In my opinion Terry Peak Ski Area is not doing right by their local season pass holders. They closed three weeks early with essentially no notice, made themselves difficult to get in contact with, took over a week to get back with me, and then dismissed my concerns and suggestion out of hand. All I suggested was a small credit towards next year's season pass for all the loyal season pass holders. Now I know they weren't going to be making any money off the day trippers that eat in the cafeteria during this COVID-19 crisis and season pass holders that pack a lunch the last three weeks of the season don't pay the bills but to blame what I believe to be a business decision on health considerations is disingenuous. An attempt to take the moral high ground as a shield, in this case, demonstrates to me how much the local, loyal customer doesn't mean to them.
