    VAIL SUCKS

    I viewed the, "you MUST wear a certain color coat" as a warning sign.

    Do you like bridges? I have a nifty one in Brooklyn I'd like to unload; good price too.

    Skier dies at Whiteface

    Uhhh.... horrible. Were the conditions not great the other day? Whiteface of all places is not a cakewalk under poor conditions.

    COVID concerns in the Northeast

    I have a feeling you're going to be hearing about this study soon. And that there's going to be a lot of revisionist history among politicians in the coming years. For those who dont like reading scientific studies, across 10 different nations they found no statistically significant benefit of...

    Killington or whiteface for a beginner?

    Neither Killington, nor Whiteface are the best for beginners, but Whiteface has got to be the worst place possible for beginner terrain, so it's Killington by default in this two-choice question. It shouldnt even be a debate. Lake Placid is about infinity times better than Rutland though is...

    COVID concerns in the Northeast

    I doubt it has anything to do with conservative, moderate, or liberal, but simply the fact pretty much everyone of all stripes is "coronavirus fatigued" at this point, and some percentage of people simply cant handle that fatigue very well. I live in one of the most liberal states in America &...

    VAIL SUCKS

    This is one of the problems with all of these bolt-on acquisition companies, regardless of the industry. Once the low-hanging fruit gets plucked you start paying more for poorer targets. It's gets worse when copy-cats enter the picture (Alterra, of course, in this instance is the copy-cat).

    VAIL SUCKS

    Vail's never sold a property, right? If we see them sell a resort (probably calling it a "non-core assett), that might be a tell.

    Sitting Bench ski kits

    For this job it would be fine, just put the ski in a vise.

    Sitting Bench ski kits

    I think a reciprocating saw would be a better tool for that job. I have the DeWalt cordless 20v, and it's awesome. You can get different blades for cutting various material (wood, metal, etc..).

    Sitting Bench ski kits

    I havent seen one encased in wood like that. It's funny, that's a much nicer bench than the ones solely make from skis, but I think I actually like the ones made only from skis better. Either was it seems like a great coronavirus project

    VAIL SUCKS

    I find it hard to believe KSL & HCC arent going to be looking for a liquidity event for Alterra. I've always assumed as much. Frankly, now would be a decent time to do so via the SPAC craziness.

    VAIL SUCKS

    Full quote: “We certainly apologize for any confusion, but we were intentional in specifying ‘mandatory stay-at-home orders’ versus ‘travel restrictions’ on our website and in communications with guests.” To get out of having to give refunds, Vail is literally using the Bill Clinton defense.

    COVID concerns in the Northeast

    This is especially annoying for those of us who live a pitching wedge from PA. Not to mention, eastern PA has become a boom town from all the NJ residents fleeing Jersey's high taxes, and there are now THOUSANDS of PA residents who work in Jersey. Oh, but they made an "exception" for them...
