I've got mixed feelings about this, but I do hope they don't have speakers

@shiprat, if there isn't a completely negative reaction to the screens, there soon will be. Next step, ad hoardings piste side.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@Mjit, where do you ski? I can't remember the last time someone sparked up on a shared lift.


Had it in both France (PdS) and Austria (Ischgl).

Driving up the cost of ski lift infrastructure and presumably debt and lift pass prices seems a risky strategy?

With climate change making the season increasingly shorter and less reliable you'd think they would want to reduce costs.....perhaps go back to cheaper surface lifts in some areas !

That would tend to improve localised conditions by limiting the numbers in some areas. Perhaps not what the majority expect these days however.

I don't think any ski resort increases costs just for the hell of it, they do it to try and offer something better or that other resorts don't in order to attract visitors. According to www.skiresort.info there are 3515 ski resorts in the alps so we as customers actually have a lot of choice over where to spend our money.

Reducing costs is one option but if you're seen to be going the budget route you'll tend to attract the cost conscious skiers. This isn't really what you want with a reducing season as you have less time to make your money. What you want are the more affluent skiers who are happy to buy lunch on the mountain rather than take a packed lunch and go out spending money on food and drink in the resort rather than staying in eating/drinking supplies they carried with them.

I do. I listen to podcasts in the car. I can just leave it in the car, who is going to steal an iPod?

Well Winter Park, I've visited you but I won't be doing so again.
