Agreed if you're not having fun just being out, then you've chosen the wrong place to live and are into the wrong sport...of course it is mostly front plainers that are complaining, so, I guess you did choose the wrong place to live.
Yes, I live in Vail and yes the San Juans are SICK and I wish I lived closer to them, but any day on ANY hill is a good day.
I would love for you to keep spreading the word about "Fail", that way I can ski and ride on Saturday and Sunday without having to deal with the rest of the Epic pass front plainers that obviously think that Vail is terrible too. By the car count of Frontage road, there must be a CRAZY anti-Vail demonstration going on somewhere in town...if only I could find it.
Ha! That's my rant...let's have some beers and rip on Aspen!!!
