Oh great I've gotta go all the way through town to the freakin' skating rink to get to free employee parking?

“Some days there will be room at Peak 8, most days there will not,” he said. “Some days there will be room at the gondola lots, other days there won’t,” he said, adding that many employees begin their work day before the gondola begins daily operations.
The resort will continue to provide shuttle service for employees from various free lots around town, including near the ice rink, he said.
“My sense is there will be some changes, but we needed to take over management of our lots,” he said. “We need to make sure we maximize parking for our guests who are coming here for skiing. That’s the primary basis for what we’re doing,” McCarthy concluded.
I *did* just have to have signed up to work only red-flag days this year instead of fixed days
Guess I'm getting up earlier!
Should be great for our guests though, and probably will get a lot more folks checking out Peak 7 runs. On another note, I wonder if the gondola is going to change the proportion of people who start/end their day at Peak 8 rather than Peak 9?
