Not sure where you're getting that BAKER doesnt have spring operations, BAKER has always been open later then Stevens.

As far as costs go, their diesel costs should be way, since the chairs are now electric/wind powered.

Anyone who knows Duncan or the rest of his family and staff, knows that he is a simple man and is very comfortable with his life and doesnt need to fall into the ways of corporate greed
Yeah, Stevens was sold a year ago to a very large real estate company, owned by a larger investment company. I'm sure they'll be heading in Crystal Mountain's direction more and more. Their sole duty now is to maximize profit. Not just make a moderate profit, like any business, but maximize the returns to the portfolio for investors. Things will change.

It is a serious question. Does DD access the backside via non double black runs? I've never taken it because the signage at the bottom says it serves double black terrain only, which is outside of my skill level.
