Brilliant, just brilliant.

The same people who hate board riders, vote for open boarders and claim “no place for hate” yet I can’t take my family. Because little Susie is a snowboarder. Classic. We are much better off having all you prejudice , racist , ignorant, and entitled skiers, all together on a few mountains.

They are doing better this year in Ohio. What seems like full staff, but still not as aggressive as Snow Trails on snowmaking and it shows. So far i am rating it much better, but still needs work.

When I got to the end of this article and found it was satire I got so mad I drove to Deer Valley and threw my new Burton snowboard though the plate glass window of the bridal accessories shop near chair one.

1st of all, this judge is not from Salt Lake so why is he making such asinine decisions that affect the locals who prefer the brain dead snowboarders stay home and let the skiers continue to enjoy the beauty of the slopes. I have snow skied for 70 years and not once did I fear for my life until I skied at a resort that allowed snowboarding. Snowboarders are dangerous and literally have no idea of proper etiquette on the slopes. My 10 yr old daughter was run over by a snowboarder and he never stopped to see if she was OK. Utahans like segregated slopes; some resorts just for skiing and some for boarders. That 19 yr old from Carlsbad CA needs to stay home with “his boys” and grow a brain. Use your daddy’s money and get therapy for your immature brain “Brah”. You are not welcome in Utah. He is the reason we need to keep some resorts only for skiers and the others can keep the snowboarders.

My son was taken out by a skier and hurt. Punk skier going too fast. Didn’t stop. Till I began choking him in lift line. Your welcome! I tagged him etiquette .. Hippocrates!!! Imagine banning all Toyama’s because of a couple of jerks! Jerks drive Fords and Dodges too. Kooks.

Maybe stick to the golf course instead. Nature isn't bound to the plights of elitists such as yourself.

Had me enough to plan and buy a IKON base plus pass. Never believe anything on the internet. No pissed. I believed it because the ban makes no sense.

Hard to read this and not view all skiers as NIMBYs

The sad part is, many of the quotes from company executives seemed so real.

Brilliantly written. Facts mixed with fiction! Had some good belly-laughs throughout.

See the date on the article.

A judge cannot force a private operation to merge with another for one thing.

Double Wow! I can't remember the last time I started getting queasy from reading an article...reading in disbelief particularly at "...all three ski areas relinquish control..." it was perfect a "wait, what?" moment. The article (and joke) was brilliant.

Wow! I was reading this "story, and I was saying to myself all along, "What, this can't be real" then I got to part about , "Do you know how much money my Dad has?" That was when I thought surely it was a joke.

Great April Fool's joke though!

Really glad it's not true! Especially for MRG!

SKI IT IF YOU CAN!
