Interestingly, the open letter neglected to mention a good chunk of the "pass migration": Colorado skiers who "migrated" from RMSP. When on the chairlift ride, I spoke to my chairmates on every ride. My little survey yielded 50% of them coming from Colorado!Roughly 50 percent of Ikon Pass holders migrated from a different lift ticket product they purchased in previous years, i.e., window tickets, Mountain Collective passes or a package deal.
And of the Colorado "pass migrators", more of them were migrating from RMSP. Though some "migrated" from Epic, as the Ikon pass is about the same price as the Epic Local.
You got it from the "authority", discount tickets will be "limited".We are developing actions to mitigate the crowding and stress points for the long term. Potential measures include eliminating some promotions, raising pricing of Mountain Collective and Ikon and limiting complimentary and discounted tickets.
So all your previous impression that the low pass price goes hand in hand with disappearance of discount ticket is now officially confirmed.
Further, there's no mentioning of adding new or faster lifts.
So once the parking situation is improved, the currently 10-15 min lift line could potentially goes longer.Solutions? Working with the Teton Village Association we’ve added four morning shuttles between Stilson and the Village, plus a Teton Village employee morning shuttle from the Hampton Inn direct to the Village.
There's no mistaken that JHMR owner doesn't think they can survive without joining either Ikon or Epic. It's probably better for some they did NOT join Epic.
But there's a lot of "spinning away" from IKON being the root cause of the crowding which rings hollow.
