    While people bemoan the canyon crawl, I do think its important to remember that it is a difficult problem to solve. The traffic is only really bad on Saturday, Holidays, and unknown sporadic powder...

    Oh well. Ill be damned if some greedy parking fee is going to keep me from skiing. Definitely changes the decision calculus for 20-21 season pass decision though.

    This kind of irks me. I just hope this deters people from coming to the mountain a bit. Would be better if they had an automated rolling system in the canyons. That won't really be possible until...

    I have an ikon pass after a few years at Brighton. Should I pony up money for parking or just park on the road? I always get up to the mountain an hour before opening and avoid the canyon crap show.

    Finally someone got the message. Definitely lifted the spirit to see all the white in Upper Bells Canyon on the drive home from work. Snowbird posted a nice shot of the tram as well.

    Need some info. Hitting Brighton tomorrow. Is it deep enough and is there enough leftover to justify the big woods (120 in the middle) or should I stay with old faithful tool in the quiver (108).

    Brother in law was at Brighton today. Supposedly Milly will soft open on Thursday. Haven't confirmed this, though it won't make muh if a difference for me as I won't be up until the weekend.
