How is Vail (as the new owners...) treating additional days after you've used your Edge card days? For example, if I buy a 5 day card, if I end up going for a 6th day would that be at a discounted price?

I had the pass the last couple years but I remember you could load additional days onto the 5/10 day cards for $45-50ish? It was $10 or so off the normal lift ticket price. Or do you mean transferring unused winter EDGE card days into the bike park the following summer? I'd assume it's still a thing but call guest services. 

Looks like I will be riding to the end of July this year and will be away a bunch of weekends, debating a 5 or 10 day card.

As salty as I am online, I'm a baby in real life.  If anyone wants a tour of the bike park, HMU.  If there are no clinic visits I hope to ride every day.

Whitesnake2's "A Closer Look" series is up on Youtube, if anyone is interested. Dude gives a good look at some of the trails. KInda neat to see this guy's progression as he rides the park.

That dude makes good videos, nice editing and colour correction. Also I've never done that first rock roll on lower Duffman, need to hit it this summer... usually end up on No Duff or Freight Train.

I wouldn't count on it with big lift replacement/swap push this summer, but, never know?

I saw in an operations email that extended play is every day from opening day.

Gondola is gonna be an absolute shit show with no solar/wizard this year.

Argghhh never thought about the impact on the bike park since they are just doing Excal/Excel for spring skiing operations. Although with the separate Village Gondola line/cabins for bikes it really doesn't change anything except for hikers/glacier skiers? Assuming they run the same number of bike cabins (which is already too low on busy weekends).

Great news about 8pm/extended play, and Creekside is now 8pm as well! Eliminates one of the downsides of parking there, sweet.

Wow, that's pretty cool. I guess the trade-off/decision is you can skip the bottom of Garbo below Red to lap the upper stuff, but at the cost of riding Una Moss brake bump fest (at least it's fast). Garbo is never a choke point for lift line volume. If they could somehow add capacity to Fitz either with a 6-pack or more bike cabins on the village gondola that would be awesome.

Anywoo, I'm always stoked to see any kind of expansion/investment so kudos to WB (and gulp.. Vail?).
