Jack Smith 5 years, 2 months ago on Walk-up lift ticket prices increase at Steamboat Ski Area

I am an East Coast Fractional Owner in Steamboat who is looking forward to getting to Steamboat for the upcoming week. I was as surprised as most of you to read this article. Given the state of the economy and lack of snow in December and January, I really can't understand how the Ski Corporation is going in the opposite direction from the town. I read the pilot on most days and get all the updates on the " Deal of the Day " and have purchased two for this week. We have, over the past 10 years, come to love the Town of Steamboat and all of the fine people that we always look forward to seeing. We will continue to support the local merchants because we like them.I hope the group that is coming with us will understand the 6.00 per day increase. I am thankful for the great snow of the past two weeks but I guess the Ski Corp doesn't realize that Steamboat is not the easiest place to get to from the East Coast and with sudden changes such as this, I'm not sure the price will justify the effort and expense.
