Default Ugh!! No military discount on mammoth lodging :-(

This year just got more expensive. Last year I stayed twice (juniper & village). Got a discount that was better than AAA. Apparently they did away with it. Looks like I'll have to sign up for AAA now. At least lift tix are still cheaper.

Fuck that..........go somewhere that gives a discount. Call Mammoth and give them feedback. Use the extra money to check out a new hill.

Well in their defense they do offer a discount on tickets...just not lodging.

It's a privilege not a right, now repeat that a few times. Let it sink in.

Very true. A privilege earned by putting others needs before your own...and not just to make a sale. Mammoth companies still give back...just not on lodging. Every bit counts.

Pretty sure I never said they were wrong for not doing it. Just sucks when anything costs more than last time ya paid.

That's not directly directed at you. Just certain people that feel their "career" choices dictate a discount when it's a privilege. Mammoth isn't exactly in a good financial spot right now between the back to back bad seasons, the lawsuit against the town, and the economy.

There are probably a few billion people in the world who would disagree with you there.
The US military was a death machine last time I checked.

There's always plenty of people to disagree with everything. Including your insightful opinion.

I'm confused. Are you saying being known as a death machine is a bad thing? Any countries military that can't become a death machine, is useless.

Fuck yeah the US Military is a death machine. The people in charge of it on the other hand are idiots. If I ever own a business, Veterans (of any relatively free+ Nation) will always receive a discount. There's more to the Military than most, maybe all, who haven't served will ever know. There are even people within the military who are just as oblivious. Of course you have douche bags, guys who just do it for the perks etc.. but what group doesn't?

Even with those type of people, many are willing to put their lives on the line for something. Most I know didn't join to kill people in the Middle East or Asia, most I know joined because they believe strongly in the constitution or an ideology that served as a base. Just because civilians continue to vote for war mongers or fall for some smooth talking politician who sends the military to do something you disagree with, doesn't mean you blame the Military.

Blame the politicians, most of all, blame your fellow voters. Ultimately, in the U.S., voters control the Military. With that said, people, who sign up to have their lives (and families) controlled to the point they can be sent to death for the good (and the bad) of the entire country deserve any perk I can possibly give them if I were a business owner. Luckily, this is still a pretty decent country, where if you own a business you can decide to not give out any perks. Luckily as well, I can choose to spend my money elsewhere.

Who creates a thread whining about not getting a benefit? Especially a benefit to something like a resort? The world is so unfair! I'm guessing the OP was in the Air Force. On the other hand, I've seen threads much worse than this. Hell, I'm sure I've contributed to many.
