    Something tells me that there is a higher percentage of soccer fans at winter park than any other resort. Just the vibe I get...

    That's a good line. Will be stealing that.

    So is WP noticeably more crowded now that it’s Ikonic?

    A + B does not always = C

    The handful of weekend afternoons I've been to the Jane, the parking was more full than I expected and the lift lines were longer than i expected. There are many possible explanations for this. I gotta believe that conditions have something to do with it. Plus weed. Plus marketing.

    Some data to backup what I've perceived at my days at Breck/Keystone/A Basin this year seemingly much less crowded than before, everyone bought the ikon pass and no one bought an epic pass, well not quite, actually, but growth slowed and the stock took a big hit.

    Interesting tidbit ... does it signal the end of Abasin on the Epic pass? This is the last year of their current contract with Vail...

    http://news.vailresorts.com/corporat...920capital.htm

    Keystone Resort is planning to upgrade snowmaking on its opening terrain to a state-of-the-art, automated, energy-efficient system that will assist in allowing the resort to operate more productively in narrow early-season snowmaking windows. This will help to position Keystone to be the first resort to open in Colorado and the U.S. each season with the most skiable terrain, bringing forward the resort’s opening day by up to three weeks each year.

    They used to be the first until the Basin got snowmaking. It was actually pretty fun, much longer run. Kind of scary like a Chinese DH too because everyone was hauling ass on this curvy WROD with tons of rollers.

    One year they had a survivor style competition where they hung a gondola car from a crane and filled it with folks. Whoever lasted the longest won something. Sounded miserable.

    I'd be fine with them going it alone to keep the crowds down.

    Edit: Guessing the Summit Local pass drops in price by $100 with the loss of Abasin. Or maybe a Keystone only option.

    Hopefully this drastically limits the lifties having to repeat 'we cannot scan through your jacket' 1,000,000,000x a day

    Is this speculation, or do you have inside info? If you do have inside info, any idea if the Keystone-Abasin pass will continue? I won't be heart broken if it goes away but it does save me a bit of money as I inevitably ski a few days at Keystone with friends.

    I've always appreciated WP, but I'm taking the year off.
    As a knuckle dragger , Corona Way, Big Valley, Cirque exit, Edelweiss and the fucking bumps have gotten old.

    Looks like an angry inch coming in tomorrow!
    I found my life got a lot easier (and more fun) in regards to getting around a mountain when I went back to skis. I enjoyed bumps on a snowboard but fuck me WP has a lot of them, there's only so many bumps one can board in a day before saying enough is enough.

    Did you miss the part where season pass sales went from 750k to 925k? The stock took a hit because of timing, and because investors don’t know what the hell they’re doing.

    I'll pass.

    Independent A-Basin? That rumor has been swirling for years. I'll believe it when I see it (and would support it)!

    I heard they are planning a hudge parking garage and will be charging $40 a day to park. And they'll be accepting Ikon and Epic passes since they are basically just a restaurant group with snow to ski between pubs and restaurant now. Also heard they were thinking about a brewery (That one actually might be true)..

    The “ultimate pass”, a basin, eldora, and Loveland, with a tram in between them would be so sweet
