That is because you are only driving it in the winter, but if your ideas will take root, it shouldn't be "you" focused, it should be problem focused, and summer traffic is actually worse than winter traffic, albeit more dispersed.

Yeah, those sub-$400 passes and lodging deals I see every week are only there because they hate us. I have a hard time imagining how they could cater to us more.

Some resorts, like Jackson, allow you to park free if you have 3 or more people in your car, and pay if you have more. That might be a decent solution in some places... Also, jennifer has it right, rent a condo for the winter, it's pretty cheap and you only drive up and back once.

Sandbagger. There are large contigents of people in Summit County taht think the cheap front range passes have led to over crowding of the Mountain. And driven off the full week vacationers fron Tx and Ill. ect. Vail associates does a good job. The local Chmbers need to step up and embrace not continue to dis the front ranger.

I came of age in Breck and have numeous freinds that own small shops and resturants and over the years some of these people have been on city council. They still have not embraced fully the weekenders. That was my point. sj
