    VAIL SUCKS

    It was designed by that idiot guy from Peaks that thought he knew everything. Made a mess of that entire new side. Vail fired him or he left before they swung the ax cuz he knew it was coming.

    VAIL SUCKS

    But the entire town of Bennington is on crack or H and has no job and needs a job. Yes they would have to sober up and be a decent human, but there’s your workforce.

    That makes it worse! If the lift lines for those 2 lifts tangle and you can’t tell, fuck that noise. Might as well just walk up the hill. Or walk home. I’d rather get a root canal from Dentist Jeff then wait that long to ski flat vail poop.

    VAIL SUCKS

    The McDonalds and other fast food restaurants in Park City start at higher wage then a lifty and probably the restaurant workers and even year 1 snowmakers.

    Or vail can pay a decent wage and hire people in the community. I grew up skiing a small hill and all employees were from the area. Yes, it was small and total employees were like 50. But still. Hire close

    That’s what happens when you pay like shit, treat your employees like shit, and take any and all fun out of working in the ski industry.

    In other Vail hate news, park city ski patrol Union contract ended in November and I guess current notations are going poor. I hope they all walk out.

    VAIL SUCKS

    I also kinda see this from a unique perspective. I was in the ski biz for 10+ years in upper management and was involved in one very large buyout. For the past 4 years my current company in construction we grow from acquisitions. So I’ve been involved in a half dozen or so. And we are not afraid...

    VAIL SUCKS

    It’s no Tesla but it’s been slow and steady in the right direction since we bottomed out there a year back. Those skier numbers just make it hard to justify spending heavy there. Especially that 60,000 skier visit one (assuming that’s correct data). That’s got to be the lowest in the portfolio...

    VAIL SUCKS

    I didn’t realize skier visit numbers were so low at WildCat and Attatish Those suckers are getting sold. And some others I bet. Vail don’t want or need. I predict June is when they will get sold.

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    These guys still have their director of mountain operations position open. Guess they can’t find anyone? Odd to be this far into a season with that position not filled.

    Renovators work ok but need a deep base and you have to till twice to even have an OK product. They also beat the piss out of a cat. Mount Snows grooming is weak at best. Vail would fix if they could find operators and or someone to train and work with them. Instead it’s just drive around with...

    This is why you track pack before making snow on steeper stuff with crap base in place.
