I want to go badly. And those guys are doing super legit bonks. I'd just be doing regular ol taps.

IDK why PK & Holly aren't participating, and Alpine and Brighton are but their participation is so limited that it's almost not worth trying to work your schedule around it to get a discount

No idea why they stopped, but sure it's a $$$ issue. At some point they probably determined, or guessed (depending on how sophisticated of an accounting team they have and my guess is "not very") that the program was not benefiting them.

Your telling me! Someone tell me why swiss valley was closed the 3 days we've gotten heavy snow and then waited 2 days after that for "grooming" and by the time we could ski the weather was 55 degrees and the snow was almost ALL GONE! Very frustrated with the money I have spent this year for the quality I am getting at these places.
