You totally missed the point!Do you routinely make reservations at restaurants as well and not show up? This really isn't rocket science. You make a reservation when you legitimately plan to ski.
I still really don't know what you think they've changed. They said how many priority days you would have. They said you could then additionally make "week of" reservations every week. They said abuse wouldn't be tolerated. What exactly is different now then back when this was all announced?
When you make a restaurant reservation and decided you don't want to go through with it, you cancel it. There's always people standing at the door waiting for a table. The cancellation allows the restaurant to sit those who are ready to eat.
But now, the restaurant is saying they don't want to bother sitting those at the door, but dock YOU for cancelling!
