Are the acquisitions ever going to end? I would've thought that BA would be a little less than pleased about the news that, "the empire is expanding."
I like that at least this expansion is half the distance to me than the other ones at Lake Tahoe but I'm still not sure what to think yet.
I got the RMSP+ last year and I'm going to get it again this year so I suppose It wont effect me too much. Maybe this will help drive more crowds to the Vail resorts and leave other areas in the state just a little less crowded.
Think about it like this. They bought those two shithole resorts in the Midwest and then I think they have something in the old country aka the East. Offer up a pass with expanded value that's still cheaper than their current passes. Now they can travel to three states. Spread them out in the snowiest areas, pick up some real estate, control the food/bev and lodging and you monopolizes peoples vacations.
Am I happy about it? No but do I like shredding in Utah? Yes. It makes having a place to stay in PC more accessible if I don't have to go try and get comp tickets from their marketing department/friends.
Vail is an evil corporation though and Rob Katz can go fist fuck himself with a razor bladed glove.

I went to Mt Crescent in Iowa this year for opening day...I didn't know anything about it before going and had never been there. I was shocked to find out that Vail resorts owned it. Never really did figure out why...I guess they are just trying to use it as a marketing platform to the Omaha area.
Went to Utah a couple months ago, we didnt go to The canyons because it was 105/day. Atleast I can ride there free for our trip.
It's pretty awesome to hit Vail/BC and Powderhorn on the way to and from Utah. How is The Canyons compared to Brighton and Snowbird? I really liked it there. I'm assuming they atleast have a nice park?
