    It's great that the lift status is updated on the app in essentially real time, but I think it would also be helpful for extended downtime to put the info at the top of the snow report. This was done in the past and worked great. I remember seeing things like this in years past:

    *All lifts except Super Bravo on Wind Hold*

    It may not make sense to do that for a short delay, but I think for a long term thing it can be very helpful to put this information in as many places as possible for maximum awareness.

    Yeah I agree and guess I need to use the app more. I just always see that stuff on the beginning of snow reports at Stowe/Jay/Killington and forget not everyone does it. I mean there was no mention of winds at all (not even that they may affect operations) even through 2pm on yesterday's reports.

    Stowe often leads their report with it and Killington does to just like you mentioned with a written statement at the very top.

    I don't use their app much but stowe has also been sending notifications that I think are real helpful. If I turn on notifications on the days I'm there they send out lift updates if anything isn't running. It looks like the app developer is the same for Bush and Stowe. Resorts tapped or something. Wonder if SB could do this.

    I have always thought they should do something like this. Say give 10% off if you commit to 2 years,... 20% off if you commit to 3 years

    This would be especially useful if a ski area needs lots of cash for one summer, like for a big new lift.

    that's a great idea for cash up front... buy a pass for one year and get 15% off the next season if you buy them together.

    I'm wondering what the price will be for a college pass for my daughter. Will it be less than the for 20s pass?

    And there is the chance that we move, lose interest in skiing (unlikely), get hurt, etc. We may be buying discounted passes for 2018/2019 now that never get used. It's like the quadpacks, except you won't have people roaming the parking lots and FPF with tickets for sale in March and April.
