    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?

    2020 Jackson Gathering accommodations- questions, advice, shared/group rentals; etc

    I was wondering if anyone had started a Jackson Gathering accommodations thread, and it appears no one had, so I just did. I was then second-guessing myself with the thought that it’s too freaking early. Then I looked at last year’s thread and it was started August 10th, so I figured, no time...

    Localism

    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...

    Boot Up Areas: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (Don't Forget the Nonexistent)

    Looks like nobody wants to do the dirty work. SO here it is. Since we were on Jackson, I guess I can continue with it. As @James said, A partial roof over an area that is completely open to the elements. Booting up outside really sucks. Especially when it is storming. The blowing snow just get...

    When will the dates for the 2020 JH Gathering be decided? They are decided! 2/23/20 - 2/29/20

    Just curious about the dates. I'm taking my son out to Utah during MA February vacation 2/16-2/22. I'm guessing the Gathering will be in that time frame but if not I may try to swing a second trip to attend the Gathering. And yeah, I know I'm way early. I'm a long range planner; what can I...

    IKON the Lightning Rod

    The linked article reflects the general sentiment of multiple places to which I've been this winter as well as my social media feeds. The numerous reasons for crowding have been discussed elsewhere. However, deserved or not, IKON seems to be the lightening rod in this. My suspicion thus far...

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Jackson Hole trip - best time to go typically

    Hey there. After my horrible season this year I'm starting to think about next year's trip out west. I'm going to check JH off my bucket list. I'm wondering what people recommend for when to go for the best snow in a typical year. I'd be seriously disappointed if Corbet's wasn't open with...
