    Precisely; the whole thing is artificial monkeying with markets, which never ends well. And in this case, handing Jay Peak $500 MILLION is a massive competitive advantage that not everyone can...

    I do have an MBA and I do agree; it's a joke. And that artificial manipulation of the market is dangerous & financially harmful to the players that DIDNT commit a massive fraud & get "free"...

    If the population forecast for doubling in 20 years is accurate, that's a massive problem. Even without better people-moving strategies, I wonder if the front 4 ski areas will need to enforce...

    True on both counts.

    As a finance person, it would be difficult for me psychologically to "buy", precisely for the former. Especially when in such an area if you do find a great seasonal...

    I suppose that's true if we're assuming it's only a short-term blip as opposed to a terrible snow year, as Magic's really the only s.VT place I'd want to ski at.

    The problem with buying a place near Magic is their lack of snowmaking. You're basically playing Russian roulette on the snow, which isnt something I'd want to do with may ski real estate.

    The opportunity was there to replace it a few years ago rather than spending millions to fix it (and run it at a reduced capacity to boot). The receiver isnt in business to spend a few extra million...

    Yet another example.

    Again, 10 and 12 minute waits in early December are not normal.

    Those long lines may be EPIC & they may be IKONic, but they are not normal.

    Jay Peak
    Magic Mountain
    Plattekill
    Smuggler's Notch


    Of course, Jay Peak will probably go IKON & Smuggs will probably be bought by Vail, and then I'm screwed. ...

    The best combo is AWD or 4WD with snow tires.

    That way you get the traction & acceleration benefit as well as the stopping & turning benefit.
