To hell with Vail. I have no desire to go to their resorts and fight the gapers while parking in the EPIC parking lot before using my EPIC pass to get on the EPIC lift to ride the EPIC run then stop to eat an EPIC burger and drink an EPIC beer before finishing my EPIC day in the EPIC park then share it all using EPIC mix while I fight the EPIC traffic back home.

Ugh.

You know those "gapers" every one of you pick on and think are below you keep all the resorts and snow sports industry alive. You should probably shut the fuck up with putting them down and thank them. Fucking pathetic every one of you that complains about them.

I fully understand that they keep the industry alive and I appreciate the money they bring in. I just don't want to deal with them. Hence why I stay the hell out of Summit and Vail during the season.

Also, just for irony's sake, I would like to point out that you saying, "You should probably shut the fuck up with putting them down and thank them" is probably the most ironic and hypocritical thing I've seen anyone type in my entire life. Is there ever an hour that goes by that you don't blast some poor newbie on this forum for asking a question that you see as being below you? Most of the time they're just trying to get info on how to spend their money to support the industry. I'm not hating on it, I'm just pointing out the irony and hypocrisy of what you just typed.

If you understand it don't bitch about it.

Also I'm pretty sure I could post my last 20 posts and they would either be random one liners or pointing out a lack of common sense. Not my fault people can't deal with my delivery I don't coddle.

After visiting more and more resorts, I like vail that much more. The only place my family and I enjoyed more this year was Jackson Hole. The past two seasons I saw Taos, silverton, all of eagle/summit county resorts, Revelstoke, wolf creek, steamboat, north star, powder horn and probably one or two more I'm forgetting.....

I like high speed quads, gondolas and very well groomed runs (when the pow is crusty). I enjoy nice places to chill and BBQ while on the mountain. I like paying $650 for a pass to a buttload of terrain. I like living on the mountain.... I like tracking my days and vert.

I want someone to slap me if I ever complain about having unlimited access to over 10 mountains for under $700. It's $500+ for access to one hill on the east coast and $1,000+ for any of the decent Vermont ones. Throw some beers and food in your trunk and you don't have to pay their gouging prices at the mountain.

I happily pay $359 a year for access to one mountain to avoid the bullshit. I park pretty much right up under the lift and have been known to show up with a keg in the back of the truck.

I don't mind the gapers per se even. It is the massive numbers of expert bro brah skiers and crowds and general disney feel.

Hurry and wait in line and hurry and wait and hurry and spend spend spend and wait and spend and hurry and everyone is very wired and stressed out on getting the fun in and it just gets all gnarly.

Its the sheer volume of people they drive.

Its about time they got into Utah it was like their final frontier ffs.
