Not as a right more a kinda "we feel your pain" acknowledgement.
Vail Resorts had a couple bad years in Colorado,(this year is great for them) and some bad years here in Tahoe, so some would say that they have some resorts pulling the weight of other places during years like this. Can Vail make an adjustment like you suggest? Sure, but the Tahoe Vail Resorts Locations are losing money like crazy right now, Pouring money into snowmaking, keeping all the retail locations staffed and trying to keep enough staff around so they don't get caught off guard when the snow piles up.
I feel worse for those who are losing jobs because of the low snow year. And what about the ski business' that are hanging by a thread? I know of two business' that are closing their doors because they can't hold on any longer. I suspect more will follow.

During the Christmas Holiday I was thinking, Wow, they just paid $$$ to ski this snow, which is their only chance to ski during the season, and I can choose to go out or not go out until the snow comes. When it does come, I'll still be here and they're back at their desk job(s).
