How about an extra-special season ticket rate for those over 80 skiers who have been skiing on the mountain for years?

Burke Mountain just gave a pass to a wonderful, loyal 90-year-old skier - hurray...Why don't mountains give a better rate to those skiers who are over 80 and who have skied that mountain for years and years and who still are skiing?
Bretton Woods does this - it is a marvelous recognition to those who have supported the mountain for many years and who continue to ski, but who don't ski as long during a given day....At Burke there is a group of over 80 skiers who gather around 8:30 a.m. for a 'few runs' and then have cocoa and go home - they are usually home before noontime.....Many mornings they are about the only ones on the mountain, too! This would be such a nice gesture to those who have always 'been there'........

Over eighty??? Come on now, how about over 65? Similar reasons: might be shorter days of skiing, first of all, but for their support of the mountain for so long, the mountain should support them in return! Which companies or agencies do not recognize seniors, these days?
