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
well this year stevens is offering way more days than baker. Season should extend into May and they will still be open everyday, while baker only will be open 3 days a week in april. Every resort has to draw a line between making customers happy and whats right from a business standpoint.
