    I agree that regular use puts a lot of wear gondolas but I think vandalism would be a factor too. The vandal's mind is always looking for something to mess up.
  5. A "SMART" Ski Lift: The Future of Ski Lifts?

    I generally hate vandalism and am disappointed when i see its presence in the skiing world. But the threat of vanadlism helping keep marketing TV screens out of chairlifts is a good thing....

    I had forgotten that the lower parts of LL and Nat'l are separately named and actually rated blue. I do agree with those ratings.

    Stowe - Upper Liftline

    Just keep skiers right, directly under the downside of the chair. If the coverage is deep enough that there're potential clearance issues, then you don't have to worry about hitting rocks because...

    Fees for checking bags

    Update on my situation. United granted my refund request. Very surprised! Actually they refunded my entire baggage fees ($270 x 2 total) not just the $200 x 2 I had requested for unnecessary...

    Boston > Denver, Denver > Kalispell MT so yes. And the $200 was each way so it'd be $100 per flight as you math'd it. What perplexes me is that there's no mention of that fee on United, that I can...
