Holy sheep shit Vail buys Afton Alps

will my current epic pass work at these places?

Not sure but if it does as a Minnesota local you might as well just buy an EPIC pass for what they want for a normal afton alps pass these days.

Any Mt. Brighton in Michigan!

230 vertical feet of pure ice-gnar

Wasn't Mt. Brighton featured in the epic 80's ski movie Aspen Extreme?

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Afton is perfect for what it is.

Yea I hear ya, IMO they take better care of the surface(ie grooming) than anywhere in the metro.....maybe they can talk the state park service into giving up some more land to the resort so they finally expand?

C.B. 12-06-2012 06:56 PM

Expansion would be good but I dont think that would ever happen.

I really like the kinda shitty chalet and food, and the cheap strong drinks.

It's going to turn into a urban yuppie douche fest. Fuck this just gets worse the more I think about it. You can't run these Midwest hills like a western resort.
