Ralph DeYoung: Not coming back

I am sorry to read the Steamboat no longer welcomes the older skiers.

Removing the “young senior pass” prices skiing out of the reach of many seniors. We have been skiing at Steamboat since the late 1980s.

At our age, we no longer can ski seven to eight hours a day. I will be looking for another ski area next year where we are welcome.

It appears the new ski area owners will be pushing seniors out of the sport. My wife and I have had a great time in Steamboat throughtout the years and met many wonderful people in the community but we will not be back in the winter anymore.
