    Dear god please do not implement chain checks. Or, at least do not use CalTrans as the model.

    1. Easier access to beer without lines after skiing I hardly eever drink in the resort bars (maybe the patio occasionally) The Elk beer line at full crush is perfectly tolerable - what they need to do is stop showing anything other than ski movies on the TV... I hate the atmosphere that football games create in there compared to ski porn
    2. East peak double for slack country access would be great Yep... although we might come to miss the current peace and quiet.
    3. Accommodation is in desperate need of updating Yep
    4. Chain check at 410 to be effective/safe/fair this needs to be WSP or PC Sheriff not asking less than minimum wage parking lot attendants to argue with irate motorists
    5. Outdoor bar and snack shack at Campbell lodge move the patio shed up there
    6. Remodeled base lodge Yep - better police table camping, left bags, brown bagging
    7. Eliminate permit parking and add valet parking you can take my parking permit from my cold dead hands! How on earth would Valet parking work the flow of incoming vehicles would be impossible to match[
    8. Reroute gondola to top of nway not sure what benefit that would bring.. the crush it would create on the Elk side of Green Valley would be horrible.
    9. Change snack shack back to satay hut see above - would structure stand up in weather conditions at Campbell Basin lodge
    10. Add club at base for ski storage , showers , etc...Club?... Showers? ewwwww.

    There doesnít need to be a chain check, just a Prius check.

    We donít need a gondola on top of Northway, just make it a quad.

    Bike park would be cool if it adds to the bottom line and doesn't slow winter upgrades.

    All prius should be quarantined in Enumclaw until 8am, made to park in F lot, and then held until 6pm every day. Or exploded via RPG if not cost prohibitive.

    0. Lift from B lot to Right Angle. The ability to walk on a flat to get to a lift will make the public very happy.

    From the Crystal mountain website this morning:

    "Q: I have a Crystal Anytime Pass, what pass will I receive?

    A: All current Crystal Anytime pass holders will continue to use their Crystal Pass at Crystal Mountain. Anytime Pass holders, 11+, will also be eligible for an Ikon Pass. All Anytime Pass holders, 11+, will receive an email with a unique promotion code that can be redeemed online for an Ikon Pass. Redemption instructions will be included in the email. Emails will be sent out by October 12.

    Children, 10 and under, Anytime Pass holders will retain their Crystal Mountain Resort Pass for the 2018/19 season. They will NOT be issued an Ikon Pass. If you would like to purchase an Ikon Pass or Ikon Base Pass for a child 10 & under, please visit our website at ikonpass.com. "

    On the bright side, my 9 year old has over a year to save up allowance and/or find a job.

    Thanks. This is good new and at this point, I'm not too worried about the extra $50 I paid for the Anytime Pass.

    It says "Ikon Pass" so I assume Crystal Pass holders will be getting the Ikon full pass ($999) and not the Ikon base pass ($699). Also, I had a friend in Washington state who just bought an Ikon pass and said he didn't have to pay sales tax where as Crystal pass holders did pay sales tax.

    Giving us a full ikon pass seems fair considering the situation. That being said, thank god I didnít get a Cascadia Pass this year since we already get a week at alpental

    Beware the IKON

    FYI, there is no senior citizen discount with the IKON pass. I became eligible this season under the old rules, but CrystalMt customer service told me NO this week. Also, I'm getting conflicting information about whether blackout dates apply to the lower-level IKON pass at Crystal. I'll have to decide whether to pay $1000 to ski Crystal on any good powder day or take my chances with what they decide to blackout.
