Have you seen the slope side houses?But are there really that many people to sustain an entire season pass base?
Canyon full pass used to be right up there too, until Vail bought it and combined to form the new Park City. But you wouldn't know it if you see their pass holders.
I used to ski Canyons a lot because my buddy has a full pass, at about $1000, and I got to use their buddy pass. I just don't think of them as "rich". However, they got so much perk in their job they're like living for free. So their income, which is rather ordinary, can easily afford the season's pass.
Bottom line, there're a lot of people who can afford it. Get used to it.
