Review: Galfer Shark Disc Rotors
@mikekazimer: Ok, I'll admit I'm an OCD bike mechanic. Codes are notorious for sticky pistons. If you've gone through a set of brake pads and want to get the maximum performance, all 4 pistons should be individually "manipulated" so they're all progressing out of the caliper body evenly. A quick bleed wouldn't hurt either. As a trail side fix, the screwdriver method is fine, I guess. But you should never really be caught out by fully burned through brake pads.

Review: Galfer Shark Disc Rotors
"If you're going to be replacing your pads at the same time, twisting a flat head screwdriver between the old pads should push the pistons all the way back in" FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, NO!!!!!!!!

Whistler Blackcomb Replacing Fitzsimmons Express Lift in 2023, Some Rolling Trail Closures Expected
@KennyWatson: Logically you would think that but being a Vail employee I have witnessed numerous decisions that make little to no sense since they have taken over. Seemingly, the main reasons for their decisions are targeted towards the shareholder and not the actual customer. I have lived through major decisions about the store I’ve worked in for 20+ years by some middle manager based in Broomfield who’s never even been to Whistler. The level of customer service in so many areas has dropped dramatically since WB was acquired. It’s death from a 1000 cuts.

It's not really a summer issue, but an 8 person Fitz chair essentially dead ending at 4 person Garbo chair in the winter will be absolute chaos. That line can sometimes already back halfway up that slope. They're corporate BS of "expertise in lift line management" is laughable. You can't change the math: one chair that leads into another chair with half the capacity will create longer lines.
