    I notice lift to top of Baldy isn’t included in the choices. Must be already considered a sure thing.

    SE Provo Peak today. SE drop 10:45am . S Drop just after noon. Perfect corn. They got a little less snow that LCC and BCC from the last storm, though.

    I answered 100% as well. Wish there had been an over 100% option. If we want country club conditions we gotta pay country club prices. Like beaterdit said we're likely all in it together in LCC but..... if an Alta pass was $2500-$3000 and all the other Cottonwood resorts kept things the way they have been the past couple of seasons, that could make for a lot more quiet pow days. I'm not really sure I've heard of any reasonable solution that doesn't involve pricing people out.

    Hadn't heard of the Castle lift idea until the survey but the thought is intriguing. Getting to ski that terrain on more of a daily basis and perhaps even during storms would be pretty neat.

    Fixed Grip Double, No grooming.
    I have a feeling the powers that be will go with Grizzly regardless, because "we need more beginner terrain".
    The Schrantz (sp?) got approval to build on their plot (between the legs of the north switchback on the summer road) and I think that's for collateral to let the lift co put a lift tower on their property.

    If I still lived there, $2500 for no ikon/epic, and less traffic would seem like a deal.

    Dropped into S superior around 1030ish this morning. Top third was soft but variable, middle third was heavy mashed potatoes, bottom third was prime corn. It still goes from the top without much of a choke point, but that won't last much longer.

    And yet it looks like Alta is less and less in sync with SB. Alta's passes are already substantially more expensive. Most baffling is '21-'22 AltaBird pass from Alta is $2099 while from SB it's $1499. ???WTF??? Why would anybody in their right mind buy it from Alta? I won't. the difference pretty much covers SB's new and improved $700 parking pass (which they had the vision to double from last year). And there's a similar gap for Alta's other passes. Maybe the "lose our independence" refers to a buyout by The Bird? Help me understand.

    That time/aspect formula was money today at 10,000 ft up BCC. Velvety sweet corn.

    How can you be in two places at once when you're not anywhere at all?

    You guys are looking at the late rates for this year's passes.

    Altabird has always been the same price no matter where you buy it, they aren't gonna change that.

    great spring skiing yesterday but man, the 11yr old and I saw the events leading up to the motorcycle fatality in bcc yesterday afternoon. after the s turn, motorcycle passes us at such speed that 11 yr old says that's how you get in an accident. within 15-20 seconds, we turn the next corner and weíre the first car on the scene. everything's smoking, motorcycle's destroyed, guy went over the car on to the side of the road, everyone's working together, calling 911, trying to help, but he apparently tried passing this black mustang on a corner and ran straight into the oncoming traffic. driver of the car seemed in shock while his wife/gf was pretty hysterical. people were shaken up and glad the 11 yr old didnít see the accident actual happen. vibes to the families impacted.

    I will be out at PCMR in a rainbow unicorn onesie today. Probably Little Kings and McConkeys laps as things soften up. Ask for change.

    SB pricing is most definitely 2012-2022. Correct, Alta is last year, 20201-2022 "to be announced late April." So they'd have to lower pass prices substantially to be in line with SB's announced prices. Yet the questions in their survey suggests prices going up, if anything. Maybe they're stalling on announcing till they get more survey data. The whole tone of it is very weird.

    Like snowaddict said, what you are seeing is late purchase pricing which is always a lot more than early season pricing. Hard to imagine that survey will impact anything for 21-22, particularly given Ikon has already announced Alta is included again (hope I'm wrong though!).

    That is really rough to read about. Glad to hear that you are physically okay. Remember that therapy for emotional trauma is completely okay. It will take time to process. I was on scene at a triple fatality head on collision once and will still occasionally recall that trauma while driving. I cannot imagine being a first responder and seeing it on a regular basis.

    Sympathies to everybody. Jesus, this stuff is very difficult, even just seeing the immediate aftermath. I know, I watched my wife take a 40 foot climbing ground 4 feet in front of me. You can never un-see it. Some degree of PTSD should be expected and you never entirely get over it. Absolutely see somebody if you or the 11 Yr old have any issues at all.

    ^ yeah. years ago (like 15-20?) I saw a kid on a bike get hit by a pickup head on. he ended up living, but it was like something out of GTA, he flew up in the air pinwheeling, we were sure he was dead. definitely shook me up good for a couple weeks, and I will NEVER get that image out of my head. glad you and your boy are alright man.
