OK decent explanation.
I just sort of don't get how people can accept being forced to hike somewhere they spend big money to get carried up the mountain on a chairlift. College passes are a lot of money to a college kid ditto youth ones unless they come from a seriously wealthy family.
Seems fucking un-American that a mountain can ethically open a terrain park and make the people who want to use it fucking walk up the hill.
I'd be rioting and breaking shit and telling them to run a chair.
I am not going to hate on Loon b/c the mountains around it really aren't that much better (which is the reason it gets away with dooshyness and is crammed) but Ive always remembered it having a sick park. So it just comes across as them taking liberties making people hike for it.
