    Does anyone know how the profits are split between resorts participating in Ikon or Epic. First aspect would be the unused portion of the money collected. Second when skiers visit a resort do they receive a set rate for the person who skis that day. Seems impossible to fairly split up the funds...

    The parking conundrum at resorts
