    Had to look that one up... New leader in the clubhouse for why UT is experiencing a COVID spike. Can't put it off forever.

    Me neither haha. I think getting out and going skiing will do wonders here.

    As the son of two retired physicians, I can't wait for armchair virology to go away.

    Good to know that things are getting better. Ironically enough, High West is one of my favorite bars I've been to. That said, culturally, Utah and Los Angeles are the two places I've been in the US...

    I get there's a trade-off, but UT is the only place one can live in a Mormon church-state. Don't get me wrong, I find the rules there onerous and the missionaries wandering the streets of PC strange....

    If you're this contemptuous about the culture out there, it sounds like you made a massive error in judgement moving out there in the first place. Maybe Reno or Denver are more your speed.

    Your approach seems totally reasonable to me. I'll just be day tripping this year most likely, so maybe an Indy pass, but that's it.

    I'm ~30 and have no known co-morbidities. I don't expect to be...

    I bet the model works for them. At ~3x the normal rate, that means they need ~1/3 the pass base. Those people are paying for a somewhat limited access experience. There are a LOT of incredibly posh...

    It's funny, I didn't realize there were still people who didn't think this thing came from a lab in Wuhan. I thought the base assumption was it came from a lab and most likely was released...

    Fact check: TRUE. When my family lived on the North Shore when I was little, one of the families with kids my age down the street from us had a place at Sugarloaf when we had one in the MWV. The...

    I think this is the rational thing to do. Seems like the midweek population in the mountains will be the highest ever with new second home buyers/seasonal renters/work from home-ers. It makes the...

    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:
    -There's no way to truly handicap which resort is most likely to shut down...

    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...
