Why is the Ski Corp break for seniors viewed as something so Machiavellian? Everybody gives a senior discount - Routt County, American Airlines, my dentist, the National Park Service, every hotel in the United States of America, on and on.

George Fargo 3 weeks, 1 day ago on Bob Burks: Reconsider rates

No one is questioning their right to raise prices or to maximize revenue. What is strange here is raising the senior pass twice as much ($100 vs. $50), 4 times on a percentage basis, after years of raising each the same dollar amount. Raising the regular season pass $100 and the senior pass $50 would seem fairer and would undoubtedly get them more revenue.

C'mon guys, stop with the Business 101 stuff. I am not questioning why or their right to raise prices. In 2010 a Senior Pass was 40% of a regular pass. Over the next 5 years both passes were raised an equal dollar amount which was slightly higher on a percentage basis for seniors but still only brought it to 45% of a regular pass. Last year they stuck to the equal dollar raise which hit the senior pass double on a percentage basis raising it to 48%. This year, all of a sudden they raised the senior pass double the dollar amount, quadruple on a percentage basis. This is what I am unhappy with and would like to know why they have decided to stick to seniors. And don't tell me seniors are rich. I are one and it ain't true.

Conspicuously absent from this story is the rise in Teenager tickets from $500 to $600, a full 20% increase! This on top of an 11% increase last year. Ski Corp - how do you justify this?

Aw Tom, how can you say such things about my hero! I will do just about anything to see Bill back in the White House, anything. The primaries are just so much noise and in November Hillary will beat _.
