    Yes. One of the many innovations attributed to Killington. Pretty cool.

    Overall, I like TGR. Last year's movie was a bit of a dud though (the plot was "we went to this exotic location, the weather sucked, we spend 2/3 of the movie talking about how the weather sucked,...

    No more WM for us. The 2017 movie was complete shit. The 2015 one was good, but the product placement, complete douchiness, and lack of quality in the 2017 one has turned me off for good. Not to...

    That is cool.

    It is 60 F, sunny, and dry in SLC. Snowmaking at the resorts has slowed. Brighton got a good jump on things but progress is slow with this kind of weather. A change is coming next...

    Good points. I don't know much about Mammoth or its operations. Again, my perspective is limited only to DV and Solitude, which as I said are not really good benchmarks. I would not expect much...

    So here are my thoughts, admittedly from afar, but I was a regular Sugarbush skier from 2000-2011, and a fan since at least 1994.

    As to Win and Summit Ventures, they have been the best thing that...

    I really doubt it. Any $$$ that would have been used for a Jay purchase went into buying Sugarbush. As much as folks here love Jay, you have to admit that from a business perspective Sugarbush is a...

    My folks in the NEK were saying that they barely got 4 inches. Sounds like from others that it was a dud. Forecasting can be a hard thing to do. At least it is cold up there. Mild and dry here in...

    A lot of western mountains have limited snowmaking when compared to the east. And most of them are relatively new to snowmaking and have adopted systems with fan guns that only require electricity...

    Were you in the marketing business then? Interesting.



    IIRC they did have a lot of trees on the map back in the day. It is flat with a few steep pitches here and there.

    Agreed.

    I am not going to believe it until the closing is done. Hate to say it, but the family has really lost all credibility.

    Bump. Burke will not be sold for at least a year. Nearly $2 million invested in improvements over the last couple years. Not bad. The big concern is creating enough jobs for the EB-5 investors. ...

    Jim made an impromptu visit to Salt Lake last night. They announced it on Tuesday. Good thing I got there early, because very shortly thereafter the line was out the door.
