Full review

Vail is apparently now being run by accountants and not skiers. On my last two trips, terrain was closed for what had to be financial reasons. I take multiple ski trips a year and frequently go off peak to enjoy smaller crowds. Both last spring and this December, the open lifts were limited and there is no explanation other than trying to avoid paying lift operators, etc. Next year -- IKON Pass.
