I don't think you get it Stephen, add up the numbers do you really think the revenue coming from senior or even all local season passes is that meaningful to their bottom line? We are supposedly a world class ski destination and if so the amount of revenue generated from local passes is a pittance compared to the amount derived from tourists. Where is the good will, where is the appreciation for the locals that make their business possible, where is the gratitude for the locals that struggle to make a living here? In the twenty years I have lived here I see little more than opportunism and a deaf ear for those that they can not capture as an under-employed and underpaid worker-bee serving their bottom line.
If locals find ski Corp behavior unacceptable we can speak loudly with our wallets and votes. Don't buy a pass and vote no for any corporate welfare to fund their airline program this November. If our voice is organized and public it will be heard, Like the bumper sticker says; Think Globally and Act Locally. They have taken locals for granted for too long and it's time they wake up to the fact that we are no longer going to roll over a be grateful for their omnipotence. They will continue to ignore the single voice but they can not ignore the united voice! My guess is that they will try to appease the seniors and reduce the price increase, well this shouldn't be enough and we should expect a price rollback for all passes so they are somewhere between the front range passes and our current extorted prices levels. We no longer have to be held hostage, just what do you think the 1/4 cent sales tax is worth to them? Let's find out.
Hey Jim, there a many in town that agree whole heartedly with your comments and feel that we can no longer be held captive by Ski Corp. Unfortunately many are reliant on them for employment and or recreation (children) and have no other alternative, but that doesn't mean they have to like it and or support it. There are many that would like to get involved and organize our efforts to assure that the airline program does not succeed in November. Let's put an end to this blatant corporate welfare in our backyard and take a stand on our unwillingness to be held captive with their price gouging of locals. We deserve better! Please let me know how I can reach you so we can move this to the next level.
As ominous as that sounds Harvey that has never happened and never will. First the delegates are not locked into their pledges and second they have never been used to select a candidate that did not get the nomination via popular vote and delegate count. I agree that the DNC has already seriously overstepped with their cudgeling and biased support of HRC but they are not stupid enough to rob the nomination from Bernie and expect any of his supporters to vote for Hillary. Not only would she lose in a landslide but their party would be irreparably damaged on the level of what the GOP is about to experience. Not that the DNC is playing fare as it is obvious to most observers that they have influenced mass media along with all their party officials and elected cronie establishment in support of HRC and interest in maintaining the status quo. As far as I am concerned they are all complicit in perpetuating this fraud but feel confident that they will not be given the opportunity to steal this election short of orchestrating the unthinkable. Stay vigilant and FEEL THE BERN PEOPLE!
Better yet Tulsi Gabbard as VP and E. Warren as AG. Tulsi would pick up the women's vote as well as veterans. Not sure how her Hindu beliefs would go over but she would be a poster child for all things non-Trump and be a wonderful representative of Democratic and national diversity. Time to FEEL THE BERN people.
Yes Massachusetts was important Scott but Warren has mixed reviews there unlike in the rest of the country. He also picked up OK which was somewhat of a surprise. Eric those southern states that voted for HRC are not likely going to turn blue overnight and the support for Bernie from blue/purple states will not automatically transfer to HRC, remember these are voters young and old that no longer accept the establishment status quo and have real trust and authenticity issues with her. HRC will have to somehow win them over which will be very difficult even considering the alternatives the GOP are offering. The allegiance of Bernie's supporters is far from guaranteed and is testimony as to why Bernie needs to be the democratic candidate for president if we wish to keep Trump or Cruz out of the White House. Time to FEEL THE BERN PEOPLE!
We had a record turnout in Routt county and went nearly 2-1 for Bernie. All age groups but obviously a great turnout from millennial's, truly inspiring. Still amazing how much mass media has stacked up against Bernie and down play his victories, most importantly he won in the blue/purple states and nearly tied in MA that will all go Democratic in the general election while HRC won in states that will most assuredly go Republican in November. People across the country are tired with the lies and deceit of the status quo political establishment ann want meaningful change. Compared to the change/anarchy/fascism that is being supported on the right, Bernie will continue to gain momentum as the month progresses and he takes more meaningful blue and purple states to demonstrate that not only is he electable but more importantly he can win the presidency. Th energy and momentum is with Bernie across all age groups at least for those forward thinking voters seeking trust, authenticity and ideals in a candidate. Still lots of skeptics but most of them are over 60 and "the times they are a changing" thankfully.
Some how FEEL THE DRUMPH just doesn't cut it!
If the boot fits Mark!
Haven't seen any pitchforks but something is brewing. FEEL THE BERN PEOPLE!
Hey Tom if you bothered to get your head out of that shady spot between your legs you would know that even Bernie is not expecting to get more than 40% of the delegates on Super Tuesday although he is expecting to take CO, MA, Vt and perhaps a few others. His path to the nomination comes with the northern primaries and caucuses later in the month and into April. So save your gloating for mid April and then we will listen carefully for the fat lady.
Here is the link for the Pitchforks statement I made earlier in the event any one really cares about the future of our so called democracy.
