    Alright, does anyone know what the hell happened at Stevens? Something about the workers walking off the job and being only able to run half the lifts?
    90% of skiing is just looking cool

    I heard from someone in line last week that "worked there" that this has been ongoing for a while and the reason, or one of the reasons why they've had so many "maintenance" issues with lifts. But, this was just gossip in the liftline from someone claiming to be an employee.

    A labor dispute would explain it...I mean, it's peak winter break right now and you have Brooks, Jupiter, Double Diamond, and Southern Cross closed....

    My girlfriend is a long time patroller up at Stevens, and is a big part of the patrol union after the Vail purchase. Sheís on the contract negotiating team for the patrol, and theyíve essentially been deadlocked with Vail legal for 20 months now. Without going into lengthy details, Vail oversight hasnít improved working conditions at Stevens, and the patrol unionized to hopefully have a voice. Sheís been working through entire days of contract negotiations, every month or so, for almost two years, with very little progress. The patrol did a few interviews with media lately and had an informational picket in downtown Leavenworth. If Vail doesnít start bargaining in good faith, the patrol union may step it up. As for the lift ops stuff, Iím not informed about the mechanical state of things, but last week the lifties did do a last minute sorta protest by not showing up. They contacted my gal to talk through some of the things they are struggling with. I know this isnít really any clarity for whatís happening up there, but I only patrolled up there for a couple years and got out before the Vail purchase so I stay out of the gritty details on the politics and just support her as needed. Letís just say, If you have a way to express your feelings to the Vail overlords, the working people on the mountain would appreciate your support. Iíll find a few of the contact methods and post them up here if you all like.

    I did so via the survey they send out after you purchase a lift ticket last week.

    Had no idea.

    “We want Vail to treat ski patrol as professionals,” he says, “and not as a seasonal, expendable workforce to be exploited.”

    That's a tough situation for the patrollers and lift mechanics. VR will slow walk the talks and try and wear down the union folks. That's what happens when you essentially end up with a couple large companies that run most of the ski resorts in America.

    Toadman, thankfully the trollers and lifties see the stalling for what it is, and are getting more unified as it drags on.
