    The Epic

    Was thinking about this pass and was wondering why they made the move. It REALLY screws the plans for Vail to be an "exclusive" ski area. Wonder if this is a move of desperation? Maybe the Vail mountain has gotten to be too big and cant afford the smaller numbers that "exclusive" resorts have? This will be interesting, to see how it plays out this winter. It will be VERY interesting to see what the town thinks about the increased volume of skiers and little parking/infrastructure to support it.

    • But some worried that the cheap pass may jeopardize Vail’s high-end reputation. People who spend lots of money to come to Vail don’t want to encounter lots of crowds, said Kaye Ferry, executive director of the Vail Chamber and Business Association.

      “No one’s going to want to spend $2,500 a dollar a night for a room at the Arrabelle so they can fear for their lives with their grandchildren on the mountain,” she said.
