PT Wilson: Questioning pass pricing

Why hasn’t the Summit Daily written about the fine print in the Epic Pass ad you publish – fine print readable only with a magnifying glass which blacks out Breckenridge for the Summit Value Pass?

If Vail made the fine print in their local ads readable, they would be handling a season pass-holder revolt.

Why would Vail want to put a negative blackout on Breckenridge and exclude real local people from using their hometown slopes during holidays?

Why not lower the price at Keystone for holiday times on Keystone and A-Basin three-day tickets sold within 70 miles of Summit County? Make using Keystone a positive bargain, not a negative fourth choice (Vail and Beaver creek restricted, too) for locals.

Or maybe you need an additional Summit Taxpayer Pass to help us real locals continue to enjoy skiing every day at a reasonable price.

We’ve been skiing mostly Breck since VR cut the Ski the Summit option. Maybe this increase makes Copper the right choice for value and good service.

Rise up, locals,
