It was great when Stowe had the 7:30 chair..now its 8..but I still bet most don't show up until 9..especially with kids.
I think it was mostly an accommodation for Stowe locals with somewhat regular jobs. Lots of folks did a few runs before work. Especially on powder days. Vail isn't going to do that.

I will be curious to hear if Mount Snow continues their 7:30AM AM Express program on Saturdays from early January through mid March for passholders and guests staying at The Grand Summit Hotel this season?

I'm not sure I buy that argument. Wasn't the 7:30am opening for the Four Runner quad only on weekends and holidays?
