    Sorry kids--not much under the tree this morning I know. Santa is still stuck at the Port of Los Angeles, but check in your xmas stockings for some great IKON pass swag.

    Seriously. I've already started ordering Christmas presents for my kids... it's going to be a back-ordered shit show come December.
    I ski 135 degree chutes switch to the road.

Apparently the 5000 dollar japanese toilets require constant repairs and adjustment. And the house has a lot of them.

    There's no discounts available anymore, right? Had been debating but finally pulling the trigger tonight before the price goes up tomorrow.

    Don't be jiggling the handle too much or you'll go blind.

    You don't want to waste one of seven Abasin days on the ribbon of death.

    Well, it depends. If you're someone who truly will use all of those days later, sure, don't waste them. If, however, you're one of those people who says you're gonna use all your days later but never does, then just fucking go ski the WROD at the Basin.

    Never fails, year in, year out. Skiers will stand in line for an hour after paying good money for the WROD at Abasin early, but ignore a powder day in April.

    Some people are more about the scene than they are about the skiing. And that's fine. Let them buy the mugs, spend their monies in the bars, tipping my friends, wait in their lines, and keep the ski resort making money so they can stay in business. I'm all for it.

    I'll be skiing weekdays, not waiting in lines, and drinking beer on my tailgate. Looking forward to this season, especially a "Normal" season where Abasin isn't on the Epic pass.

    I'd love to see that stats on how many days are left over on Ikon passes at the end of the season. Then break down by how many are used at different resorts. Would be some interesting data.

    Obviously virtually no one uses all the days at all the resorts on their IKON pass. Or even close. And a lot of us use few if any--those of us for whom the IKON pass is the only pass at our home mountain and we don't travel to ski. So how many days are "left over" at the end of the season. Most of them.

    “Us”or “We” as in TGRz, are not the demographic that is in the majority of passholders.

    It would need to be a regional specific data set that showed how many of the limited days were used at the limited resort.

    One thing these passes offer is an incredible amount of data to shift through and I’m just saying that it would be really interesting to see certain stats as they relate to peoples skiing and travel habits.

    That data is for sale, you know. It's the new oil. Alterra has sold it to many by now.

    I just posted a full pass in Gear Swap for $900 with the proceeds going to the US Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame.

    JHMR reservations now live. Go to Ikon Pass website, log in, go to "My Account," look for the reservations section.

    I have run into a few IKON or EPIC pass holders that make an effort to do the 3-4 week pass tours. One dude I rode the chair with at SV was hitting up EPIC resorts from Cali/WB and then to Colorado.

    Another retired dude from Montreal was taking a month off to ski all the CO/UT IKON locations. Then was going to do the NE States a month later.

    Maybe one day when I am retired, I will give it a shot and try to hit up as many as I can in a season. All I know for sure is, I will be at least another day older when I do.
