    VAIL SUCKS

    Grew up skiing Whittier in the 70's, that place was gnarly for sure. Skied Tyrol in Jackson too

    VAIL SUCKS

    You're wrong about that.... For 15-20 years he was skiing 4-5 days every week. He lived 100 yards from his office in South Ridge. We had to "chaperone" his son BJ as a Jr Ski Patroller for 2-3 years...

    I spent 20+ years pretty close to LBO. Rode the climb & the fall. Used to play cards weekly w/ him and spent a fair amount of time together out on Long Lake waterskiing. 100% Good Guy ! and definitely has the experience & energy to pull off The Balmsams project.

    I'm here either way. Only question is BW vs the Cat. Need to "procure" a Day Tic Have Comps for SR, but will prob hang on to those for later

    3"-4" for the MWV, before it turns to rain. Sat. might be a day trip to BW, Powder dependent... Oh yeah, I forgot. Day trips are out his year.

    Les Otten & Dixville Notch

    The Balsams gets WAY more snow than SR. On par w/ the Loaf. Prob a lil less than Jay. Beautiful area and LBO still owes me $30 for covering his lunch at the Peak Lodge when his CC was denied.

    As a Cat skier and patroller for 50+ years, this is absolutely the worst I have ever seen it. Such a shame that Vail just doesn't care about the lil guy. Once again, several of us are contemplating another offer to buy the Cat. If you didn't read it before, NOW it's even more true

    Been skinnin' those hills since the late 80's. Before Aurora/Jordan was even a twinkle in LBO's mind..

    VAIL SUCKS

    SIMPLE - There was ZERO maintenance done at Attitash this summer. Nothing, Zippo, Nada Vail just planned on showing up in October and turning everything ON.

    VAIL SUCKS

    Correct - It was LBO that built Bear Peak (1994), while owning Waterville, Loaf, BUsh and KMart at the time before the SEC made him divy them up
