Over the years it has seemed that the ski house crowds age group is getting older and there are fewer and fewer ski house members in their 20s and pretty much no ski houses with people all in their 20s. with the exception of a few the scales crowd is mainly become mid-30s and up.
Why is this happening? and if it continues what will be the future of the ski house presents in Killington? what needs to be done to stop attracting younger crowds to come here and stay here. I know we see lots of them on the mountain but they all seem to leave and not stay in any hotels or spend money in the local shops and restaurants. what can the community do to bring back that younger crowd that will stay here and ski here on weekends for many years?
and please no obvious remarks like the economy is preventing them, even in this economy there are still younger people with money.
No clue where they all went, My ski house is the only one I know of in Killington that is all 20's with 1 member breaking 30.I believe this is because of costs as doing a share house is not cheap.Many of my friends in there 20's would love to do a ski house but simply just can't budget/afford it. Ski Pass plus house,food,drinks,equipment, tolls and gas from NYC add up quickly. An average season in K I spend at least 5K or more depending on my travels and how much gear I destroy.
