^^than why the hell did u post? If you're lookin for park, try boreal man. their park in my opinion is way better than n*'s. plus, with the location description u gave i think it might be closer too. dont go to alpine cause they shafted all of us!
Sorry about the price change, but they only have to sell half of the passes, to make the same amount of money. That means shorter lift lines, more pow on the hill, less gaypers in the park, and shorter a walk from the lot. I think what they are doing is trying to better serve a smaller amount of people. I'm not sure you guys were buying passes about 7-8 years ago, but Alpine's pass used to be about 800 dollars then. The locals that have ridden Alpine for years were forced into the backcountry because we were giving the skiing away. They wanted to weed out the people that were only there for the price. All I know is the first pow day and you kids are at Northstar or boring-hill, you'll be BUMMED. Oh, and for the jerk-off (buttflap) trying to tell people there will be no park at Alpine, now the gloves come off.
