A disgruntled local at Schweitzer Mountain Resort, ID, has been letting out-of-state visitors know exactly what they think by scrawling ‘Don’t Come Back’ and ‘Go Home’ on their vehicles.
Alex Fedorov, from California, had the message on his car when he returned from a day’s riding and claimed the message was on other vehicles around him, all with plates from Washington, Oregon, and California.
The popularity of the so-called Mega Passes is being blamed for crowded slopes, lift lines, and full parking lots at resorts across the country. Locals are clearly upset with an influx of visitors to ‘their’ hill. Schweitzer is on the Ikon Pass.
Next season seven Ikon Pass resorts will require reservations to counter overcrowding and the bad feeling that arises among locals.
