    Crystal Mountain Becomes Alterra

    Is Alterra as bad as Vail? Are they going to ruin RV parking and Northway/Soutback

    One of two things. Kircher fluffed it up and sold it for a tidy profit or his line of credit was all ate up.

    My inlaws are founders, so we're wondering if the lift pass dividends will continue. They have been oddly delayed in form processing this year, except of course for the parking permits.

    Aside from discontinuing the Northback shuttle, Kircher may have improved the infrastructure at the expense of the sidecountry but there were elements of exclusion and a lack of managerial concern for community. I wonder if the new management will be any different.

    Sounds like a plan doc.

    While small $s in the bigger skier budget picture. The season pass pricing thing seems perilously close to Illegal to me. Coercive early sale to secure low price and then underselling that price.

    I'm sure that founders are going to be even more squeezed than they have been recently... CMAC, Condo and Alpine Inn owners too.

    Last founders club meeting I went to, it was explained that the ticket rights run almost with the land, so there is no real way for an resort owner to divest themselves of that burden short of closing and letting the operating permit lapse, which would be a real case of Russin roulette.

    It'll be interesting to go to this years meeting in a month or so


    The forms are to be mailed tomorrow as per the Founders club website

    No. It has gone UP by $100 since the early pricing cutoff and they have only added resorts since then. IOW, the value keeps getting better, especially if you bought early.

    Send an email to customer service. I would be shocked if they do not offer a refund.

    Or, just cancel your season pass, and but a Ikon basic.

    The right think to do is either refund or credit the difference. It would be shitty not to.

    Since Rusty is now CEO of Alterra (when did that happen?), you might be getting some appeasement. He likes to give out resort credits as a peace offering when he pisses people off. I've drank quite a few beers on Rusty's dime at Mammoth. Over priced beers to be sure, but still....

    Rusty became CEO a while ago. He was already CEO in April when he was doing shotski's at the Mammoth invitational with a crew of women, and I do have picts
    He who has the most fun wins!

    From the Ikon Pass website... Why do I feel cheated?

    WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN RESORT SEASON PASS, WILL IT BECOME AN IKON PASS?
    here is no change to your current Crystal product at this time. Any changes to your pass will be communicated after the final closing of the acquisition.
