Ikon might sell more passes if they had a deal where it was a couple hundred off an ikon pass maybe for new ikon passholders if they have a season pass at a participating ikon resort.
I also see local Ikon passholders lending their passes to friends to use at Blue and camelback. That’s theft of services but sometimes I think like a criminal so essentially somebody with a Blue season pass and a full Ikon pass has 8 buddy passes for Blue or 6 on the base model pass. Crazy
Another thought is that Blue might well more season passes being on the Ikon pass as Ikon passholders discover the new Blue and use up their five or 7 days fast and then purchase an early bird pass around March 1st. Blues thought is bring more people even at a reduced per person cost, and you’ll have more people buying food, drink, gear and other services. With Ski2Live and the twins on Ikon, Blue stands to make $10s of additional dollars on a hot chocolate tap water and some chicken fingers shared three ways.
more ramblings to come..doing THC experiments on myself again…
