    This drama in Park City is ridiculous. While I understand some of the concerns, at the same time y’all chose to live in a small resort town. They will have to do upgrades if we want the Olympics back (which we do).

      There is just a general disdain for PCMR and Vail Resorts at the moment because they want to build over the parking lots and are implementing paid parking for next season. People believe they have a right to free parking right next to the base of the resort at any time they desire.

        Vail does tend to nickel and dime you to death at their resorts. I can understand the frustration

          That is true. However, that is the downside of having a cheap season pass. It is the Six Flags or budget airline model of running a ski resort.

          For Park City specifically, the town has a free bus network that serves the resorts and Vail has maintained free parking at Canyons. Additionally, should residents not like to support Vail and still like to ski, they have two other ski resorts in their town that are each offering a unique product.

          It actually wasn’t Vail’s idea to add the paid parking. The town made them implement it as a way to control crowding with the new chairlifts going in.

      Maybe in the are of the new Bowl express? Kinda looks like it but I can’t tell for sure. Some of you who know Keystone better will.

        Looks like it was a controlled burn right next to the Ruby Express, doesn’t really look like it was in the Bergman Bowl area

          There were a bunch of slash piles on the west side of the Ruby liftline earlier this month. I imagine that was the fuel reduction controlled burn they’re referring to.

          Despite the late snow, it’s still dry up here. Dillon Ranger District has been conducting several burns this week; hopefully this is the only one that’s gotten out of control.

        There was also a controlled burn about a week ago near Mt. Rose in Nevada. I remembered I could see the smoke. It didn’t get out of control tho

          The burn near Mt. Rose was in the Upper Whites Creek / Jones Creek drainage area, which is about three to four miles away from Mt. Rose as the crow flies, so the resort would not have been in danger even if it was out of control since the prevailing winds usually blow from the southwest.
