Tough! Vail make the rules my "fellow skiers" will need to live by. Even more so for those who see nothing wrong in the way Vail do things.I'm sure your fellow skiers that would be unable to get a sold out date at the last minute when they try would appreciate your attitude. But good for you that you'll be able to "stick it to Vail" by not cancelling should they tell you they're treated exactly the same as no-shows.
Cancellation = no-show = no need to cancel.
That's how "I interpreted"!
Right from the start I interpreted that to included repeated cancellations that represented a pattern of abuse and not simply no-shows.
