Hey Mesa, I understand some, but not a lot of your logic. Small children have every right to a lift as older children. Are you saying that a 10 year old does not have the same rights as a parent because they ski free under their pass? The base area can be crowded but that is not always the case. I also do not think it requires a new lift or more employees. There are relatively few people who have children in this age group. You are talking about more than likely what represents less than a half percent of total usage. I could see a black out on vacation weeks, but a non-usage policy is not very kid friendly, for a resort that claims to be. Secondly, the ski industry is built on the premise of creating new skiiers and this runs contradictory to that theory. People that I have talked to at Ski Corp. agree that this is a bad policy. I just think it needs to be re-thought. Do you think very small children belong on chair lifts and that it is proper policy for the ski area to encourage this?
