I disagree, especially in an area that more often than not relies on man made snow to even be in play. That stuff is expensive and the pass is like a legal agreement that holds you to their rules. If you don’t like it then go clear your own approved glade on private or public lands. You’ll probably find that that process too can be very expensive and time consuming, much more so than buying an affordable pass and helping out a small, mom and pop ski area thats at least cool enough to allow the practice.Such cheap BS to hike uphill on a groomed trail when you know damn well there’s a charge to pay. Screw those people.
