    You explained to me why COVID19 breaking out within walking distance (literally) of the only laboratory which houses deadly viruses in a nation roughly the same size as the United States of America...

    No doubt. But are there really that many people to sustain an entire season pass base? It makes me wonder how many SPH they have. I also think Deer Valley is far more of a vacation destination...

    You dont get it.

    When I stated the Wuhan Level 4 BioSafety lab is "walking distance" from the Wuhan wet market where the 1st COVID19 cluster broke out, I meant that literally, not figuratively.

    I thought it was obvious I was talking about raw numbers when I said we're doing more testing than anyone in the world, which, we are.

    That's an excellent point.

    Though the cynical response is that as some here have suspected, the "reservation system" is hurting them financially, and they're trying to walk back fears that it...

    As for "What in the Sam Hell is going on out West", while there are spikes going on, it should be noted that some of the seeming severity of these spikes can essentially be explained by the fact that...

    You're going with the, "it's just a coincidence" theory.

    Nope.

    And the "nope" explanation is both geographically & statistically explained by you in your above sentence.

    "region"

    I'm surprised they can still operate like that in the age of mega-passes. Especially in a place easy driving distance from 8 other legit ski resorts. I wonder if their season pass holders are just...

    When I learned early this year that the only Level 4 BioSafety lab in all of China (Snapple fun fact? China's a pretty big country) was literally in Wuhan, and also walking distance from the...

    If they're so certain, it begs the question of what is the point of their reservation system.

    Judging from this post, there is more you are not "aware of" when it comes to clinical investigation of potential vaccines & therapies, than you are aware of. FWIW, there are many COVID19 vaccines...

    I'm with you in the minority on that. The average skier will not put up with all of this taken in concert. Especially the lodge on cold days being restricted, where the hell will they go? Straight...

    Meh, a completely bogus & artificial price. Dont normalize it by taking it seriously.

    Meh, realistically it will be a one-season thing, two at most. I think every competitor instantly understands this.

    To Jay Peak's great credit, they were one of the very first to really open up tree skiing, and I think maybe that's partially why most of the best in-boundary tree skiing at Jay Peak is on the map. ...

    Jay Peak makes the most sense due to the fact they're desperate. Smuggs also gets a nice chunk of revenue from Canucks too though, so I'd go with one of those two.

    Elk Mountain is about the same distance from me as Platty, and is probably a bit better than Platty, but I'll never ski there again unless they allow tree skiing.
