Really you all must have little problems in life if your biggest problem is having thousands of acres of controlled ski terrain within 100 miles of an American metropolis of 2 million people, and a corporation (which anyone is free to buy shares of, BTW) that has invested billions to give you access to it.
If you have a problem living in the Front Range--where you can make at least $50k, buy a house for $150/sqft, and a ski pass for $600--then you are welcome to move to a remote ski town like Telluride or Aspen where you can make $25k, buy a house for $500/sqft, and pay $1400 for a ski pass.
i70 and vail are too easy to hate on it so it has a good entertainment factor on an internet forum. My cost of living is cheaper living in the mountains than when I lived in the front range. My ski pass is cheaper as well after figuring in gas.
