    Sorry, I just do not buy that argument for LCC. It has added so.e, but that canyon for years before Ikon has been nuts on big powder days and especially big powder weekend days. Now BCC, that was...

    IMHO, Goat (especially Upper) is the toughest trail of the three you list. Often wind scoured, with that nasty double fall line on Upper, it is a challenge in a good year, this not being one of...

    Increasing volume I would argue when conditions are primo only. I think that was spelled out well at Crystal. They had no issues with traffic or parking until they started getting nuked on. Then...

    BG, you are missing my point a bit here. I am not advocating resorts should replace fixed grips with HSS or even HSQ's. What I was saying is all mechanical machinery has a finite usable life. Many...

    If I were an owner at Hermitage, I wouldn't trust anyone coming in not called Cross Harbour Partners.

    Forfeitures are a small piece of the pie and not why resorts are shifting their pricing models. They want commitment ahead of time to provide more level revenues year over year. You can't survive...

    Fantastic weekend up at the River. Woods are still a bit boney (core shot to prove it) but we're fun to get back into. Great snowmaking in Oz day before the storm and great snowmaking Sunday night...

    Well Edd, they did just drop a lot of $$ on it in the form of new cabins two seasons ago. Need to amortize that cost a bit before removing it. Probably a good idea to replace it with an 8 seat...

    Not much of a crowd at SR today outside of Jordan, and some of that was due to the Oz Quad going down of its first day of operation. Good recovery, Oz was the place to be today. Snowmaking was...

    They didn't say, I would lean towards a 6 there. The Kanc8 is happeneing as an 8 I think mostly because that lift will also be the Mountain Bike Park lift starting in summer 2021 (they will order it...

    Loon's 8 will automatically close and lock in place when down, then auto raise at the top. It also will have a height adjustable loading carpet, just like Big Sky's Ramcharger 8. 6's to me have...

    Loon yes on crowds, SR less so. All lifts are a go at SR this weekend, including Oz which will have both LP and Eureka at a minimum. Usually that lift is ski on or close to it for the hours it...

    I thought North Summit Snowfields were the same access restrictions? Not that they have been open when I've been there, they tend to get wind scoured a lot.

    I'm aware and have benefited but it is not at all reliable. Their lack of Snowmaking fire power is a liability when trying to sell the property to perspective new owners. Whether that is a negative...
