    I'd only buy a ski home if it met certain criteria financially.

    A. It's in a location that I want to visit frequently outside of the 5 month ski season

    Yes and no. Sad to see it vacant and falling apart for sure. Lots of history just rotting now. Probably not sad that his kids / grandkids don't have the burden of managing a money losing venture. ...

    Is this opinion based off seeing $12 cheeseburgers and $5 candy bars in ski resort cafeterias or actually looking at resort P&L statements?

    I used to be accountable for updating the F&B portions...

    I probably would too, but can't you get both and Epic local and an Ikon pass for near the same money as a full Alta / Bird? Maybe a lot of people are doing that.

    +1

    I think their two biggest mistakes were prioritizing the Kennebago replacement over the Rangeley and spending too much on the lodge. Had they done the Rangeley first and gone with a modest...

    Well, the challenge is the developers couldn't even start until the NY State Constitution is amended.

    Wasted opportunity unfortunately. Same goes for some of the suitable options for downhill...

    I have been wearing Flylow products for the past several years. I'd consider them midhigh end. I've typically been able to find off season deals on their jackets and pants in the $200-300 range...

    Maybe

    I guess my point is the mountain is probably considering operational expenses for putting the park on West vs Whiffletree. It's one less lift to run.

    It's Bode Miller packed powder! ;)

    Cannon is a tough mountain to learn because of what the wind does to it. It just gets scoured, which means vast areas of boilerplate most days. But wherever...

    That's Cannon. Killer mountain with arguably the best technical terrain in NH and likely the most tree skiing in the state too. But, you need sharp edges there. Kind of our version of Whiteface I...

    Timberline would be last on my list. It's open so infrequently due to wind and that's unlikely to change significantly with a new chair. There's just not the same potential ROI on its replacement. ...

    Very cool plans. Though I feel the Superquad replacement with a HS6 should be the top priority over West Expansion.
