    Plenty of high school students around here [northeast ski community] without family money that will be getting a virtually debt free college education that will result in a good paying job and have a family that skis.

    I will say that a majority of these kids move west.

    Tell that to all the millennials that have and continue to move into the Front Range.....I think there is a sign at the state line now that says you must buy a ski pass and a mountain bike.

    Friends selling their house in Redmond for 1.4M were told they needed to re-stage to better attract the 30-35 demographic who would be the potential buyers.

    They are renting out their xtal parking pass too.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    And then they are required to bitch about trail maintenance and traffic.

    Aspen season passes went up $90, since they added the Ikon Base.

    https://www.aspentimes.com/news/loca...kon-base-pass/


    Iíll probably only use the Ikon, early and late season, but itís still a nice perk.

    At least you get that option, my seasons pass went up 100+ and I didn't even get any foreplay.

    Who will have the best snow for Christmas? Driving to LA for the holidays from Seattle. Want to stop for a day to use my Ikon pass to ski. Any folks have a sense of where the best snow might be that time of year? My wild ass guess was Mammoth because it's so high, but it's also so far south.

    Probably Snowshoe but youíre on the wrong coast for that. Might want to change your road trip plans.

    On second thought, maybe I don't really need to see the in-laws this year. Anyone in Vermont want a sketchy stranger at your Christmas dinner?

    Few people show up for trail maintenance in the front range. Newbs and old gen are both saying they don't have time for it. Too busy with the 24/7/365 Colorado lifestyle

    That slightly changed recently with "clubs" being formed but the vast majority just makes excuses.

    Anyway....back to corporate ski season passes...

Just because student loan debt crippling a generation is a fun story line doesnít mean itís inclusive of the whole generation.
    My point is, contrary to Bennyís generalization, there is plenty of buying power for skiing in Millennials; there is also a willingness to travel often. Less have kids to tie up their finances and anchor them home on weekends. Come hang out in Seattle, Boston, Denver, Austin and other growing cities. There are a fuck ton of 25-35 yo dinks with plenty of excess income and enough free time to get into skiing; even if it means flying to a new ski area every other weekend. Personally I think Vail and Alterra have recognized this upcoming change in how the skiing demographic is going to want to spend their time and money. They generally donít want to be tied to one ski area.

    If they gave discounts on GoPro accessories, they'd have 'em hook, line and sinker.. Gotta get those "epic" shots pizzaing down black diamonds for their 127 YouTube views.
