I grow so tired of whining yuppies. Oh I had to pay for a flight into Spokane or a taxi from there to Sandpoint. I am so sorry you have all this money and time to use on blowing hot air! Some of us are unable to even afford the gear we need to ride. Schweitzer has the best and friendliness group of employees that you will ever meet. On top of the surrounding beauty of the mountain. Im sorry all you see is the parking lot (last thing on my mind when im going skiing is the parking lot). This was one of the best seasons that there has been and if you were there any day it was open this season you would have been riding some of the best snow in the northwest. Understanding why management would not keep the mountain open for one whining lost soul would take your understanding of seasonal resort business! Obviously not happening with someone so uneducated. So, you go to Jackson Hole in your new SUV or take that direct flight and leave me with my undercrowded mountain paradise.
