So today in my endless endeavors to find something funny I stumbled upon this EPIC FAIL. Seems that Colorado Ski Country doesn’t believe in Vail resorts anymore. Check out this map of all the ski resorts of Colorado, if you can spot whats missing I’ll send you a very special prize. Ok I lied I won’t send you anything well maybe I’ll send over the scary Dancing Rabbi we have here in Silverthorne.
Here’s what the Rockie Mountain News had to say about this.
Look long enough at Colorado Ski Country USA’s new map of the state’s ski resorts and you’ll notice something missing – something that leaves a glaring white space in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.
Actually, it’s four things that are missing – Vail, Breckenridge, Keystone and Beaver Creek ski areas.
No, it’s not a misprint. It’s an on-purpose slight. The state’s ski area trade group dropped the region’s – and country’s – top ski areas after the company that owns them stopped paying dues.
Vail Resorts, for its part, decided to bail on Ski Country after a dispute over the group’s mission.
Vail’s four Colorado ski areas accounted for about 40 percent of the state’s 12.5 million visits last season.
Without the company’s annual dues, Ski Country was forced to cut its annual budget to $1.7 million from $3.5 million in its fiscal year ended May 31.
Apparently, they made up some of the savings by using less ink on the maps.
Now something tells me if you were smart you’d change your mission statement because its Vail Resorts and they pretty much do what they want. I should know I work for one of their subsidiaries. You know its not like anyones ever heard of Keystone, Breckenridge, Vail, or Beaver Creek. Infact I don’t even know what these resorts are or that they exist ( I can see Keystone from my front door). I hope they realize they fuckered up big time with the loss of all that sweet sweet green.
