While they may not have the snow, their conditions are better primed than any of a dozen other parks in the midwest and east that produce good riders and film. The proximity of other mountains is a poor excuse for their bad business.
Echo's problem is that being park only, they need to figure out how to slay that shit, learn from places like Woodward and Breck/Keystones parks.
Squaw pass does suck and accessibility will never change, they need to be selling progression and hotlaps.
