    If Vail did not own KW, few outside this message board would have a KW pass and bother driving up there. Of course that is tongue in cheek, but way more folks have pass access to KW than they did a...

    No one is going to be 100% open by Wednesday. Depending on snowfall and staffing, it might not happen until Christmas week. And that is if we get the big forecast. Not sure why you mention what...

    I do like how KW reports 6" of new on top of grass and a 22" base. Guessing they are measuring that "base" a bit further uphill from the Base.
