Pat West 1 week ago on Era of the Super Pass: Vail's 'transformative' purchase of Park City issues a challenge for destination ski resorts like Steamboat

and most of your ski time at those I-70 resorts will be spent standing in lift lines. I would rather risk and occasional pot smelling gondola cabin than waste away in a 30-45min lift line. Plus you need to consider the hidden costs at Vail/BC like $15/day parking, or a long bus ride, and $20 cheeseburgers, vs our free parking and $12 burgers. Vail/BC may entice you to their hill with a cheaper lift ticket, but they maximize profits by screwing you on every other thing, and make you wait in line with the thousands of others that bought the Epic pass.

In my years, i do and have complained about the price of our season pass, but after visiting the alternatives, I see that we do have it quite good here, fast lifts=short lines, big acreage=spreads out the masses, and cheaper alternatives exist for lunch than anything offered in the Vail village.

I did answer.

" I'm the least offender, but feel free to protest my posts and have the editor remove me from this forum."

What did you think this meant? Please report me and get me removed if you think i'm in violation of the rules. You continue to call me a hypocrite, this should get you removed as well.

Right in the Privacy policy and user agreement it says off topic posts will be stricken, and the user suspended or banned. While you and Rhy's football comment are harmless, A poster that regularly comes in to call everyone a name is not adding to the content, is in basic violation of the rules. Being called a name may not be objectionable to some but it erodes the discussion.

Maybe I'm just sick of the negative energy that some posters bring to this forum, and think that others would participate if so much of it was spewed onto these pages. But my beef is really with the Pilot, so I'll just STFU.

I'm not back pedaling, any and all of us that post without anything to say should be deleted, call names for no reason other than to invite a fight, or post bogus opinions to troll out a thread and not allowed back until the stated rules of the forum can be followed. I'm the least offender, but feel free to protest my posts and have the editor remove me from this forum. Hardly a "shame" to be removed from this company. A moderator for this forum could allow people to post their opinions and remove comments that do not adhere to the Pilot's stated use guidelines. Maybe then more than 6 people would participate in these discussions.

Pat West 2 weeks ago on Steamboat hits its mark with Pro Challenge

Where is your account of the positive marketing that the city receives from this event? That's the entire point of Pro cycling, marketing, teams are paid by sponsors, races are funded by sponsors, we as a town benefit from sponsoring this event. It just more than "bump" our bottom line. Exactly how much is Worldwide exposure of a day long event worth to Steamboat? Maybe aug14 did so well because of the exposure during the aug13 event. And to expect this event to cost us as much as CO springs is a incorrect assumption IMHO. This event created more of a impact on a big city like CO Springs, and many more controls need to be in place, here the biggest whiners are on this forum, and traffic is a bit less.
