Todd Chamberlin from United States writes:

Of all the companies I have ever dealt with Vail Resorts is among the worst. They honestly do not care about their customers, all you are to them is a dollar figure and they will cycle to the next victim. The skiing might be great, but there are other resorts that actually care about their customers.
