    Wow. Crazy deal.

    And remember, they're still ADDING to capacity. There are going to be some phenomenal Jay Peak lodging deals a handful of years from now.

    The downside, of course, is that I predict Jay is going to significantly increase lift ticket prices in the next few years.

    Well, they are about $15 under market rate for walk up purchases right now. All the major players in VT are $80+. Jay charges $69 ($64 if bought online). That's the same price as Bolton Valley.

    I guarantee Jay Peak didn't put the money up for the festival. They are all run by promoters.

    That may be true, but surely Jay intended to sell hotel rooms and other things to the concert goers.

    Staying at that hotel and watching shows for a couple of days sounds great. My days of sleeping in tents at festivals are behind me. Just can't do it.

    no doubt they will increase the ticket prices, but I think what we have seen in the past from other ski resort operators with big debt loads, is that they are forced to cut back on infrastructure maintenance and operating expenses and a vicious cycle sets in.

    You could pretty much see this coming.
