Out on the slopes
- Feb 3, 2016
I guess the big question is...how many days during the season would there be an issue if Ikon holders just showed up and skied. Would it demonstrably affect the mtn experience? I don' know..but I'd be curious. I really do see both sides...but if you pay for a premium pass (which plenty of people don't) should that come with the ability to use your days when you want? We are now getting into a situation where the overarching Ikon pass policy is clashing with local mtn policy. As a consumer, I guess I have to decide how and where to spend my skiing cycles, travel $ etc but it did piss me off to not be able to ski that Sunday when I was in town. Now..I hear DV is changing their policy to be likeTaos's next year? Can anyone confirm?Totally agree with you on that.
There have been great deal of resistance from locals regarding the Ikon pass. Management is trying to thread the line between appeasement and making the numbers.
I am there most of the season. My take is the locals are over reacting. It's so easy to blame the Ikon skiers for all the ills.
