Turning people away when lots are full? What else are they supposed to do? Parking on Hwy 2 is illegal. If there's nowhere else to park, there's not much else Stevens can do. They started using the Yodelin lot and busses this year for extra capacity.
Prices on everything have gone up because operating costs have gone up. There's nothing management can do but pass it along to the consumer. You can't expect an operation like Stevens to take a hit, not pass it along to the consumer, and expect them to survive. It's business, deal with it.
You can't compare Stevens (or any other hill) to Baker. They're completely different animals. Baker has kept a much lower overhead over the years and being privately owned they've been able to keep their prices down. And good for them.
ok the season pass for next yr is good for this yr. I have a friend who works in admin . on pow days southern cross is open so you can ride single black diamond all day. and if it's not a pow day by lunch those runs are fucked anyway. groomer days Ty mill and Jupiter are open which again kinda works cause without powder southern cross runs can get bumpy fast.
