    Ikon or Epic profits.

    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...

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/28/travel/ikon-epic-skiing-crowds.html more information on Ikon and Epic, its impact on the ski industry and how some resorts are changing to accommodate the super passes . Just for the record, I love my Ikon pass.

    Pacific NW/AK/BC Crystal Mountain to discontinue weekend walk up lift tickets

    Crystal Mountain announced that they’re discontinuing walk up lift tickets after 2 weeks of parking lot mutiny & lots of social media complaints. Really curious to see how this plays out once the powder-craze with the late start to the season dies down, or whether it’ll be enough to help. (Or...

    How are the crowds

    Are the crowds the same or better at some of the IKON distentions like JH and Aspen? Was last year a fluke due to the weather?

    The High-Priced Daily Lift Ticket Is Seeing a Pushback

    Mt. Rose-Courtesy of Andy Mink We are finally seeing the pushback against high-priced daily lift passes. One of the trends we saw this past Christmas in the Tahoe Basin was that many day skiers were bypassing the major resorts with their $200+ day tickets and heading to the smaller resorts and...

    Crowds or no...skier visits

    I got interested today in a theme that seems to be popping up in a lot of threads about the "Ikon/Epic" effect. Lots o' complaining about "how crowded" slopes are. So I found this sheet on the National Ski Area Association website. http://www.nsaa.org/media/303945/visits.pdf What it...

    IKON Bling Packet

    Just got this in today's mail. I'm going to slap that sticker on my helmet, sew that patch on my waterproof Arc'Teryx shell, and hang both the pass and the key chain on a lanyard around my neck. Then I'll be all set to jump in the tram line at Jackson Hole the upcoming second week of December.

    Prompted by VR and assorted Ikon threads over time I wonder if we should try to bottom out the perspectives on Locals v Tourists, "new" passholders v longstanding passholders etc etc. It strikes me that there is always lots of griping when there is any change associated with ski hills from...

    Poll How has the EPIC and/or IKON Pass affected you?

    There has been a lot of discussion about VR's expansion, and all of the opinions on if it's a good thing, a bad thing, or just a thing. It got me wondering how many people have bought into the Epic or the IKON model for skiing and how many people are actively avoiding it. How has the model...

    Which Pass to Buy?

    Epic, Ikon, Mountain Collective -- which is best? There may already be an informative thread on this. If so, just point me to it. I'm particularly interested in which would be best in view of where next season's Gatherings will be held (if that has been decided). Thanks!
