That was the Snowbird model pre-Ikon. Now those folks buy IKON passes, stay in SLC, maybe do Snowbird a few days, and go to other areas. The $1,000's of revenue that Snowbird used to get is now reduced to about $18.00 credit from Alterra per IKON pass per day. Why, why a business do that? I guess the desire to be with cool kids is strong.
They want to attract cheap bastards like myself
