    Yes, the shuttle from Bozeman totally rocks!

    I would totally use the bus instead of driving if I were staying at Bozeman. In fact, you can do the whole trip without bothering with a rental car....

    No. Not with Big Sky "many steps below" Jackson.

    It's a nice mountain all around. But that actually means you want to stay there for more than just a couple days. Especially since 1) you've not...

    That's the forecast showing. But I was wondering if they "overlooked" the upslope potential of Sat/Sun storm? Probably not.

    What's the point of information? What do I care about the moon phase and the tide in the middle of winter, even though it's "readily available" on the internet?

    That was machski’s point that convinced me. The flight’s final destination is Hong Kong. They have every financial incentive to fly instead of cancel.

    Will there be additional upslope snow after the Saturday/Sunday storm? If so, what’s the typical timing of upslope? 24hr?

    I ask because I had a xc lesson appointment on Monday morning. But if...

    Flights booked, on Cathay.

    (I also have 3 days to back out, instead of just 24hr. Like, if another airline came out with a significantly lower fare tomorrow)

    Sure. But you left out “profit margin” from your list of “whatsoever”!

    I’ve seen it in budget airlines where they simply cancel the flight and made their passengers wait for 3 days!

    You can...

    Thanks for the chorus singing the praises of Cathay Pacific.

    For those whom I never met in person, I’m originally from Hong Kong. So the airline is a familiar one. I have no problem flying them. ...

    Good point, I hadn’t thought of that.

    Yes and no.

    How many Stowe skiers live in Stowe? Even for Burlington residents, they can choose between Sugarbush or Stowe. Same with Okemo vs Stratton except those who have condo AT the base of...

    They go west for the snow!

    You totally prove my point. You can easily get the same terrain in the east. But you don't get the snow in the east day in and day out.

    Some years ago (quite a few years, actually), I had this dear friend who said, in a party: "I think all black people are lazy". I was shocked but didn't really know what to say.

    I’m not so much worry about the airline itself. Just the fact there’s only one flight a day. And not being a North America based airline, it obviously won’t have many planes they can redirect from...

    It's illegal!

    What more do I need to say? And you're justifying it as "less illegal" than another serious illegal act?

    Yes, you're the the 2nd group I didn't mentioned. ;)

    I really "like" the idea. Though reality being, they don't fly to too many destinations within north America.

    But they do fly to Japan! :)

    Since I can't decide based on logic, I decide it's time to solicit thoughts processes on what others think. Even if their situation may not be the same, it may provide food for (my) thoughts. :)
  22. Flight conundrum, non-stop vs connection, with a twist

    It's a "happy" conundrum. I'm going to Whistler in about 2 weeks.

    I can fly non-stop, with a once-a-day foreign airline (Cathy Pacific). Or a 1-stop with a "major" (Air Canada or Delta) which has...

    Ikon is missing southern options.

    No matter how you look at it, with the new addition of all the Peak resorts, on top of Stowe and Okemo, Sugarbush doesn’t stand a chance.
