    Yeah, that's more than a "slightly higher amount". That is the kill-it-slowly-because-of-significant-complaints price.

    Vail will get rid of it entirely within a year to two.

    Ditto. And I imagine that will be gone within a year to two now as well given Vail ownership.

    Right as they don't play with ski Colorado.

    Radar showed some decent convection so I am not surprised. The way things have been going for Stowe so far they probably got 6" in an hour!

    Holy sh!t Whistler Blackcomb...that new gondola is gonna have figures in the neighborhood of 13,000ft run over a nearly 4,000ft rise.

    That's a beast...

    They seem big on investing into the big $$$ destination resorts but around here things are slow to change. Will be interesting to see how/ if they invest anything at stowe. I wouldn't make any assumption yet.

    Not really surprised. If they have scratched the ACT250 stuff, they probably realize it is a long process. Not to mention, what would they upgrade? The triple or Toll House? I would think both would require so other major changes to support that, especially Toll House. They may still be studying it, could be announced later like Red Buffalo at Beaver Creek this past year.
