How long ago was your bad experience? I've been skiing MtB 30-40 days a year the last three years and have not had problems with the lift operators. I detest the overlapping dual ticketing system and have seen several people having problems with it but have not seen a negative reaction from the employees aimed at the "guests". In fact I see them being even more helpful since the takeover by Powdr corp last summer. The management would certainly be glad to hear about any sour behavior of the staff.
Lessee, it was July 4 weekend, 3 or 4 years ago, last big snow years. Franky I was disgusted by the treatment we got, who cares if it was the second to last day of the season. The other prize winning comment was from another skier who saw my Red MOuntain ticket on my coat, and sniffed," Eeww, they don't ahve a detachable quad there, do they? I'll never go there.". Har, her loss.
Bend is definately fun. All the lava features are great to visit, as is the High Desert Museum, the brewery and more.
