Slack App Ski Mtn

Help me figure this out.... High Country Blizzard late October - Sugar opens... One month later and App Ski Mtn. hasn't opened yet. You've had the cold weather and time to get open but 4+weeks later and slack App is still giving excuses.... Next week..... This weekend...... And so forth.... I think they've lost it. A month wasted if your a ski pass holder.... And your still not open..... Shall I say it again? I think they are just geared for the Southern tourist with deep pockets and screw the dedicated local who' have been ready and waiting. App has definately taken the Beech Mt. reputation for opening.... Over rated Slack App takes the Loser Award!!!

If you're a devout skier, why would you go there anyway? It's mainly for beginners and ASU students. Sugar is open.

I'm with funker here. If you've waited and waited to ski...
App. Mtn??? Really??

I love Sugars terrain but Beech has the best lifts, which on busy days, makes a huge difference.

OP is right about one thing tho...App. is super lame.

Donavan you don't have to buy tickets, Suger rules mostly but their prices are high

App sets an opening date and never attempts to get open before that. They tell their employees what the opening date is going to be. It would be hard to try opening before that when your employees are set to start at a later date. They also try opening with good conditions. Have you seen what Sugar looked like most of the time they've been open? Hardly with paying what Gunther is charging. Stop complaining and go to Sugar if that's what you want.

But who wants to ski on slush in December? App needs a thicker base to get open and stay open due to its elevation. It does suck for season ticket holders tho.
