Seems to me, Hoodoo has it right. The selling season is mostly over, why not pre-sale next season's tickets, and allow skiers to use ticket the rest of this season?
I may be wrong, but I'd think getting warm bodies to your area may be the most important thing, right now. While they're there, they may buy your overpriced hamburgers and soda's or whatever.
Like movie theaters, who supposedly make the bulk of their 'profits' not from tickets, but from selling concessions.
If I had bought a ticket from G.I. Joe, I'd be really upset the Bachelor isn't honoring them.
Bachelor gave G.I.Joe the ability to sell tickets--it should have been THEIR responsibility to vet whether it was good risk. Not the customers.
I'm pretty sure the old, locally owned pre-corporate Bachelor would have graciously honored those tickets.
What are they losing? People skiing on already groomed trails? Already staffed restaurants? Ticket takers who are taking tickets?
The damage was done. Let the poor saps ski.
