Well it doesn’t take much observation to know that, this year, the Pass is full of SNOW – lots of it! According to FoP Pass Ambassador, Jay Pistono, the parking lot has been full over 400 times since mid-November. President’s weekend logged the most traffic, with the parking lot cycling through at least 6 times in a day. That’s a lot of cars and people visiting the top! To encourage good behavior up there, local businesses, ProBar, Skinny Skis, Pearl Street Bagels, Clean Snipe and Wilson Backcountry Sports donated reward items for Jay to distribute to those Pass goers who exhibited excellent Pass Protocol. According to Jay, there are a lot of you who make an effort to carpool, control your dogs, pick up your garbage and dog litter, park within designated areas and respect the terrain and your fellow drivers, skiers and boarders. Thank you!
