    Vail buys Blue - Article Inside

    What amazes me most is how far the grapevine stretches. Who would've guessed that people in Tahoe or Colorado knew rumors about some PA mountain far far away. Two weeks... Wow.

    Aspen/Snowmass 3/30-4/6

    Also explains another new almost twin pair of skis. Salty, I envy you so much. Will you ski the red or the black one?

    Oh shit! I already quit skiing MC and Shawnee because of that, and now this? It there any lift he didn't abuse yet?

    Holy cow. That's like buying a bottle of Remy Martin to compliment a still more than half full Hennessy. Both XO. Have mercy.

    Yeah, Toast totally ruined it with the very first response. What a party pooper. My heart soared when I saw the screenshot.

    This is great, Salty!! Do you think there will be spring access this year to current season pass holders? I was procrastinating all day yesterday and didn't put storage wax on yet. Do post updates!

    3/30 ..Closing Day?

    Your math is abysmal. In reality you paid for the first 8 of your visits, which barely covered December, and then skied for free, you cheapskate! Should be ashamed of yourself.

    That's another misconception. Just look at $189 window prices and the $699 cost of Epic passes as Doug said in another thread. Someone coming to the window would think that wow, what a deal, the pass will pay itself off in just 4 visits and then I'll be skiing for free. What he misses in that comparison is why the price of the one day ticket is so freaking high in the first place. Skiing is not worth $189 a day at any resort. And nobody's skiing for free at Blue. I pay for the contract in advance, they agree to keep the lifts spinning. I'm at a loss on a President's day weekend when every family shows up paying them window prices. They're at a loss on a March weekday when season pass holders can finally ski the trails without feeling that they're sardines in a can. So it's fair. There was a mountain called Alpine that liked to randomly close on their season pass holders. They felt they could really abuse that, also probably thinking along the same lines that it's not profitable to spin the lifts when there are no people. Well, maybe for another reason, but they didn't even up well.pp

    I have a pass. I'm just saying, and not targeting your comment in particular because I saw people commenting similarly before, that whether the mountain loses money on a particular day or not is irrelevant and can't be an excuse for stopping the lifts. Because they do have obligations to season pass holders that gave them a lump sum of money up to a year before and expect to have service available, whether it's profitable on a given day or not. Freaking CB was open just fine on Friday and I had my share of talks today on the lifts from their season pass holders about how BM can't hold a candle to CB.

    19/20 of course. Thinking of 20/21 Ikon pass already.

    03/30 - Salty's big mistake

    Well, my feet are wet, I'm tired and am heading home. Trails that held through the day the best were Raceway, Nile Mile, Lower Cleopatra as well as every other trail that is difficult to get to or from. Prime blacks became choppy in the afternoon. If only there wasn't terrain park on Pharaon! This likely concludes the season for me. It's had its ups and downs, but wasn't bad at all. Many thanks to Blue for sponsoring my last visit to CB this year. Good timing too. People already start diving next week, so I'm gonna be changing gears as well. No spring Colorado this year.
