Frank Charubin: Ski pass expensive

— Well, it looks like I missed my chance to purchase the discounted ski pass for the upcoming season. Has anyone questioned why Steamboat skiing/riding is so much more expensive than most other Colorado resorts? I'm not just referring to the Summit County (day skiers), but also destination areas like Aspen/Snowmass and Crested Butte that offer some great deals.

With our economy re-entering the deep recession, local businesses closing and nonexistent Routt County home sales, wouldn't it be good to encourage more people, resident and nonresident to spend more time here? Might even add a couple of jobs. A real discount ski pass might just do this. It's not too late.
