Vail sold thousands of Epic Local passes good at Stevens Pass in Washington. They weren’t willing to pay market wages, so couldn’t hire enough staff to open the mountain. During peak ski season between Christmas and New Year’s, they opened less than 40% of the ski area because of staffing shortages. They are stealing from people who paid in advance for season passes.John Bravenec via Facebook

Disgusted with the way I was treated. They owe me 2 season passes. Vail is a scum company. Can not believe they can operate in the US.Dean Cloninger via Facebook
Vail’s treatment of its customers is the worst I have ever encountered. It is only that I love Whistler mountain that I continue to pay several thousand dollars for passes. It is unnerving that Vail cares so little.Jako Krushnisky via Facebook
