I was listening to the CEO of Vail Resorts on CNBC the other day. He said he bought those bunny hills to "tempt" you all out west on vacation to where you will spend your money freely.
Lol, makes sense i guess. The problem is everybody that went out west this year after they started advertising the deals got shut out at Vail, Breck, all of em. They better get their poop in a group for next year, or they're gonna have a ton of pissed off guests. Like me, cuz i'ma gonna try to get out there next season.
i've been there a few times. well worth the trip. good runs that offer different terrain for all levels...tree runs, steep runs, good park, high speed lift or two, and just a good overall midwest hill. i'd give it a go if i were you for sure.
I think they have to. Short runs, long slow lifts equal ridic lines. It'd be worse without so many. Plus, there's no good way to get from run to run at the top. I mean, i link as many runs as i can at afton and it equates to maybe a minute ride.
