    An instructor who reduced my (then) girlfriend to tears and tried to blow 3/4 of his class (girlfriend, mate and me) out of his lesson. Plus a ski school that displayed no interest in our complaint.

    And the restaurant that showed no interest in our patronage in a very disdainful way for no apparent reason. Except that my AmEx card was green.

    I'm staying 200 metres the Riverfront Gondola. If the bus is full. I'll walk.

    I've been to The Great Wall of China. And as spectacular as it is. I have no desire to return. Just a tick on the bucket list. like skiing different resorts.

    I'll do the some Colorado and Utah Resorts, this time. And California resorts next time. And different Colorado the time after.

    My only loyalty is to Perisher Resort. Because that's how I roll. But I've skied 6 different resorts in Canada. And 2 different in US.

    I'm not going to lose any sleep if one employee isn't up to scratch.

    On the front side get someone to blindfold you and drop you randomly on any run. Your challenge will be to identify which run you are on. It will be wide. It will be groomed. And it will be indistinguishable from every other run on the front side.

    I thought subsequent posts went some way to explain.

    It didn't help that I had spent the previous week in Jackson Hole. I thought the place was designed to make middle aged, and middle ability one week a year Americans feel good about their skiing.

    Nothing that pretentious.

    Could you imagine an outsider reading this thread. We're all moaning about, pillows, toilets and free skiing at Vail and Beaver Creek. LOL

    And thats the prob with Vail - no History!

    (although they seem to think the new builds of Euro buildings adds class or something...)
