    ...Too many luxury autos and multi-million dollar homes BEYOND the lake(as well) with higher-priced restaurants that never fill up... and then they whine for mo-money and if they don't get it = higher prices.

    Woa. I'd hate to see this happen seeing as they are starting to get regional recognition and even were mentioned in ski magazines top 20 last year
    2017/2018 Days

    A-Basin - 10/13

    Loveland Pass - 10/6

    2016/2017 Days - 34 (inc. 10 BC)
    2015/2016 Days - 57 (inc. 2 BC)
    2014/2015 Days - 58
    2013/2014 Days - 47 (inc. 6 BC)

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    An example of poor capital planning at its best.

    Maybe Boyne can buy it and put in a Sugarloaf interconnect?
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    Maybe they are going for public appeal and looking for a State bail-out?

    Quite the opposite. Try getting a room/condo in Rangely on a weekend when there's plenty of snow on the ground. Skiing is not the thing in Rangely. Snowmobiling is by far more popular & the town is filled with people pursuing that sport, not skiing. It's one of the more popular areas in New England to go snowmobiling. Saddleback is dead compared to the town.

    Spot on! The Pittsburg, NH to Rangley, ME trail is very popular!

    One night we were eating dinner in the Rangely Inn & the local snowmobile club was having a meeting in the dining room. They were planning a trip up into Canada & across the Great Lakes to somewhere in the midwest. They had trail maps & were planning places they could stay & also fill up with gas. It was quite interesting.
    I've been up to that area of ME. at least 8 times & only twice stayed at Sugarloaf. All the other times we stayed in Rangely.
