What's up With Mt. Bachelor's Holiday Pricing?

Letter to the editor.

I’m new to town and am really perplexed by Mt. Bachelor's "condition-based pricing." We had friends fly here for MLK (Weekend) because we love Bend and the mountain and wanted to share it with them.  Was shocked that the crappiest ski day I have ever had in my 35-plus years cost $70. There were really only two lifts running, no visibility and miserable conditions (yes, I get I maybe should have stayed home).
I get that it was a "holiday," but really?  Mt. Bachelor should reevaluate this policy, especially if they want return visitors. Also, they said they were offering everyone a free mid-week pass because the weather stunk, but actually it was a 2-for-1 ticket (if I have to pay for one, I don't consider it free) and it doesn't help visitors who aren't here during the week. Next time, offer a free hot cocoa or something or just be decent and have the prices truly based on conditions! – Lindsay
