    That's too bad about the layoffs. Especially if they're fulltime/year round positions.

    If you read the Ski Area Management report on this, sounds like only 2 people, both GM's at an Ohio and one of the last year acquired Snow-time middle Atlantic resorts got the immediate axe. The rest will be kept on until April or in some cases October and potentially offered different jobs in Vail Resorts, which I somewhat read as a "challenge" for those affected to show what they have and why they should be kept on with Vail Resorts challenge this winter.

    84 out of roughly 10,000 employees (full and part time/seasonal) isn't exactly a massive culling of the heard. Although I will say that this probably won't be the last layoffs that Vail Resorts makes of Peak employees as they go through a season or 2 and see what talent they have and how much consolidation they may or may not to make...

    Rumor is that Josh Faber is Boyd's cousin...soooo read between the lines and think what you will about that immediate ax.

    There are a lot of rich people from NYC area, second home owners, lot of air bnb investors making a bundle, that I'm sure wouldn't hesitate to contribute to a gofundme for the local kids.

    I imagine you'll be enjoying $17 Vail cheeseburgers relatively soon as well.

    Lol another part of the Jesse Boyd drug ring.

    I love a place that supports a dirtbag drug dealer. Those pills will end up in your kids schools. Think about that when you give these dirt bags sympathy about loosing jobs. How about loosing lives because of their actions?

    Won't change my shopping habits at all
    Same here (except replace mt snow with sugarbush in my case). Not only are prices usually better anyway in the off mountain shops, but several of them know me and give me extra discounts anyway!
    Wasnt even thinking of merch, was hoping for food & beverage discount similar to Stowe & Okemo. Maybe next year...

    Well tomorrow will be a month since I upgraded. Still no passes and still no refund. No too impressed with Vail so far. Guess I need to give Jack Frost a call and see what's up. They did manage to spell 2 out of 3 last names incorrectly on our Peak Passes, maybe that's they're excuse.

    Might be faster if you go to one of the ski areas!

    Okemo, Stowe, and Sunapee have capability to print out your hard pass, otherwise you have to get a day ticket until your pass comes in the mail.

    I upgraded on Nov. 16, day before the upgrade deadline, have received my refund and picked up my pass in person.
