    Guess it depends which circle you hang out with.

    A ski resort is no different than any other kind of hospitality business. How you market such businesses contributes to the kind of clientele you get.

    Killington markets itself as the Apres capital of the East. So, you get a fair amount of Bachelor type dudes who aren't always respectful around families. Kinda like how New Orleans isn't Disneyland.

    Virtually every mountain has a fairly predictable clientele based on how they market themselves.

    So when you ski you never ride the lift with strangers or hear others talking or see them on the hill?

    Of course and everyone seems pretty happy and talking about there last run. I certainly dont hear people bitching about the resort.

    I've both received and offered rides up/down the access road... and I've been smoked out in a gondi as a middle-aged man brags to his friends on his cell phone about the "action" he got last night. It all evens out in the end...K is a good place.

    You're not picking up what people are putting down. We're talking clientele, not mountain reputation.

    Try asking skiers at other hills why they dont ski K.
    Many folks I ask say the same thing, LOVE the hill, hate the people (usually followed by something about New Yorkers)

    This strikes me as a reasonable assessment. I would also suggest that once a reputation is gained, it's hard to change. As a father of teens, for years, I've taken my family to Windham rather than Hunter because IMHO, Windham has more of a family friendly reputation. And my impression of Hunter stems from my own experiences from over 25 years ago.
