    Another good recent example of a totalitarian event. Putin wanted it there, so it was there.

    Came in today.

    Bought online for $93.75 (I'm guessing they were a lot more than that a few years ago) and fit like a glove, with the proper BSL to match all my skis to boot (no pun intended).

    Besides, my own state flushes plenty of money down the toilet to worry about.

    No. That would at least make some financial sense, because the state could sell them to smaller areas and at least monetize part of the program.

    But Vermont cant do that, because, remember, it's...

    ROFL.

    Vermont is a trainwreck. So basically Vermonters are subsidizing ski areas now, and my guess is probably only 1 in 100 Vermont citizens (and that may be high) has a clue.

    RE: deals, the CAD/USD is going to put a hurt on Jay Peak this winter; currently sitting at .77 USD. They haven't had to deal with a Canuck dollar this weak in many years.

    I'd have to agree. In the last 65 years of data, there are only 2 other examples of "Super El Nino" events, 1982 & 1997. So I ran the data for those years for the MM snow stake and you get this:
