Well that sucks. I always look forward to every year when the prices come out and people bitch about the prices going up and then in the same breath bitch about the crowds.
You want to get rid of some of the crowd and some of the shitshow on I-70? Jack the prices up to $1000+. The majority of that shitshow on the weekend isn't tourists, it's Front Rangers. Get the prices to the point the average gaper wouldn't buy and would just go a couple of times buying day tickets and you'd get rid of some of the crowds.
As far as Vail goes, the backside bowls are great on powder days, but the front side is largely a gaper fest of moguls and cat tracks. Plus, if I had to deal with that clientele and scene on a regular basis, I'd lose my mind. Vail tends to attract a special breed of wannabe Aspen fucksticks.
