Where are the groomers on Vail Mountain?
What gives with the paucity of groomed runs? Only one or two per lift since we arrived on the 29th.
I’ve been reading hints in the Vail Daily about the resort being in trouble, but this is no way to get more customers. My family takes a ski vacation two or three times a year. We decided to try Vail again this year, figuring it would be less crowded than years past.
It does seem to be less crowded, but its difficult to find many runs my whole family can do together, since so few are groomed.
I just checked Whistler, Park City and Big Sky. Big Sky has only a few per lift, but Whistler has 67 groomed runs, and Park city has 40. Is this some kind of austerity program to economize?
