In addition, the area in front of The Pendry Residences will be opened up to give the largest ski beach in the world.

This fee is collected on nearly all areas within Canyons except some Sundial and some Grand Summit, Red Pine ($50 price), Hidden Creek, and Colony are not subject to the CVMA transfer fee.
