    Ugh...we need a season.
    As much as people like to complain about them, at the end of the day, it's relatively fair.
    I could be down to skin soon.

    Which way did you go up Snowmass? my usual green cabin skin/ski was a weee bit thin

    So, to recap: we paid extra for our premier passes in order to avoid a reservation system and we are still getting a reservation system.

    I understand it...BUT they should of cancelled the Ikon access and give everyone back their $150 if they paid it. No way should an ikoner get a reservation before someone with a premier pass...IMHO.

    Make the rich tourist pay the day rate or buy a premier pass.

    I park at Lot 13 and go up the manmade.
    Fanny Hill-Lunchline-Max Park.
    Not very dog friendly right now, lots of snowmobile/cat traffic, on a narrow run.

    I ended up skinning Ajax yesterday with about 1/2 of the valley.
    Glad we went up early and beat the crowds, I don't blame them for cutting off access to get ready.

    I doubt, other than the busiest of days will the reservation system if/when needed be a big deal.

    Snowmass had the other 1/2. I went up too early. Coming down at 11 it was really firm.

    6 inches midway on Aspen at 7 am. Great help for snowpack. No idea how the gondola is going to function. Line will be to main stree5 with proper spacing.

    That's why they are opening all 4 mountains as much as possible, hopefully a few yahoos will head to Highlands. The newbies will be at Buttermilk.... us DV trash will be at Snowmass with our kids.

    Highlands could have the best surface conditions. I was out seeing Jim at Bootec and they had all the guns roaring.

    Hopefully theyíll have a bunch of ambassadors out in town. They could have the line for the Gondi go down the main stairs and Nellís go down the back, toward the St. Regis.

    I had a great e-bike ride today on the MUTís.

    Snowmass with the kiddo was super fun today. Very appreciative of the employee ski day.

    While I may agree with you ..

    Crowns are business people.
    Skico already takes ze money from ikon, AND premiers.

    Some visiting ikon-ourons stay in hotels, shop at shops, rent cars, maybe rent skis, and buy plane tix. Skico is diversified (entangled) in these industries. Skico is a business, they act to that end.

    Ikon pass and Premier pass are different products, with wildly different price points.

    Lumping the two together RE: reservation system is just another "FUCK YOU" to locals. Unfortunately we are conditioned at this point to be routinely fucked by Ski Co. How did the premier pass jump $300 this year again?

    Yesterday and today were a blast after losing the last half of last season. The kiddos are stoked. I didnít even really get to ski and still loved just being on the mountain.

    8 or so laps on Meadow yesterday and two mid-load laps on village express and a skittles run.

    The 5 yo forgot how to ski from last season and was falling over in the left line, holding on to moms pools, etc. the first couple runs yesterday. Today he was racing down the hill ahead of everyone, making turns and hockey stops. Love it.

    The daughter turns 3 mid December and she is already better then my son his first year. She has been walking since 10 months, is super stubborn and wants to race down the hill already after only 2 days. Fun seeing how different girls develop.

    We really need to do all we can to keep this season going. The valley and workers here really need the money to survive. Itís wouldnít be fair to these communities to shut down skiing if other stuff can stay open.

    I also hope getting a reservation when the time comes for the 4 of us isnít impossible.

    Wife is doing the first locals clinic tomorrow and the kiddos are begging to go again. Not sure I can handle both of them on anything other then the bunny hill and panda is a two person chair...so that doesnít work. Wish the got the other magic carpet at elk camp running.

    Speaking of which...are the magic carpets just a tube of corona? Lol

    My wife will be in the clinic today.

    The skiing in Aspen is much better. The new snowmaking up top, really helps.
    All things considered, Skicoís doing a great job.

    This.

    Good to ski with you and the kids Gretch.

    Most people are doing what they are supposed to. A few covidiots here and there. An amazing amount of out of towners and many foreigners!? If not, many are not english speakers, which has made some of the mask wearing messaging interesting.
