Some of you are not seing the point. I snow plow, so consider that as being in the ski mountain's place. I offer seasonal contracts. You pay me 500 dollars the whole winter, and your driveway will always get done.
If it snows a lot, you make out, if it doesn't, I make out. But I would never give a discount unless I only had to show up once or twice. Why?? commercial insurance, repair costs, loans on the truck, materials cost for salt, loaders, ect, ect. A season pass/contract is a gamble, on both sides. So you say, I do bad buisness for no discount. Now immagine the opposite. We get more snow than average, I've plowed your driveway 15 times, and only accounted for 10, I just lost 250 dollars on one driveway. I don't ask the customers for more money. They took the gamble, and they one out. There is only one exception, and thats the blizzard clause.. but thats something plow related that can't be directly related to skiing passes.
