    Parking is always free at the Crotch, and I can generally park within 200' of the Rocket

    Any increases you see this year are just pretty much business as usual and what was already planned before the merger. What (if anything) changes next year once the merger is actually complete and Vail better understands how each property works will be more telling about the actual Vail impact.

    THIS.

    Deal is not closed, Vail cannot yet effect any price changes on tickets.

    That said, an 11% increase in weekday tickets is a huge YoY increase, and just another, albeit minor, data point supporting the rampant single day lift ticket increases taking place in the industry.

    Interesting note... the website headline for Mount Snow is no longer "Mount Snow is now EPIC" and all Vail literature/logo has been removed. They still have links to Peak Passes available and no sign of Vail corporate anything.

    That is interesting. Not sure what is going on. nothing at vailresorts.com. Interesting that the epicpass.com website is also different, not listing the peak resorts in the list of resorts, just noting it on the side.

    Given that Vail Resorts made some corporate level personel moves via a press release today - some home offices retirements and promotions of various GM's to either home office company wide positions or bigger resort GM positions, as well as announcing that the guy who was GM at Okemo was promoted to a position where he will oversee all of Vail's Eastern Resorts including the Peak Resorts once the deal closes, not sure one should read much into the lack of mentioning the other properties on their respective company owned resorts websites

    And in the e-mail I just received that the last chance for the lowest Epic pass prices is coming up it still mentions that the Peak resorts are "Coming soon" and lists them all.

    Don't read into it. Both sides jumped the gun a little that is all.

    Given that on the latest episode of Vail Resorts Epic by Nature podcast, which was released yesterday (8/2 Rob Katz, Vail Resorts CEO, literally says "and when we close on the Peak Resorts properties we'll have 37 resorts that we operate" I definitely wouldn't read much at all into the changes to the webpages
