    Seems beneficial to the economy of places like FL... Not sure exactly how much it moves the needle though.

    I certainly don't have a discreet answer for you, but I will say walking on patio though villages/streets out west does noticeable damage. If you plan on doing your days at Plattekill, you need not...

    I've never bought these before, so I have no idea which ones are actually good. But, these are somewhat prevalent out west at places like Whistler where people boot up in a parking garage and walk...

    I think you guys may agree in principal more than you realize (government stuff aside) in that it's not the resort's fault if one can't just show up and use their pass/buy a ticket like they used to...

    Agreed...

    The best way to "game the system" is to probably just pick whichever VT resort you ski the most because:

    I don't want to belabor this point too much, but every time that idiot talks about how great he is at handling COVID-19, he invites this upon himself.

    The relevant point to skiing is that when...

    I see where you're coming from. As I understand, we're doing quite well in terms of active cases. Hopefully, we're now somewhat insulated given the extent to which the disease burned through the...

    Agreed. Credibility has to be continually earned. I really hope it soon gets damaged to the point that a mea culpa is on the horizon.

    What do you mean by this? The northeast was hit hardest upfront and (hopefully) we are best positioned going forward because of how hard we got hit already. We also did a terrible job protecting the...

    I believe it was the Storm Skiing Podcast with the Liftblog.com founder where I heard recently that HSQs are indeed roughly 2x as expensive to build and run/maintain than FGQs.
