Yes - I understand that late in the season fresh snow isn't a guarantee. It amazes me that lift ticket prices are so cheap out there. In Colorado they are $100 USD/day, but in the Alps it is around 1/2 the price. Has it always been cheaper, or have ticket prices been in decline with some of the economic instability in the region?
