    I think that's the 3rd time they posted that exact same article. See that here and there with Unofficial.

    Well, I've skied 4 of the 5...

    Red Mt was outstanding !
    Schweitzer is pretty special too.
    Bridger Bowl is great and has MANY exSR people working there.

    Never been to Mt Rose.
    Not a fan of Gore due to the crowd. Way too many Aholes.......

    Lets see.

    - Customer Service questioning how I received my Comps (30 year NSP Patroller).
    - Smoking in the lift line.
    - Tossing beverage cans off the lift.
    - Patrons not willing to wait in line w/ everyone else... Cutting/ saving spots for people in lift lines.
    - Pushy & obnoxious attitude(s) in Caf line.

    - Parking lot entitlement from some gal "because I'm a season pass holder" - Yeah right, I'll give up my spot for you.

    Kinda reminded me of Killington on a Holiday weekend....

    No worries - Plenty of places to ski a lil further north...

    Sounds like every ski resort south of northern Vermont!

    Interesting...I never had any of those experiences, but I also haven't been there in probably 8 or 9 years now. Wonder if things have changed or if I was just lucky (or you unlucky). All of those things would bother me if I had experienced them.

    I usually get up to Gore 2x/season. One of my closest friend's family has a house nearby so I've been going since I was a little kid. I haven't experienced any of these things.

    That said, unfortunately, tossing cans from the lift doesn't seem to be limited to Gore...I rarely see it happen, but have seen the results on the ground. Camelback is where I've seen it the most (by far).

    I can't stand smoking...wherever it happens, so smoking in the liftline is bullshit to me. But there's always going to be the folks who believe that their right to smoke take precedence over your right to breathe clean air. Again, I rarely see it, but have a hard time believing that this is a specific problem to Gore.

    Same goes with the parking and cafeteria lines...there are always entitled people in this world.

    What I will say is that Gore's terrain compares very favorably to any of the Southern VT hills at a cheaper price.

    The areas where I feel that Gore falls short have little to do with the mountain itself. Falls short in lodging, dining options, grocery stores, beer/wine selection, night life, things to do other than ski, etc. etc.

    That's odd; there's never been "too many" of, uh...... well, anyone, whenever I've skied Gore.
