant diesel-powered chair.

Were you attracted to the good snow fall out west this year and wanted to storm chase? Did an unexpected opening in your work allow for free time? Did you come into some money
    Thanks.

    About the mega passes, all I can say is the numerous western resorts I've been to this winter (A-Basin, Crested Butte, Snowbird, Park City, Big Sky are all hopping. Business is good out here!
    About the end of your post regarding business - hello ya things are hopping for sure. This has been the busiest season so far since we have been out here. Conditions have been phenomenal. As far as mega passes, well I am a huge fan after taking advantage of then for a few years.

    You're in Colorado, the base of Epic and Alterra.

    What non-mega pass mountain are left? Are there even remotely the same size and diversity of skiing as those included in the mega passes?

    Deer Valley posted this message again today:

    The Snow Park Parking Lots are currently full. We encourage guests to use the free public transit system instead of parking
    It's March 23rd, yet ski resorts are still packed?
